NEW PART-TIME PERSONAL ASSISTANT POSITION, Scam (3-29-2018)

The following is a job offer scam in which the scammer is posing as an employer who is looking to hiring students. This scam will have the victim send thier resume over to the scammer and either be offered a job and asked to cash checks to send money over to vendors. These checks will bounce and the victim will be out however much they sent the scammers. This is very similar to the previous job offer scams.

Some signs that this is a scam are that the victim did not reach out first, the email that the scam is being sent from is not the same email where the scammer is requesting the resume be sent to. Both emails are not business emails and the email signature does not state which company they represent. Note that if someone was to offer a job opportunity they would use the business email.

If you have received this email please delete it.

New-Message, Scam (3-30-2018)

The following is scam in which the scammer is pretending that they have a document for the victim to view. The scammer attempts to exploit the victim’s trust in a third party application, in this case, DocuSign. The scammer is hoping that the victim will trust that the link leads to Docusign and will click.

Upon hovering over the link the victim can see that the link does not direct to DocuSign but rather another URL. If you are not expecting a document from the sender then do not click the link. Chances are high that it is a scam.

If you have recieved this email please delete it.
