Yesterday my boss received an email from BIG SOFTWARE COMPANY (let’s call them BS for short 😉) alerting us that we would be billed for a data overage in 15 days unless the situation was fixed and to contact our account executive with any questions.
My boss does not use BS so he forwarded the email to me. Naturally, I had lots of questions. Was this a scam using scare tactics trying to get us to click on a link? Who was this account executive who I have never spoken to or heard of before)? Why was the email sent to my boss whose email address is currently not associated with BS and who is not the BS Admin for our organization?
I went to investigate the email because money was on the line.
