You may see donation requests that you don’t recognize asking for money in the wake of a different cause. Verify all charities on the IRS tax exemption site. Visit the Fraud Support Cybercrime Charity Imposter Scams for warning signs and action steps after donating to a fraudulent charity.
Please remain vigilant and report any fraudulent or phishing emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may be contacted by a scammer who saw your name on the Graduate Center website or another website such as Craigslist.
Often seen at the beginning and end of academic terms, the "tutor scam" is an example of targeted social engineering that tries to establish a relationship to gain your trust and could lead to an advance payment/fake check con.
Characteristics of Tutor Scams:
-You receive an email or text from someone who does not live locally; often, they claim to live in Europe.
-They have a child or niece or nephew who will be in your area temporarily and who needs to be tutored for a short time, such as a few weeks.
-They want to pay you in advance for the entire block of tutoring time.
-They typically use a common Anglo-sounding name (Smith, Wilson, etc.), but their grammar, spelling, and punctuation are inadequate, as from a non-English speaker.
-There may be several rounds of email or texting between you and the scammer, and you may even speak with them on the phone.
Please remain vigilant, now more than ever, and report any fraudulent or phishing emails to email@example.com
