Be Aware: Handshake Scams

We have been contacted by a couple of students who were concerned by emails they had received from an Ohio State email address. The sender stated they work for Handshake and were offering part time jobs or internships to qualified students. Unfortunately, there have been a few occasions where Ohio State emails have been compromised through a phishing attack and then utilized to send fraudulent emails to students. We want all of our students to be very wary of these types of emails and take extra caution.
