Recruiting Fraud Warning
It has come to our attention that targeted job postings that appear to be from Glassdoor.com and/or Indeed.com are being sent to individuals offering false employment opportunities with TRC. The intention of these postings is not to offer employment, but rather to steal personal and financial information from unsuspecting victims.
Many of the victims have been asked for personal identification information or have been sent checks that when cashed, would provide the sender with confidential banking information.
At TRC, we are saddened by this malicious behavior and are actively working to report these types of fraudulent schemes. We care about our community and by providing this information, we hope to stop future victims from falling for these scams.
How can you protect yourself from Recruitment Fraud?
The first thing you should look for is whether the email originates from a verified TRC email address. TRC employees conduct business and recruitment via “trccompanies.com” or “trcsolutions.com” email accounts only. You should verify all email contact with TRC and ignore any email that doesn’t have a “trccompanies.com” or “trcsolutions.com” address. We do not use other email extensions such as “Gmail” .
Additionally, TRC’s interviews are conducted via phone or in person. We typically do not conduct interviews through Google hangout or other third-party solutions as a part of the recruitment process.
How to Take Action?
Please contact TRC via email at the following address email@example.com to advise us that you are in receipt of fraudulent communications or that you have seen a fraudulent job posting. Please forward to us either the original email or a link to the posting.
Additionally, we recommend the following steps:
- Forward the same emails to the abuse addresses of the ISPs involved. For example firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
- If you came across a fraudulent job posting on your campus Job Board or Career Center, have the Career Center remove it immediately and let students know that that particular posting is fraudulent.
We do not recommend that you engage in any further dialogue if you believe the communication to be fraudulent.
We at TRC appreciate the hard work undertaken by all prospective job applicants and we want to encourage you to apply for legitimate job postings by our Company. We also value your personal information and wanted to make you aware that job counterfeiters and hackers are attempting to unlawfully gather this sensitive information. When in doubt, prior to applying, please email or give us a call—We would love to hear from you.
