COVID-19 Fraud and Scam - SCAM alert!

We have been advised that an email message regarding a “COVID-19 Support Program” is being issued directly to employees by a sender with a SUNY campus email address domain.

The message refers to a partnership between Green Dot and SUNY to provide a monetary benefit “up to $4,000” to assist “all employees and students experiencing financial hardship as a result of the coronavirus pandemic”, and provides a hyperlinked “SUNY COVID-19 Benefits” web page.
