Phishing Scams and Schemes Unveiled

Phishers never take a break, especially before a long holiday. This particular email was sent out on Friday after. The phisher is attempting to be ‘VCU HelpIt’ and they need you to re-validate your email. Here are some warning signs that this email is not legitimate:

  • The ‘VCU helpIT’ center has not been called that in many years (It is now the IT Support Center)
  • There are misspellings (‘Dear (VCU Health) Accouunt User)
  • The actual email is from ‘awebmail369@gmail’. This is not a valid VCU email address.
  • They are linking to a non-VCU website

As always, if you see a suspicious email, please forward it to before you click on any links or respond! If you do forward us the email, you can be entered into a raffle to win cool prizes! Learn more at
