Recruitment Fraud Alert
There has been a significant increase in the cases of recruitment fraud schemes globally where individuals are contacting job seekers claiming to represent Husky TechnologiesTM. These fraudulent activities may include but are not limited to; employment offers, interview invitations, or asking for payments to cover a range of expenses or relocation costs.
This type of fraud is normally carried out through digital platforms such as false websites, social media accounts, or unsolicited emails claiming to be from Husky TechnologiesTM. The fraudsters often request recipients to provide personal information and to make payments as part of their fake recruitment process.
How to Recognize Fraudulent Recruitment Activity and Communications
Husky TechnologiesTM takes such fraudulent activity very seriously, and one of the ways to combat these scams is to provide information about our recruitment process to ensure potential job seekers can validate the legitimacy of the message or request. The following provides information to help you detect the potential of fraudulent activity and determine whether something you see is actually from Husky TechnologiesTM or instead is a counterfeit or otherwise fraudulent communication.
Such fraudulent requests may include red flags, including items such as:
- The email is not sent from a @husky.ca domain name.
- The email requests payment of a visa or immigration fee in exchange for the opportunity to obtain a job offer or employment in an international location.
- The email requests account information (e.g. account numbers, usernames, passwords, etc.)
- The job posting asks you to apply directly to an email address that appears to be a personal rather than a Husky TechnologiesTM (@husky.ca) email domain
- Insistence on urgency including being able to relocate at short notice.
- Job posting does not appear on the Husky TechnologiesTM Careers page.
Job applications are only accepted through our applicant tracking system and our recruitment team will not ask you to provide any personal information such as a social security number, SIN, bank account numbers, passport information, birth certificate, financial institution, driver’s license number, or passport information over the phone or via e-mail. If you are a victim of identity theft contact your local police department and report the activity. Husky TechnologiesTM will never ask for any financial commitment from a candidate as a pre-employment requirement.
