The college years offer many new and exciting opportunities for our students: the first time living away from home, managing their own money, renting an apartment, and applying for a job. Unfortunately, as they learn to navigate these many firsts, vulnerable students are often targeted by scammers who steal their personal information and money. The financial and emotional toll of these scams can adversely impact student success and retention. This workshop will explore how and why scammers target students, the psychology of how sophisticated scams work, and how student affairs professionals can support students who were victims of scams.
