An important reminder about recruitment scams


Employers and job seekers alike are seeing a rise in recruiting scams. Most notably, criminals are perpetrating elaborate ID-theft schemes by posing as fake recruiters, sometimes going so far as to conduct staged job interviews and make bogus hiring offers. Scammers are frequently approaching job seekers over platforms such as LinkedIn with enticing, but made-up, job offers ― ultimately obtaining the targeted job seekers' confidential information, including Social Security numbers and banking information.


As a reminder, Grant Thornton will only ask job seekers for confidential, personal information through official, secured platforms. Further, we will never use social media to request money or any form of payment, and we will only ask for private financial details after we have extended a formal job offer and after job seekers have enrolled in our secure on-boarding processes.
