🅰🅻🅴🆁🆃 – 𝗔𝗽𝗿𝗶𝗹 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟯

Dear Students,

I have placed this announcement on my official page to alert students who may be victims of an ongoing 𝙨𝙘𝙖𝙢.
If you recently received an email from a BMCC student advertising for a 𝙍𝙚𝙨𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙘𝙝 𝘼𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙩 position and asking you to kindly text Professor Benkarroum to proceed with the application, please protect yourself and do not reply to this message. Someone is using my identity to scam students. We have not announced any such thing. The phone number they provided is not mine.
If you contact them, you will be either asked to provide your bank account to get paid or you will be requested to pay $700 to process your application. Please stay away from them.

Recent Update:
If the scammer sends you a check to pay for the supplies you will need, please do not deposit it into your bank account. The check is fake.
It has come to my attention that a student is currently in trouble because he has deposited the fraudulent check into his bank account.
𝙉𝙤𝙩𝙚: If you have been targeted by a scam, you should file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on its website or by calling (877) 382-4357.

Best regards,
Younes Benkarroum
