ATTENTION ALL STUDENTS!!! Fraudulent Employer Scam
It has come to our attention that an employer listed on HireMason is engaging in fraudulent activities directed at students who applied to their internship posting. We heard from students who received an offer from Pershing LLC in March. No interviews were conducted, yet students received a job offer by email. Some of the students recently received a cashier’s check with instructions to deposit the check, keep a percentage, and send the balance to an address provided.
THIS IS A SCAM. No reputable company or organization will ask you to do something of this nature. Please do NOT cash the check.
If you have been contacted by Pershing, LLC we urge you to come in to the School of Business Career Services office immediately. You may also want to contact the local police. Please email Kerry Willigan, Director – School of Business Career Services, with questions/comments/concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
