Latest Phish targeting students–3/12/2019

Beware what looks too good to be true–easy money. How this works is pretty straight-forward.  Once the communication begins between the two of you more information will be asked.  Things like SSN and bank numbers will be needed to deposit money.  The funds will be far beyond your pay range to cover costs of some items.  What happens next is your bank account will be cleaned out and your money will be gone and untraceable. Never respond to email or phone job offers. If they can not identify themselves with how they got your contact information and your resume then block them and report it to security[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

Her is the latest students are receiving in their Wesleyan Gapps accounts—-

I am Michael Richie and I work as a clinical counselor for the department of Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES). I provide individual and group therapy, coaching, assessment and academic screenings to support students with disabilities (physical, chronic, psychiatric, and invisible) registered with DRES. A large percentage of the students served by the mental health unit have psychiatric disabilities or co-morbid psychiatric disabilities and need mental health support to be successful at the university. In addition, many University students with academic difficulties and no prior diagnosis are seen and assessed through the academic screening and assessment process. I’m also the director of supervision, training and coordination of counseling psychology and clinical psychology graduate students of the United States who have practicums at DRES and APA-accredited school psychology predoctoral interns. You have received this email because you have an offer from the University Office for Students with Disabilities to work with me while we help Students with disabilities frustrated with ignorance and lack of services but as my temporary personal assistant.
