Recent incidents of recruitment fraud have been reported and brought to the attention of local authorities and our company. Enbridge takes great pride in our ethical and fair hiring practices and we are taking this matter extremely seriously. Please be aware that Enbridge and all our subsidiary companies never request fees and copies of passport documentation for securing positions with our company. These are not legitimate Enbridge job offers and are fraudulent. If you receive a job offer that involves the payment of fees it is a scam, and you are asked to contact our offices at email@example.com.
What is Recruitment Fraud?
Perpetrators engaged in fraudulent activity will claim they are under contract with Enbridge to facilitate the relocation of potential employees for work on Enbridge projects in Canada or internationally. These offers are usually sent via email and will typically advise victims they have either been hired by Enbridge or may obtain employment with our company for a fee to process the victim's employment papers, tender offers, job applications and work permits. Victims are usually requested to wire fees and copies of personal information such as passports to a fictitious company email address or website.
Signs of Recruitment Fraud
- Enbridge emails always end in "@enbridge.com." Any email styled with "Enbridge" using a different format is not authentic.
- Contact information is in the form of a mobile phone number or a post office box and not an Enbridge office.
- There is an insistence on urgency and repeated contact from the perpetrator.
- In fraudulent cases, victims are instructed to submit money to process their employment papers, tender offers, obtain work permits etc. and that they will be reimbursed for such fees once the initial job application and employment papers are processed. Victims are also asked to forward confidential information such as photocopies of passports or visa/immigration cards early in the application process.
What should I do?
If you experience any of the foregoing, please treat the communication as fraudulent and forward it to Enbridge's attention at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the communication you have received from the perpetrator in your email.
