Perkins Eastman is monitoring an increased frequency of recruitment fraud. Unscrupulous individuals are contacting job seekers and pretending to represent Perkins Eastman or specific persons at Perkins Eastman.
These fraudsters use emails, texts, letters, faxes, and phone calls to make false offers of employment with Perkins Eastman or to provide services related to employment (assistance in obtaining visa, travel arrangements, job training, proof of identity, etc.).
The offers, which appear to be legitimate and may use Perkins Eastman’s logo, often include specific details about a job description and related information such as salary, benefits, training, and a start date. The offers are often accompanied by requests for payment and/or sensitive personal information such as bank account information, credit card number, passport number, or other information that could be used to commit identity theft.
If you are seeking employment with Perkins Eastman, you should guard against recruitment fraud and pay close attention to these key facts:
- Neither Perkins Eastman nor our authorized third-party recruiting partners will ever ask for payments of any kind. Perkins Eastman does not collect personal banking, passport, visa, or other sensitive personal data as part of the recruitment process. You should never send money or personal details to anyone suggesting they can provide employment with Perkins Eastman.
