Avoid Fraudulent Employers

Since job seekers have gotten better at spotting fraudulent postings, impostors are coming up with new tactics to hook you. They want you to apply to their fake jobs so they can steal your personal information and defraud you. Here are some of their latest tactics: Imposters have sent students private messages on LinkedIn with job offers. “Hiring managers” have even sent students emails stating that they received your email address from connectSC/Symplicity. As part of the “screening” process, employers should reference the title of the position for which you applied in their email, but they should never ask you to deposit money or disclose your personal information (e.g., social security or driver’s license number). You must also check the recruiter’s email handle to verify whether it matches the organization’s website address; many scammers will send emails from personal email addresses or with email handles similar to legitimate organizations (e.g., @wholesfoods.com instead of @wholefoods.com). If you find a job posting in connectSC or receive an email that seems suspicious, use this form and report the organization immediately. View this video, and check out our website for extra tips!
