From the 20 August 2002 AFIO e-Bulletin Board notices WARNING ABOUT POSSIBLE <> "RESEARCH" RUSE: "The Defense Security Service has reported an apparent e-mail intelligence collection scheme that has been traced to e-mail addresses in foreign countries. Cleared industrial facilities have been requested to report any attempts as described below. In the recent past several employees of cleared defense contractors have received e-mails from persons purporting to be students, who asked for help with alleged educational projects they were working on. The employees contacted did not know the "students." The "students" somehow knew who had some degree of expertise pertaining to the focus of their educational project. In some instances, the employees contacted were working on classified projects. It appears classified information may have been requested. Should you receive an e-mail from someone you do not know requesting information for a Masters Thesis, or any other educational research paper, from someone claiming to be a student at an institute of higher learning, do not respond. Keep the e-mail and contact the NCI Facility Security Officer responsible for your location. He/she will contact a Defense Security Service Industrial Security Representative for guidance. REMEMBER!!! You do not have to hold a security clearance or work with classified information to be a target of foreign intelligence collection efforts!"
