Deactivated Accounts Email from the ‘IT Support Center’ — Phishing Website (8/21/19)
The phisher is attempting to have VCU users click the malicious link in order to steal the user’s passwords. We know this is a scam due to a couple of reasons:
- The email address is ‘@uwm.edu’ and not a VCU email address (@vcu.edu).
- The grammar is bad (E.g. …advised to verify this request otherwise give us reason to deactivate your account….)
- The text uses multiple colors (green, red, black(.
- This person claims to be an ‘Instructor’ and ‘IT Support Center’
You can see a screenshot of the email below.
