Certas Energy are the latest to be targeted by an email scammer claiming to work for the company and offering people fake offers of employment.
The scammer is offering people fake jobs with the company in return for money to secure work visa’s and permits
The recruitment team at Certas Energy are concerned about the impact this is having on people especially if they are sending money to the individual:
“We are really concerned that people may think these offers are real and send money to the individual. We receive calls and emails each month from vigilant people unsure as to whether they are being employed by us or not and whether to send the money. We would advise anyone who is unsure to contact the recruitment team at Certas Energy at recruitment@Certasenergy.co.uk or call 0345 600 6890.”
The scammer is making offers without individuals having had an interview so an easy way to know if the offer is real:
1, If you haven’t been interviewed by a manager at Certas Energy on one of our sites its likely to be fake and
2, If the offer email doesn’t end @certasenergy.co.uk again its likely to be a fake offer.
We take the actions of this individual really seriously and are doing everything we can here to stop the scam.
