Even as the campus, employers, and the country mobilize to protect against COVID-19, scammers are taking advantage of fears around the virus. Be extra careful about calls, texts, and emails regarding employment opportunities. In times like these, scammers are taking advantage of everyone’s extra stress to send fake messages and victimize you financially.
Beware of promises that seem too good to be true such as text messages or emails related to job offers. Clicking links in these texts and emails can put viruses on your device. Use the employer’s website or LinkedIn page to double-check the validity of the job.
