Employment Scams

If a job seems too good to be true, be cautious. There are various employment scams designed to gain access to people’s money, bank account information, social security number, or identity. These scams often are posted on online job boards, in newspapers, or via e-mail.

WSSU Career Development Services Office will block fraudulent employers from posting positions on RAMTRAK once we become aware of them. However, due to the creatively deceptive means by which jobs are posted by scammers, we cannot guarantee the validity of every employer or job posted.
