Warning to Hunter students and Faculty: Public Safety recently became aware of an internet scam where the web site, or e-mail, appears to be another Hunter member asking you to become a "secret shopper". In this scam the unknown person would mail you a check  and request that you deposit it and immediately go out and purchase a certain gift card or product and mail it back to them. Within two days after depositing the check that was mailed to you the bank will contact you to say that the check was worthless or insufficient funds. Please be aware of these various internet scams.

Using Your OneCard (Hunter ID) at Hunter

This is a friendly reminder from the Office of the Dean of Students regarding Hunter College's policy on using your OneCard while on campus at Hunter College. These measures are in place for your own safety and that of the Hunter community.

  1. All members of the college community are responsible for having their Hunter OneCard with them while on campus at all times.
  2. Your Hunter OneCard is non-transferrable and may not be used by any other person, for any reason.
  3. Allowing other persons to use your Hunter OneCard to gain entry on to Hunter's campus or to use campus facilities is a violation of Hunter College's policy and may result in that person receiving a summons for Trespassing.
  4. Improper use of your Hunter ID may also result in your card being deactivated.

For more information about the One Card, please visit the One Card website.



What You Can Do

If you become the victim of a stalker, do not take it lightly. There are some initial precautions you can take:

  1. Notify the Campus Public Safety Department. Even if the problem is not college related they can assist you in reporting the problem to the proper law enforcement agency and in applying for a restraining order. If you already have an order, file a copy with the Department of Public Safety.
  2. Document everything. Even if you have decided not to go the legal route, you may change your mind. Keep answering machine tapes, letters, gifts, etc. Keep a log of drive-bys or any suspicious occurrences.
  3. Tell the stalker “no” once and only once, and then never give him/her the satisfaction of a reaction again. The more you respond, the more you teach him/her that his/her actions will elicit a response. This only serves to reinforce the stalking.
  4. Have co-workers screen all calls and visitors.
  5. Don’t accept packages unless they were personally ordered.
  6. Destroy discarded mail.
  7. If you think you are being followed in your car, drive to the nearest police station, or to a friend’s house, never home.
  8. Never be afraid to sound your horn to attract attention.
  9. Don’t be ashamed and think you caused this somehow. Instead, tell everyone you know that you’re being stalked, from neighbors and co-workers to classmates, so that when the stalker approaches them for information about you, they will be alerted not to divulge anything and will let you know that he’s been around.
