The Information Security Office was alerted to this phishing scam that is designed to trick the victim into providing banking information as a means of direct deposit in exchange for a fake job that does not exist. Once the banking information is provided, the hacker withdraws a large sum of money from your account. Generally if something looks to easy or good to be true it is a scam and should be ignored and deleted. These scams have become more and more common over the past few years and they prey on students looking for an easy way to make some extra money.

How are you doing today? This is Sean Canfield. I saw your contact at the Loyola University, Chicago, Department of Computer Science under the Directory’s portal. I seek a private computer science(programming) tutor for my Daughter. I would like to know if you have a STUDENT/TUTOR available for the job.
As you will be unable to tutor her owing to your BUSY SCHEDULE/STATUS, you can RECOMMEND one of your STUDENT(s) who is capable of tutoring.
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the tutoring could be done remotely. This depends on the tutor’s directive.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
