How can you spot an employment scam before you apply?

ALWAYS do research on positions you want to apply for by looking into the company and its staff to ensure it is a real opportunity. If you encounter more than one of the following, you may be at risk for an employment scam:

  • Unheard of hourly pay rate (e.g., $25 per hour)
  • An offer to work completely from home or to telecommute
  • An email as soon as you submit your application
  • Request for some kind of personal identification (e.g., bank account number, driver’s license number, Social Security number)
  • Emails that come from an individual email address not tied to a company or organization (e.g., namehere@gmail.com versus future@iupui.edu)
  • Request for an online interview rather than in person
One website for identifying scams is www.snopes.com; however, if the job is not listed, it does not mean it is not a scam.



What if you already applied and think it is an employment scam?

There are many opportunities posted online through various websites that you may be interested in applying for. If you have already applied and believe it to be scam, there are some steps you can take:

  • Meet with a consultant from the IUPUI Office of Student Employment to report the opportunity and discuss your options moving forward.
  • Submit a consumer complaint to the Federal Trade Commission: http://www.ftc.gov/complaint
  • File a complaint with the IC3 at http://www.ic3.gov, which is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and National White Collar Crime Center
  • File a police report with your local police department
  • Report to Yahoo at http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ymail/spam.html for @yahoo.com email account spam
  • Attach a copy of the email and send it to report_spam@hotmail.com for @hotmail.com email account spam
  • Report the incident to all banks involved in the transaction(s) if financial information was exchanged or if there were financial losses
