Alert - DocuSign Scam
Monday, January 28, 2013
On 1/24/2013, DocuSign became aware of new malware spam emails that are being sent as if coming from the DocuSign service. These emails are not coming from DocuSign. Please do not click on any links or attachments therein. They are coming from an unrelated, malicious third party attempting to copy DocuSign’s email branding in the hopes of fooling recipients into opening the email and clicking on links and/or attachments.
As a recipient, you can recognize safe, secure DocuSign links by hovering your mouse over them before you click on them to ensure that they start with: https://www.docusign.com or https://www.docusign.net.

If you believe you received malware spam email, please forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org and then immediately delete it from your system.
