Security Reminder: Fake Job Offers

Recently Wright State students have been the target of email scams containing fake job offers. Below are tips to help recognize these phishing attempts:

  • If an email is difficult to read (poor grammar or wording), it is most likely a scam.
  • If a job offer seems too good to be true, it most likely is.
  • Never accept a job that requires you to deposit checks into your own account, or wire a portion of money from your account. 
  • Read any career offer carefully.
  • Banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions will never ask for your account information in an email. 
  • If you think you have been a target of a phishing scam, file a report with the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint center here:
