Fraud Alert: Job Scams

January 13, 2021

There have been several reports of attempts to scam students through fraudulent job postings. Avoid these scams by watching for these warning signs:

  • You received a job offer without an application or interview
  • You are offered a job different from the one you applied for
  • You’re promised high pay for easy work or limited amount of work hours
  • You’re being asked to use your bank account to conduct business on behalf of the company
  • You’re told you have to pay for training, software or materials
  • You’re asked to use your own money to purchase gift cards or other items of value to send back to the “employer”

Many scammers now have an elaborate website with a matching professional-looking email which makes it difficult to tell if they are legitimate or not. If you have any doubts or questions, please contact Student Employment Services at ses@rrc.ca.
