Employment Phishing Scam

Posted on Thursday, July 11th, 2019

The Experiential Learning Hub has recently been informed that some members of the University of Guelph community have received the following email (or one of similar wording):

“Hello, I am delighted to inform you that Chazy Survey Services LLC.® is accepting applications for students who are willing to do part time job.

Please be advised that this email is not credible and our department has notified CCS. The grammatical errors along with the department name that does not exist at the University of Guelph are key indicators that this is a phishing scam and should be deleted immediately without clicking on the link.
