PHISHING ALERT: Job Posting Scams
Scam artists target students by posting fraudulent job opportunities, often under real company names. If you notice a suspicious job opportunity in NACElink, or receive one by email, please notify Barnard Career Development immediately at 212-854-2033. Phishing scams attempt to trick students into providing sensitive personal information (social security, credit card, or bank account numbers) or sending money.
Scams can be disguised as:
- Employment opportunities
- Apartment rentals
- Online schools and training centers
- Sale of merchandise
- Contest winner notification
- Online portals or web-mail services
- Social networking communication
If you have any concerns about a potential employer, job, or internship please contact Barnard Career Development at 212-854-2033 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
