Recruitment Fraud Notice

We are aware of an online recruitment scam in South America that uses Bennett Jones’ name to obtain money and personal information from individuals seeking employment with the firm’s Washington DC office.

The scam apparently lures individuals through on-line job listings and/or emails to apply for positions with Bennett Jones in Washington DC. Applicants are invited to contact Bennett Jones’ representative in Colombia to apply. Fees and personal information are requested from the applicant to proceed. This is a fraud—Bennett Jones does not have a representative in Colombia or in any country in Latin America, and is not conducting a recruiting campaign in Latin America.

If you receive an unsolicited or suspicious email regarding employment at Bennett Jones do not respond to it.

Anuncio fraudulento de contratación

Estamos al tanto de una estafa de contratación por internet en Sudamérica que utiliza el nombre de Bennett Jones para obtener dinero e información personal de las personas que buscan empleo en la oficina de Washington D. C. de la empresa.

Aparentemente, la estafa atrae a las personas por medio de listados de trabajo por internet o correos electrónicos para que soliciten puestos de Bennett Jones en Washington D. C. Se invita a los solicitantes a ponerse en contacto con el representante de Bennett Jones de Colombia para solicitar el trabajo. Al solicitante se le pide una tarifa e información personal para proceder. Se trata de una estafa: Bennett Jones no posee ningún representante en Colombia ni en ningún otro país de Latinoamérica, ni se encuentra realizando una campaña de contratación en Latinoamérica.

Si recibe un correo electrónico no solicitado o sospechoso relacionado con un empleo en Bennett Jones, no responda.
