CRC CAREER CENTER
Hello students and alumni,
We wanted to address the situation that is currently affecting our students and alumni. There is an email being sent out by a Patricia Brown or Douglas Alfred regarding a career opportunity. The email is said to be sent from the CRC Career Center, however this is a scam. We would never give out personal information to any employer or company.
A few tips on how to spot a suspicious email:
1) The CRC Career Center email address is: crc-careercenter (at) crc [dot] losrios [dot] edu. Always take a closer look at where the email is being sent from and double check that it is valid and coming from the real CRC email address.
2) It is normally a red flag when the employer is out of the country and plans to do all of the communication via bank transfer or use a P.O. Box.
3) Another red flag is when they are requesting specific information from you (i.e. phone number, FULL name, Address, and even your Social Security #). Legitimate companies and employers will never ask you for this information.
If you have any questions or have concerns about any email being sent to you, please give us a call at (916) 691-7470 or email us: crc-careercenter (at) crc [dot] losrios [dot] edu
