There is an email phish on campus currently asking recipients of emails to help a coworker. The email states the coworker is busy in meetings and needs help getting a gift card for a family member. There is a promise of reimbursement.
Please note that this is a SCAM. Do not reply to these emails and definitely do not purchase gift cards for someone else.
If you get the email, notice that the sender is using a @yahoo.com email address and not an @uthsc.edu email. Please delete the email from your inbox and do not communicate further with the individual.
