Avoiding Scams

It is very important for you to educate yourself about potential scams. These are some common signs that a job is most likely fraudulent:

  • The promise of a large salary for very little work - especially those that state thousands of dollars of income per month with little or no experience required
  • Positions that ask you to give credit card or bank account numbers, or copies of personal documents 
  • Jobs that ask you to send payment by wire service or courier 
  • Positions in which you are offered a large payment or reward in exchange for allowing the use of your bank account - often for depositing checks or transferring money 
  • While there are legitimate opportunities for individuals to work from home, be sure to research the position in advance of applying

If you suspect a position is fraudulent, please contact the Career Center. If you believe you are the victim of fraud resulting from a job listing, please contact the local police as well.
