Recruitment Fraud Information
Recruitment fraud is a sophisticated scam offering fake job opportunities to job seekers. This type of fraud is normally carried out through online services such as false websites or through fake e-mails claiming to be from the company. The fraudsters often request personal information, request job seekers deposit a check to pay for office equipment, or request monetary funds as part of their fake recruiting process.
If you are selected for an interview, SmartRecruiters will only contact you from a @smartrecruiters.com email domain. Be wary of look-a-likes including minor misspellings of our company name.
SmartRecruiters does not ask anyone to send or receive funds as a pre-employment requirement nor will you be asked to provide personal information outside of an application through our SmartRecruiters system. All jobs postings will start with the url: .
SmartRecruiters has no responsibility for fraudulent offers.
