 I got an Email with the Subject: LYSTRING: Vi rekommenderar dig att slutföra din Dropbox-installation ASAP

 

And in the body text it say this:

Dina filer är nästan redo för uppladdning
Klicka nedan för att se hur enkelt det är att slutföra din Dropbox-installation: du kommer att kunna komma åt dina filer var du än är.

 

 

Is this a type of scam you think??

Hi @ThoGu, I've got to confirm that this is indeed an official Dropbox domain. 

 

Based on the info you provided in your initial post, it seems you might have installed the app on one of your devices, and it's prompting you to complete it. Can this be the case?

Hi there, @ThoGu, happy Wednesday! 

 

The first thing we need to check, and identify is if the email is coming from an official Dropbox domain. Can you check the email address you received this email from, and let me know? 

 

Keep me posted!

So what was the verdict on that domain? I recently received a similar email from that domain, and a friend told me it was a scam email. I don't use dropbox often at the moment. The last time I logged in was feb. I would just like some confirmation of this is a legit email or not. Thank you.

A Dropbox employee has already confirmed, in the post above yours, that the domain is legit.
