Recruitment Fraud

Please be advised that fraudsters are operating globally and seeking to defraud you by making bogus offers of employment while presenting themselves as legitimate STATS Group recruiters. STATS Group takes this matter extremely seriously; by making you aware of this, we hope to avoid and ultimately stop victims falling for this scam.

Their typical approach is to tempt you with job offers, generally by email, involving international relocation and requesting payment in order to process visa or work permit applications. These individuals are criminals and are not representatives of STATS Group. STATS Group will never ask you for payment as part of any application for work.

How to identify recruitment fraud

  • The offer requests payment of any kind. STATS Group will never ask you for payment as part of any application for work.
