Internet Advice for College Students – Be Careful with Credit and Job Applications

If you see a credit offer or a job posting online, you can complete an application or send in a resume. However, don’t respond if it asks you for your social security number or bank account information. These can be provided later after you have established contact by phone, or mail, or in-person with the companies and have verified that they are legitimate. Otherwise, you could be providing personal information that could result in the draining of your bank account or the stealing of your identity.
