Over the past several days, many students have received emails offering job opportunities, and many are related to babysitting, child care, or note-taking. Students should not reply to these emails and should delete them immediately. Always be suspicious of unsolicited emails, especially if those emails ask for personal information.
Some examples of these attempts are included here for reference.

Hey Again Andrew – did you get the invitation, the first one? Maybe I missed your reply, but I didn’t see an application.
If you want to earn around $500 per class by taking notes and uploading them to StudySoup, spend 3 mintes and justapply now.
