Email gift card scam

March 4, 2019

There’s an email scam that’s been making the rounds for over a month now, most recently landing in a bunch of BE folks inboxes.


The scam is a social engineering phishing attempt where by a superior’s name is used (most often from an unrelated email address) to trick the recipient into acting on buying a gift card, urgently.  

Unfortunately spoofing emails is relatively easy to do and in no way mean the named senders' account has been compromised.

IS&T has an informational article should you wish to delve further.
