Recruitment Fraud

Recent incidents of recruitment fraud have been reported and brought to the attention of local authorities and our company. Ledcor takes great pride in our ethical and fair hiring practices and we are taking this matter very seriously.

Perpetrators engaged in fraudulent activity will claim they are under contract with Ledcor to facilitate the relocation of potential employees for work on Ledcor projects in Canada or the United States. These offers are usually sent via email and will typically advise victims they have either been hired by Ledcor 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 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, and you are asked to contact our offices at employmentfraud@ledcor.com.

Please be aware that Ledcor never request fees and copies of passport documentation for securing positions with our company.  All individuals who are successful in gaining an offer of employment from Ledcor, whether directly or indirectly, are always required to go through a formal recruitment process.  All communications should originate from a verifiable Ledcor e-mail address (legitimate Ledcor email addresses always end in "@ledcor.com.") and not from an Internet e-mail address e.g.: Hotmail, Yahoo etc.
 
Signs Of Recruitment Fraud
  • Any email written with "Ledcor" 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 a Ledcor office.
  • There is urgency and recurrent contact from the perpetrator.
  • 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?
  • 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 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 trust 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 e-mail addresses (e.g. from a Yahoo.com address); poor use of English; and requests for money.
  • If you experience any of the above, please treat the communication as fraudulent and forward it to Ledcor’s attention at employmentfraud@ledcor.com.
Please include the communication you have received from the perpetrator in your email.

Our Position

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.
