Early in January, someone reported that they had received an email from one of their friends. The email requested that the student help the friend by buying gift cards and sending the information over email. The student did just that, but when they met the friend in person, the friend had no knowledge of the situation. University of Maine Police Department (UMPD) investigated and found that a fake email address was created using the friend’s partial name and the words @maine.edu. The fake address was actually a gmail account, however. The student contacted the gift card and credit card companies.
