Internship Program Alert, Scam (6-14-18)

The following is yet another job scam. This scam will have the victim send their resume over to the scammer to 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. This email in particular has a “See Instruction in the Attached” in the body. The scam information is located inside the attached Text document.

Some signs that his is a scam are that the victim did not reach out first. The email address the scammer is using is not related to Dr. Morgan at all. The address used is not an business email and the email signature does not have any information about which company they represent. The grammar is also off, there are spelling error in the title of the the attachment and in the attachment. Note that if someone was to offer a job they would use their business email and request an interview.

If you have received this email please delete it.
