FRAUD ALERT – HIRING SCAM TARGETING NEWCOMERS
Attention: SODS staff, clients and stakeholders,
Recently a Saskatchewan man was charged for falsely impersonating several Canadian charities. He extended offers of employment to immigrants on behalf of these charities. He sold these letters to hopeful immigrants who believed they were securing legitimate job offers in Canada.
Similarly, we have been advised that recently a man going by the name of Brett Carter, has been impersonating as a recruitment staff from and for the Saskatoon Open Door Society on various popular job recruitment sites like Indeed.
We are monitoring this situation closely. Please contact someone immediately from our HR team at email@example.com to seek guidance on how and to whom to report any fake job recruitment incidents that might involve our organization.
We recommend for you to be cautious when receiving a too-good-to-be-true job offer from SODS, being asked or pushed to share right-away sensitive information like banking information or being asked to pay cash or cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin to get a job with us or someone else. SODS DOES NOT ASK for money to hire.
If you think you are potentially a victim of fraud, please visit the Saskatoon Police Services https://saskatoonpolice.ca/economic website to report the incident, and please also contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at https://www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca/report...
If you are approached by someone claiming to be a SODS representative and are feeling unsure, don’t hesitate to reach out to us through our social media channels or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
