Just a heads up, this is all new to me.

I got an email from an address at a school account. I figured it was some kid trying his hand at a scam. It turns out it is a professor at the school.. the email asks me to help with transporting money blahblahblah and to reply to a different address.

What should I do? I dont think i want to get involved messing with the scammer.. in which case ill post the email to the other forum.. but should i go after the professor? or is it likely that the scammer hacked his email?

What do you guys think?

Hi citylikeamradio and welcome to Eater!

This is common with lads. The account that sent it has nothing to do with the scam. Chances are it was phished by a scammer and then they used the login credentials to 'throw' the format from that account.

There is nothing that can be done except you can notify the school's IT department of the possible phished account. In this case it would be: its@vanderbilt.edu

Forward them the whole email with the headers. Very Happy

xxxxxx is an older gentleman who is a Professor in the xxxxxx Department. I highly doubt he is scamming people.

I used to work at Vanderbilt. I would email their IT department there.

Email for the IT department: its@vanderbilt.edu

Someone could have hacked into the email account.

Edited: Dora beat me to the punch.

Hi Bob welcome to Eater,

You should x out your own email address from the header.

Vandy will be very interested in those headers. The IT department will get to the bottom of it and whatever staff/student person who hacked into the account will be terminated/dismissed without further ado. Having worked there and working closely with one member of their IT department for our division's computer system, they will act fast--- super fast. They might even go further and try to prosecute.

Whoever that Capt. Smith is, he will wish he really were in Iraq when it is all over.

^^^ Morgain, anything is possible, but I am pretty sure it wasn't hacked but more likely phished by a scammer. People get phished all the time -- even university professors/professionals. Very Happy

Whether a phisher of addies or a hacker of academic accounts, hopefully that honest soljur is going to yield me two bank accounts.
Is it a co-incidence or what? I have a large number of soljurs in my catcher these days. More than usual, I mean to say.

I got a letter in my catcher account the other day with UCLA.edu in the headers. I sent the information to the UCLA IT Department. Usually when you send to the IT Dept at an educational institution, you don't hear anything -- and that is fine as they can handle or not.

UCLA wrote to me later saying they had investigated and taken appropriate action, disabling the account. And also thanked me very much for being alert.

.edu accounts are the only ones I "turn in". After I get the other address they are going to scam me from. Those belong to a university, lads should stick to nice yahoo or somesuch other accounts, right?

You should immediate contact your nearby police station. And do the deeds that should be legal.
