A Warning About Recruiting Scams
Thank you for your interest in MedArrive. We encourage you to explore job opportunities at MedArrive and to review openings that are listed on our website. We also encourage you to be wary of internet, email and telephone scams in which fraudsters may try to take advantage of job seekers by pretending to represent companies like MedArrive. Intended victims may be invited to participate in bogus interviews, asked to fill out fabricated employment applications and, on occasion, have even been issued fake offer letters, all with the ultimate goal of trying to entice victims to pay money or divulge sensitive personal information.
This is an issue we take very seriously, and we work with the appropriate authorities on an ongoing basis to address it. By making you aware of these scams, we hope to avoid, and ultimately prevent, unsuspecting individuals from falling victim.
Here are a few things to watch for:
1) Communications that are unsolicited or unexpected, or are from an individual or website with which you are unfamiliar or whose domain name is inconsistent with that used by the actual business.
2) Messages from free email accounts, like Yahoo, Hotmail or Gmail. A MedArrive employee will not solicit candidates through a non-MedArrive email address.
- In addition, MedArrive does not utilize video chat rooms or messaging apps (e.g., Google Hangouts; WhatsApp, Telegram, or other third-party communication apps) to conduct interviews;
- Frequently, perpetrators of recruitment fraud will conduct the entire hiring process over email and will often ask candidates to complete bogus recruitment documentation, such as application forms, terms and conditions of employment, or visa forms. In these cases, the MedArrive name and logo may fraudulently be featured on the documentation.
- We’ve also found that recruitment scams can take place over text messaging. Perpetrators frequently use local presence dialing technology to mask their phone number, and have it appear as though it’s coming from somewhere in the United States when it is not.
3) Refuse any request that asks you to provide payment to participate in the hiring process (e.g., purchasing a “starter kit,” investing in training, or something similar). MedArrive will not ask you to pay any money at any point. In addition, any payments made by MedArrive will be from official firm accounts bearing the MedArrive name. Don’t trust checks from any other source.
- MedArrive will NEVER ask you for payment in exchange for being considered for a job or ask you to deposit a check into your personal bank account. We’ve found that in some cases of recruitment fraud, individuals may send candidates a check to deposit, then inform the candidates they have overpaid and will request a partial refund.
4) Communications that do not include information about a specific job opening (or the job description is vague) and/or extend a job offer without an interview.
- All jobs currently available are listed on the Careers page at MedArrive.com.
- Depending on the role, we typically like to have 2-4 interviews with candidates and at least one in-person, or video interview, before making the decision to hire.
- We will never ask you to contact third parties to complete your application or be considered for a job.
- In some instances of recruitment fraud, candidates may be requested to contact other companies/individuals such as lawyers, bank officials, travel agencies, courier companies, visa/immigration processing agencies, etc.
5) Communications at the application phase requesting your social security number, national insurance number, date of birth, bank account information, or other sensitive personal information.
