We are again seeing one of the more common ones that attempts to get you to email your banking information to the scammer in exchange for a non-existent job. The way these work is that they “hire” you and ask for your routing and account number so that you can get “paid”. The scammer then withdraws money from your account an disappears. The email address appears to come from a Loyola email box. Please see the text below. If you see this email message, please do not respond and delete the message. You can permanently delete the message by highlighting the message, holding the SHIFT key, and pressing delete.
Here is a sample of the latest phish.
