HUNTER COLLEGE–Phishing emails continue to bombard student inboxes with faux offers representative of a larger issue of spam emails nationwide.  

Email scams have existed for over 10 years at Hunter, but “in the past year and a half, it’s become a much bigger problem and is happening more often,” says Shayne Bernstein, associate director of Career Development Services. “We contacted IT and I know they are also aware of the scams, I don’t know what their course of action is,” says Bernstein.
