Quick Task Phishing Email

Issued: 04/14/21

Updated: 05/04/21

If you receive an email message that appears to be from someone you know with a message similar to "I will need you to get a task done. Let me know when you are available," it is likely a phishing or spoofing attempt. These attempts try to trick recipients into believing that the "sender" wants some help and ultimately tries to get the recipient to provide them with gift cards or purchases from online stores. Do not respond to these emails.
