Summary

The fraudulent email comes from a compromised CSULB email account and claims that the recipient's email quota has been reached and to click on a link to "validate" their mailbox.  CSULB would never ask employees to click on a link to "validate" their mailbox or to increase their quota.  The compromised CSULB account is being addressed.

Intent of the Email

The phisher/sender is attempting to capture email account credentials for their own malicious purposes.
