The pdf that was attached in the following email was scanned, and while not malicious, it did contain a note purporting to be from the University asking to click a Google Docs link. The link itself is not malicious either but it directs people to a form asking for login credentials, which has malicious intent.  Fordham will NEVER ask you to provide confidential information via email.

Just hoping this email reaches you well, I'm sorry for this emergency and for not informing you about my urgent trip to London-United Kingdom,i came down here to United Kingdom for a short vacation . Everything was fine until I was attacked on my way back to the hotel, I wasn't hurt but I lost my money, bank cards, Cell phones and my bag in the course of this attack. I immediately contacted my bank in order to block my cards and also made a report at the nearest police station. I've been to the embassy and they are helping me with my documentation so i can fly out but I'm urgently in need of some money to pay for my hotel bills and my flight ticket home, will definitely REFUND as soon as back home.

Kindly let me know if you would be able to help me out so I can forward you the details required for a wire transfer.

waiting to hear back from you..

Thanks

Hope Freedman
