Scam email from ‘Admin Center’ claims your ‘Mailbox failed to sync’

Posted by Daniel McShanag on 26 September 2018 16:00:14 AEST

Early Tuesday (AEST), MailGuard commenced blocking a new scam email disguised as a fake Office 365 notification, that links to a phishing site. 

Sent from 'Admin Center,' the subject in the emails varies slightly, reading ‘Incoming mails were returned’ or ‘6 incoming emails were returned.’ (see example below)

When recipients click through, they arrive at a fradulent Microsoft portal that is designed to steal the account credentials of unsuspecting users.
