FRAUD ALERT: Job Application Email Scams

A new version of an email scam attempt has recently been circulating. There are numerous versions, using various sender names and subject lines, and are accompanied by embedded links and/or at least one Excel, Word, or other file attachment. Sample email wording is as follows:

"Good Morning,

I'm [redacted] and I'm interested in a position.

I think I would be a fantastic addition to your company.

I've added a copy of my CV.

Password is 1234

Looking forward to hearing back from you!"

These emails are attempting lure you into downloading a virus attached to or linked from the email. As this is a confirmed scam attempt, you may simply dismiss and delete the message.

If the attachment is opened and the user does not have anti-virus software or firewall programs on their computer, their system could be infected. As always, links and attachments in unsolicited or unanticipated emails should not be accessed unless the sender can be positively verified, as they may contain viruses. If you believe you know the sender, but suspect that the email is a scam, it is best to contact the person or company directly (without responding to that email), in order to verify the sender.
