Job Scams Target Students

CSU, Chico students are often targeted with scams promising jobs. Students have been scammed out of money or had campus accounts compromised by job-related phishing scams. If an email or job offer sounds too good to be true it probably is. Most legitimate jobs do not require you to pay money or send personal information via email.

Do Not Respond to any job advertisement or offer that requires you to:

  • Give your credit card or bank account numbers or copies of personal documents.
  • Send payment by wire service or courier.
  • Deposit checks or transfer money into your bank account.
  • Receive or process a large check.

Don’t hesitate to check with ITSS if you are unsure about the authenticity of an email you’ve received. The Career Center (SSC 270 or 530-898-5253) can also help you determine if a job posting is a scam.
