IT has received multiple reports of an email scam that purports to be from UWO administration.  Similar to previous attacks, the attacker sends an email that appears to come from a trusted person or a leader. In this case, the attacker is using Chancellor Leavitt’s name.  When the intended victim responds, the attacker asks them purchase gift cards or a wire transfer of funds.
If you receive an email like this, it is nearly always a scam.  Simply block the sender and delete the message.
Thank you!
