Phishing Scams

PHISHING ALERT: Job Posting Scams 

Scam artists target students by posting fraudulent job opportunities, often under real company names. If you notice a suspicious job opportunity in NACElink, or receive one by email, please notify Barnard Career Development immediately at 212-854-2033.  Phishing scams attempt to trick students into providing sensitive personal information (social security, credit card, or bank account numbers) or sending money.  

Scams can be disguised as:

  • Employment opportunities
  • Apartment rentals
  • Online schools and training centers
  • Sale of merchandise
  • Contest winner notification
  • Online portals or web-mail services
  • Social networking communication

 If you have any concerns about a potential employer, job, or internship please contact Barnard Career Development at 212-854-2033 or ocd@barnard.edu
