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, AOL, or yahoo address and not a corporate website email address.

Here is a recent email that we caught with the help of University Career Services. 

Be careful! If you have questions about a job post, send us an email at
