Beware of Job Scam Emails
Scammers are sending job scam emails to CF students from compromised accounts. These emails are designed to trick students into providing personal information and potentially engage in sending funds to them.
Red flags to look out for:
- They are asking for personal information
- They are asking you to shop for them
- You have to send money to them or someone on their behalf
- The job sounds too good to be true
- They won’t meet you in person
There are many sites on the internet that will educate you about email scams, most notably the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Agency. This document is a good starting point. Don’t let yourself fall prey.
