Oct. 9, 2019 - Have you received a job offer via email from a "Dr. Greenfield or a Dr. Logan"? CI has seen an increase in job scams recently targeting our student population. Here are some ways to spot these employment scams:

  • If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. 
  • Do your research, look online, and reach out to infosec@csuci.edu if you have any questions or concerns.
  • Most jobs require a resume, an interview, a background check, and a job application.
  • Asking you to buy a gift card to iTunes or any other service is a sign the offer is a scam.
  • Do not share your information until you have verified the possible employer as being legitimate.

Think you can spot a Phishing email? Take the Phishing quiz from Google.
