Scam email

On 2 May 2019, a criminal attempted to inform employees of the university by e-mail.

It started with a simple email that was supposed to come from Thom Palstra. Only a Gmail address was used.

Are you available?

Those who responded received a request to purchase iTunes vouchers and to send the information on the card to the criminal.

I'm in a meeting right now and that's why i'm contacting you through here. I should have call you, but phone is not allowed to be use during the meeting.I don't know when the meeting will be rounding up, And i want you to help me out on something very important right away.

The criminal's e-mail address is blocked, but this person may try again with a different address. So be careful with mail that does not come from the regular address. Never transfer money and never buy vouchers.

Update: Criminals did another attempt on 1th June.
