A potential scam has been reported on university campuses in Ontario where job opportunities are offered in exchange for personal information. Carleton University faculty and students are encouraged to be vigilant. It has been reported that anonymous sign-up sheets have been circulating in lecture halls and classrooms requesting personal information. Students should never release personal information and should notify their instructor if they are solicited for personal information in class. Instructors should contact the Department of University Safety if this is occurring in their classes. At Carleton, official job postings are available through the mySuccess portal on the Career Services website. Career Services offers tips to protect students from fraudulent practices. These tips include ensuring the business is clearly identified, that the business makes contact from an official email address, and that financial or personal information is not being collected without meeting someone from the company.
