It has come to our attention that individuals and/or organizations have used mining company names in fraudulent recruitment advertising and email communications.
A fake/fraudulent recruitment offer is an attempt to obtain cash or personal information from victims by offering jobs that do not exist. These scams are conducted via the internet using fake company websites and/or by sending unsolicited emails purporting to be an employee from a company careers site. The scammers request personal data and/or cash on the pretext that this is to finalize the fake employment opportunity.
