We have become aware of an increased risk in recruitment fraud, whereby outside organizations are contacting people to offer them false employment opportunities with Thurber Engineering Ltd. These illicit employment offers are intended to steal information and money from their recipients. Please do not provide any personal or financial information to the originators of suspicious offers of employment.
If you are contacted by someone offering you a position with Thurber Engineering Ltd. whom you suspect is not authorized to represent us, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to verify the legitimacy of the offer. Legitimate offers of employment from Thurber Engineering Ltd. will always be preceded by a formal interview with one of our hiring managers and will be sent to selected candidates by an authorized internal Thurber employee.
The following tips may help you identify fraudulent recruitment:
- The email does not come from an official Thurber.ca email address. Fraudulent emails typically use an address from a free email service such as: Gmail, Outlook.com, Live.com, Yahoo, AOL, etc.
- You have not had a formal in-person interview with an authorized Thurber Engineering Ltd. representative.
- You are guaranteed a work-from-home position.
- Defrauders will often ask recipients to complete false recruitment documentation, such as application forms, terms and conditions of employment or visa forms.
- There is an early request for personal information such as address details, date of birth, passport details and photos, etc.
- Candidates are requested to contact other companies/individuals such as lawyers, bank officials, travel agencies, courier companies, visa/immigration processing agencies, etc.
- The defrauders may offer to pay a percentage of the fees requested and ask the candidate to pay the remaining amount.
- There is an insistence on urgency.
