Job Posting Scams- Phishing Alert
If you see a position in Wildcat Careers (or ANY job site) and/or receive an email from an employer that you believe may be a scam, please notify UNH Career and Professional Success immediately by calling 603-862-2070 or emailing Meghan.O'Shaughnessy@unh.edu. Phishing scams attempt to trick you into providing sensitive personal information (i.e., social security numbers and credit card/banking details) or into sending money or other items of value.
These scams come in many forms and disguises, including:
• Employment (Fraudulent Job Postings)
• Online schools and training centers
• Fraudulent eBay sellers
• Emails about being a contest winner
The following characteristics are key red flags of potential fraud or scams:
• You must provide your credit card, bank account numbers, or other personal financial documentation.
• The posting appears to be from a reputable, familiar company (often a Fortune 500), but the domain in the contact's email address does not match the domain used by representatives of the company (this is typically easy to determine from the company's website).
• The position initially appears as a traditional job, but upon further research, it sounds more like an independent contractor opportunity OR they ask you to run their errands to start and will send you a check for it.
• You are offered a large payment or reward in exchange for allowing the use of your bank account (often for depositing checks or transferring money).
• The position requires an initial investment, such as a payment by wire service or courier.
• The employer responds to you immediately after you submit your resume. Note: this does not include an auto-response.
• When you Google the company name and the word "scam" (e.g. Company X Scam), the results show several scam reports concerning this company. Another source for scam reports is ripoffreport.com.
• The employer's phone number, fax number and/or email address does not appear connected to an actual business organization in a Google search.
• The employer tells you that they do not have an office set-up in your area, and will need you to help them get it up and running.
If you have any concerns about a potential employer, job or internship, please contact UNH Career and Professional Success immediately at 603-862-2070 or Meghan.O'Shaughnessy@unh.edu. We will look into the matter on your behalf and take appropriate action. If you believe you are the victim of fraud resulting from a job listing, please contact the local police as well 603-862-1427.
