We are aware of an ongoing scam that is attempting to pass itself off as being our president Prof Dr Pål Barkvoll.
Similar to other scam emails that often tell a story to trick you into sending money to someone in distress, in this one the scammer requests money posing as Prof Dr Pål Barkvoll. This version of the scam presents as being delivered from the person’s own email address appear to be ‘spoofed’ (made to appear as though it comes from the victim’s email address when it has actually been sent from the scammer’s email address). In this case the messages are coming from the following sender: firstname.lastname@example.org.
