Protect Yourself Online

There has been an increase in JSOM students reporting predator and scam organizations. The scams often impersonate a legitimate business and utilize images, text, job descriptions and/or letterhead from the real organization. Students are encouraged to independently research vendors and their affiliates before accessing any services not affiliated with UT Dallas. It is strongly recommended you Google the vendor name and the word “scam” as the search criteria. Also, research organizations and potential scams through The Riley Guide, Glassdoor, the Better Business Bureau, and/or Career Insider powered by Vault (a CMC subscription resource available with NetID verification). Note employers will likely contact you through official corporate email communication. A recruiter contacting you through Gmail and Google Hangout communications may be red flags the organization is a scam.

Finally, trust your instincts: If the opportunity sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If you encounter a predator company or a scam, report the suspicious activity to the JSOM Career Management Center and the UT Dallas Police Department.
