Dear UC Community,
The UC Police have recently been made aware of a number of online scams involving gift cards. The scammers send communications that appear to come from someone the victim knows, such as a co-worker or family member, and asks the email recipient to purchase a gift card. There is often an urgency to the request, and the scammer will ask the recipient to purchase the card at a nearby store.
Once the recipient purchases the gift card, the scammer will ask for the gift card number and pin, allowing them immediate access to the money on the card. Once accessed by the scammer, it is unlikely the victim will get their money back.
If you believe you have received a suspicious email:
James L. Whalen
Director, Public Safety
