Recent incidents of job offer and recruitment fraud have been reported and brought to the attention of our company and local authorities. Ledcor takes great pride in our ethical and fair hiring practices, and we take matters of recruitment fraud very seriously.
Persons pretending to be recruiters or hiring managers on behalf of Ledcor are committing a crime. Persons contacted by such criminals and being offered fraudulent jobs are victims.
Criminals engaging in fraudulent job offers will falsify their identities, using Ledcor-branding and posing as Ledcor employees to initiate false job opportunities to work on Ledcor projects in Canada or the United States. These offers are usually sent via email or direct messaging applications. They advise victims that they have either been hired by Ledcor or may obtain employment with the Ledcor Group of Companies 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 or licenses to a fictitious company email or website. These are not legitimate Ledcor job offers and are fraudulent
. If you receive a job offer that involves the payment of fees it is not legitimate. If you receive such an offer, you should contact our offices at email@example.com
and also contact your local police law enforcement to report this criminal activity.
Please be aware that Ledcor will never request fees
and copies of passport documentation for securing positions with our company. All individuals must apply directly online at www.jobs.ledcor.com
in order to be considered for a position. All individuals who are successful in gaining an invitation to interview or an offer of employment from Ledcor will receive communications originating from a verified Ledcor email address (legitimate Ledcor email addresses always end in "@ledcor.com
.") and not from an Internet email address e.g.: Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, etc. or any other domain.
Signs that the Offer is Fraudulent
What Should I Do?
- An email is written with "Ledcor" using a different format than @ledcor.com
- The contact information in the form is a mobile phone number, direct messaging app, social media platform, or post office box
- There is a sense of urgency with recurrent and persistent contact from the person
- Victims of job offer fraud are instructed to submit payment in order 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 asked to forward confidential information such as photocopies of passports or visa/immigration cards early in the application process
- Do not respond to unsolicited business propositions and/or job offers from people or e-mail addresses you do not know or trust
- Do not respond to job offers for positions that you have not applied for directly at www.jobs.ledcor.com
- Do not disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know or trust or on a website you do not trust. Should you have disclosed this information to somebody you do not know or to a website you do not trust, consider reporting the incident to your local law enforcement
- Be on the lookout for suspicious signs – e.g. communications from non-Ledcor email addresses (e.g. from a Yahoo.com or Gmail address) or direct messages on social media or messaging apps; poor use of English; requests for money; spelling errors or different versions of the entity ‘Ledcor Group of Companies’
- If you experience any of the above, please treat the communication as fraudulent and forward it to Ledcor’s attention at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the communication you have received from the perpetrator in your email to us
Ledcor’s name and identity is being used fraudulently in these instances. As much as we sympathize with anyone who has lost money in this way, Ledcor cannot accept any responsibility.
