Cybersecurity Awareness Month Week 3: Don’t fall for job scams

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Each year, Technology Solutions develops a special campaign to raise awareness on how students, faculty and staff can better detect and protect themselves from cybercrime. This year’s campaign — True Stories — features real stories and scam attempts at UIC.

True Stories Week 3: Don’t Fall for Job Scams
There are many types of scams, but a common one we see targeting students are fake jobs emails. Students eager for work get enticed by job offers that sound appealing but turn out to be scams aiming to steal sensitive information and even trick students out of money. This week, we share how to identify and spot a scam email and what to do if you receive a suspicious email.
