The UNC Department of Public Safety is looking into a possible check cashing scam.

DPS says multiple victims have recently contacted them about the scam.

Victims have been contacted through University email and Craigslist job postings with requests for babysitting or personal assistant work.

DPS is encouraging anyone receiving a check from a suspect who requests that they either deposit or cash the check and then send the suspect funds in return should contact the UNC Public Safety at (919) 962-8100.
