 Tips to avoiding Cyber Fraud 

 

  1. Fraudsters contact students via social media (primarily Snap Chat or Instagram).
  • They may make a friend request.

They may offer a job.

The fraudsters make a pitch for the student to make easy money.

    • They offer the students a percentage of a e-transfer if the student will change it to bitcoins for them or gift cards.

 

 2. The money is then e-transferred to the student; however, the e-transfer does not come from the fraudster, but a third party, who thinks they are buying something and was given the students information to make the e-transfer to.

    •  
      •  
        • When the person does not get the product and it is reported to the police, it is traced back to the student, who must repay the money  and could face charges.
        • The fraudster is long gone with the untraceable bitcoins or gift cards.
    • They send the student a cheque and ask for a percentage back in bitcoins for them or gift cards

·   The student deposits it via online banking or a bank machine and it take several days to be identified as NSF, by which time the student has already withdrawn the cash.

    •  
      •  
        • The bank then takes the money out of the students account.
        • The fraudster is long gone with the untraceable bitcoins or gift cards.
