  • Be advised that there is a phishing scam circulating on campus offering employment as a personal assistant to professors. The offers award the “potential employees” with checks, but the checks are fraudulent. Visions Federal Credit Union has seen a number of these fraudulent checks recently, and has stopped them.

    Although the employment offers are sent primarily via email, the solicitor has, at times, continued the conversation through text messages. Be mindful and stay alert. If you have any doubts about the validity of a check you receive or any questions, bring your inquiries to the Visions branch office in the University Union for assistance.
