How can I tell if a signature request is a phishing attempt?

A genuine DocuSign signature request link begins https and contains a link to docusign.net:

DocuSign link

 

 

Anything else is likely a fake. When in doubt, do not click any link in an alleged signature request. Instead, go directly to DocuSign and log into your account. Any documents/envelopes that legitimately require your signature will be in the "Action Required" section.  If you have any concerns about the validity of any email you receive or to report a phishing scam, please contact the VCU IT Support Center (828-2227, itsc@vcu.edu) for assistance.
