Reporting Email Scams
Several scams claiming to be from or associated with The Rockefeller Foundation and 100 Resilient Cities are currently circulating on the internet. They may include our logos, names of current Foundation and 100 Resilient Cities staff or executives, links, or other information taken directly from our official web sites, www.rockefellerfoundation.org and 100ResilientCities.org.
Neither 100 Resilient Cities nor The Foundation makes job offers via email or through Craigslist. If you receive a job offer via email or any other communication or request seemingly from the Foundation, 100 Resilient Cities, or someone claiming to work for either organization, that you feel is suspicious, please disregard that communication. All current 100 Resilient Cities position openings are listed on our Jobs page.
Here are some tips to help you avoid email scams:
- Be suspicious of unsolicited emails that ask for personal or financial information.
- Avoid filling out forms in email messages.
- Log on to official websites instead of clicking on links embedded in an email.
- Contact the organization that is supposedly sending the email to verify if it is genuine.
- Be wary if you receive an email saying you have been offered a job or are being awarded a grant.
- Be cautious if you are asked to wire money.
