FOX新闻:诈骗犯将目光锁定了大学生

 

燕山大学 刘立军 编写

 

u TRANSCRIPT

 

Hackers and scammers have found new ways to target college students.

 

Adam Levin, founder of Cyber-Scout, says one claims to be the IRS collecting tax on student loans. They are not taxed.

 

And watch out if you're looking for a part-time job: "Beware of any job opportunity where they ask you to give them money for upfront supplies or training, or hire you without an interview."

 

Levin says always follow this advice: "Never ever give out your social security information, banking or credit card data over the telephone to anyone unless you initiated the conversation and it is a legitimate contact for you."

 

Levin says there are even scams involving student loan forgiveness and voter registration. He says parents should even consider freezing college students' credit while they're in school.

 

I'm Ginny Kosola.
