Email subject: Re: Morning

This fake email comes from a non-Sussex address, but claims to be from Adam Tickell.

These emails are short and simple ask you to reply.  If you reply, you will begin a conversation with a criminal who will try to convince you to pay a fake bill.

Delete these emails if you receive them.

The University's new email filtering system has blocked 93% of these emails from reaching inboxes, and this ratio has increased as the system has learned and adapted.

Appears to be Adam Tickell (non-Sussex email address)
