Dear WSU Student / Alumnus,


Please take time to read this very important email:

It has been brought to our attention that fraudulent individuals are posing as ’employers’ thereby trying to make contact with students. Fraud schemes have been around for some time and are constantly evolving with technology. Even though we have processes in place to scan companies and ensure they are legitimate, you need to be proactive so that you do not fall victim to one of these schemes.

To assist you, Career Services has compiled a list of “red flags” you should look for before accepting any job offer: 


MISSPELLED WORDS AND BAD GRAMMAR:  If you receive an email or letter from a company that has spelling errors, misused words, bad grammar or other typos, this is probably not a legitimate email or letter from the company.

PERSONAL CONTACT INFORMATION:  If a person asks you to contact them via personal contact information, such as a home mailing address, personal cell phone or personal email account (such as hotmail, gmail, yahoo, etc.) do NOT give them your information.

RECEIVING EMAIL FROM A PERSONAL ACCOUNT:  If a person contacts you from a personal email account (such as hotmail, gmail, yahoo, etc.) do NOT give them your information.  Legitimate businesses conduct business through a business email.

STARTING WORK BEFORE FILLING OUT PAPERWORK:  If a company wishes to hire you for a legitimate position, you will complete hiring paperwork and forms for tax purposes, BEFORE you start work.

ASKED TO PROVIDE SENSITIVE FINANCIAL OR PERSONAL INFORMATION:  NEVER provide banking information, your social security number or credit card information over the phone or via email.  A legitimate company will not ask you this information until you are filling out hiring paperwork that will include federal and state documents.

WIRE TRANSFERS OR ASKING YOU TO INVEST YOUR MONEY:  Legitimate companies will NEVER ask you to conduct a wire transfer to a client, customer, etc.  You should NEVER have to pay out of pocket or use your personal bank account to conduct company business.


A good rule to keep in mind–“IF a job opportunity sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”


To research common fraud schemes go the the FBI’s website for fraud at:

To research the legitimacy of a company, refer to the Better Business Bureau

To file a formal complaint with the State of Michigan, contact the Consumer Protection Division under the State Attorney General’s Office:


If you are suspicious about a company or recruiter that contacted you or have any questions, please call Career Services at (313)577-3390 to speak with a counselor or stop by the office in Room 1001 of the Faculty / Administration Building.
