JOB SCAM! Watch out for emails like this one.








Hello i have a Job for you,  I contacted your school admin at  UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON ; I graduated from there. I explained that I was looking for an Administrative/Personal Assistant and your email was sent to me, they said you are an honest person. This job is flexible so you can perform the tasks during your spare time outside of school and the position is extremely rewarding. Get back to me by texting me on this number (862) 267-XXXX ASAP if you are interested in more information.


Mr  Jared

This a scam and there are so many red flags… Poor grammar and punctuation. A job that we wouldn’t post. It is from a gmail or yahoo address and not a corporate website email address. Etc.

Be careful and if you have questions, send us an email at
