Feb. 1, 2019 - Have you received a job offer via email from a "Dr. Greenfield" or "Dr. Logan?" If so, there is a strong chance that this job offer does not actually exist. CSUCI has seen an increase recently in job scams targeting our students. Use the following tips* to identify potential scam attacks: 

  • If it's too good to be true, it probably is
  • Do your research, look online and reach out to infosec@csuci.edu if you have questions or concerns
  • Most jobs require a resume, an interview, a background check and 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
