Fraudulent Job Post and Email Alert – June 2016
Fraudulent job openings have been posted on job recruiting and social media sites websites by persons or entities posing as Global Response Corporation. Names are used that appear very similar to www.globalresponse.com, such as Global Response LLC, or globalsresponse.com. In other cases, emails impersonate actual employees, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org instead the correct format which ends in globalresponse.com.
Applicants responding to the fraudulent job posts have been receiving emails requesting personally identifiable information that could be used for identity theft. In some cases applicants have received small checks along with a request for bank account information to trick them into stealing your bank deposits. Some emails have requested pre-hiring payments. It’s easy to be deceived as the perpetrators emails may contain Global Response logos and images.
We never request banking, credit card, drivers’ licenses, age or address information from online job applicants. Likewise we never ask for money, charitable donations, or purchases to obtain a job. If you are applying for a job and receive a request for sensitive personal information DO NOT REPLY.
WE ONLY HIRE job candidates after an in-person interview at our Margate headquarters with our Human Resources team.
