Job Scams

Here are some red flags to watch for when applying to any job, anywhere in the world.

Beware of the following items in a job posting. These are likely indicators of jobs that are not legitimate or scams:

  • There is not a company name or the email address does not match the company name
  • Someone offers to pay a large amount for almost no work
  • Someone offers you a job without ever interacting with you
  • Someone wants you to transfer money from one account to another
  • Someone offers to send you a check before you do any work
  • Someone asks you to give your credit card or bank account numbers or copies of personal documents—but you get nothing in writing
  • Someone says you must send payment by wire service or courier
  • Someone offers you a large payment or reward in exchange for allowing the use of your bank account; often for depositing checks or transferring money
  • If someone sends you an unexpectedly large check

The Career Services/Student Employment Office at Pittsburg State University does not research the integrity of each employer listing a job due to the volume of jobs received by this office. Therefore, you are urged to undertake this responsibility for yourself. PSU's Student Employment Office acts only as a referral service and makes no particular recommendations regarding potential employers. Neither PSU nor Career Services makes any representation or guarantee whatsoever about any position listed on the Job Board, nor does PSU or Career Services assume any responsibility for safety, wages, working conditions, or any other aspect of off-campus non-contract employment.
