Re: Is this a scam?

I received a suspicious email by no-reply@em-s.dropbox.com to view a document - is it legit?

I received an email from no-reply@em-s.dropbox.com with a link to this document that's asking me to sign in to my microsoft account. It's blurry and looks dodgy as sin. Any ideas if this is a scam?

Cheers

Hey @Fmabs! Thanks for posting this on the forum. 

 

At first glance, the domain of the sender looks legit, as em-s.dropbox.com is one of our official Dropbox domains indeed.

 

Is this what you see after clicking on the link that was sent via email? Can you send a screenshot of the original email you received? 

 

Finally, were you expecting to receive any documents from a third party? 

 

Keep me posted.

Thanks Nancy, I've attached a screen shot. This person is in my far reaching networks but not directly and I wasn't expecting the document.  Does drop box ever ask you to sign in to your outlook account to view a document? Could the document itself be the problem, not the dropbox link itself?

Thanks

And yes, this is the page I'm directed to when I click on the link in the email.

Hey @Fmabs, thanks for the additional info.

 

I would definitely advise you not to provide any credentials, just in case it is a spam email.

 

If you know the sender, I would suggest reaching out to them directly, to ask for more info, without clicking anything further.
