Wired Funds Scams

IT Support Services and the California State University, Chico Police Department would like to remind students and employees to be on the lookout for email scams that sometimes involve the wiring of funds.

If you receive an unsolicited email, or an unusual check accompanied by a letter, requesting that funds be wired to the solicitor through a money wiring service, do not respond by telephone or email and do not provide the solicitor with any of your personal information. The solicitation may be for employment, the purchase of iTunes and other gift cards, or for the completion of a survey.

These email schemes have been used worldwide and are examples of scams used to defraud people of their money. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

To learn more about this and other scams, please review the following online resources:
