Part-time job seekers are urged to be on the alert for fraudulent job schemes specifically targeting college students through job postings, unsolicited email and direct messages through social media accounts. 

In general, be sure to carefully review job postings and use caution and common sense when applying. Here are common strategies scammers use when targeting college students:

  • Hiring you to shop for office supplies, gift cards or mystery/secret shopping
  • Offering you a large sum of money/check to deposit into your bank account (after you deduct your salary) and then wire/transfer remaining money to their agents
  • Utilizing a recognizable company name, but then communicating through a generic email account (Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.)
  • Sending you an email/direct message offering you a part-time job you did not apply for
  • Requesting you to put money MoneyPak, Vanilla Reload or a Reloadit card
  • Mailing you a check before you do any work
  • Asking you to pay an application fee

Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
