Employment Scams Targeting College Students

The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) has issued an alert on employment scams targeting college students.  Phony job opportunities are advertised via college employment websites or sent to students’ university email addresses.  Unfortunately, students who have taken the bait have suffered financial losses.  For more information and tips on avoiding these scams please review the IC3 Alert.  US-CERT Tip ST04-014 is another useful reference on social engineering and phishing attacks.
