ALL Emails Offering Part-Time Jobs Are Scams

Date: 
Thursday, June 2, 2022 - 13:39

If you receive ANY unsolicited email offering a part-time job, personal assistant position, TA slot or any other employment, DO NOT RESPOND.

These are scam emails designed to extort money from you.

Usually, they offer you a job, then send you a "certified check" or electronic payment. They then ask you to "send" some of the money back. You quickly find the original payment check bounces or is otherwise no good, and you are out the money you sent.

You can help UVA Information Security by reporting the messages to us (it-security@virginia.edu) so we can block the scammers.
