Detecting Job Scams

The potential to be targeted for a scam exists everywhere. Scams are often designed as an attempt to obtain monetary gain in a fraudulent manner. Students are urged to please be alert to the potential of fraud when approached in person, by telephone, or through other electronic communication.

Businesses and agencies generally will not contact you by telephone or through electronic communication and ask for passwords or other sensitive personal information. Those who do could be looking for ways to steal your identity or to transfer funds from an account. Many scams are initiated with the promise of turning a small amount of money into a larger amount. Sometimes perpetrators will even give individuals a fraudulent check to deposit in advance of any services performed. 

The Warrensburg Police Department and UCM Department of Public Safety urge everyone to be aware of the different types of common scams. The FBI provides good information on its website concerning common fraud schemes. Please see the link provided, New scams by electronic mail also are posted by the FBI at

Anyone on campus who believes they may have been the victim of an attempted scam is encouraged to contact the UCM Department of Public Safety at 660-543-4123.
