Students targeted in employment scams
According to the Better Business Bureau website, criminals are targeting students with fake job offers through emails sent to their college accounts. The employment scam criminals deceive their victims using four basic tactics:
- Asking for bank account information for direct deposit of a paycheck
- Requiring a Social Security Number and other personal information to “process paperwork”
- Requesting payment up front, supposedly for a background check, drug testing, and training
- Payment is only accepted through non-traceable methods
