Date: May 5, 2023
Please be aware, Higher Education institutions within the state have reported receiving a fraudulent email that appears to come directly from the Department of the Treasury of Virginia (trsvirginia.org). The fraudulent email instructs the recipient to use a wire transfer rather than Cardinal for payments.
Always be wary when receiving unusual emails, and if you process VCCS payments be alert for this specific email.
If you have questions about authenticity, it is best to reach out to the source directly through genuine contact information to ensure its validity. Never click embedded links or reply to the sender if the legitimacy of a correspondence is in question.
Thank you for your vigilance.
