Campus Announcements
Students Beware of Job Advertisements Through Email
Students should be aware of a money laundering scam. Emailers may send you an email about a job opening, and then will ask for bank numbers without doing any type of formal interview. They will usually ask for the job seeker to send them money though PayPal, or wiring the money. 

Students should just be aware of the jobs that seem too good to be true. If you are concerned that you are the victim of a scam please contact the Kansas State University Police.
