What is recruitment fraud?

Recruitment fraud is a sophisticated scam offering fictitious job opportunities. This type of fraud is normally perpetrated through online services such as bogus websites, or through unsolicited e-mails claiming to be from the company.

How can I identify recruitment fraud?

  • There is an early request for personal information such as address details, date of birth, résumé, passport details and bank details etc.
  • E-mail correspondence appears to be sent from an officer or senior executive of the Company, often the CEO, Board of Directors or Human Resources. If the email doesn’t end in “”, it’s most likely phony.
  • Frequently, mobile or platform telephone numbers beginning in +44(0)70 are used.
  • There is an insistence of urgency.

What shouldn’t I do if I receive a fraudulent job offer?

  • Do not respond to unsolicited offers of employment from people you are not familiar with, or were introduced to during the interview process.
  • Do not disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know.
  • Do not send any money. IAMGOLD never asks for money transfers or payments from applicants to secure a job or visa to enter Canada or other countries IAMGOLD operates in.
