We have recently been made aware of a number of fraudulent emails circulating containing ‘job offers’ purporting to come from Penspen. The intention of these fraudulent offers may be to obtain personal information, or sums of money from those targeted. Any such communication has absolutely no connection with Penspen. We never ask candidates to make any up-front payment as part of their recruitment and selection process. Penspen will only directly offer you a role after a formal recruitment process has been followed.
If you are unsure whether a job advert or apparent job offer is genuine or not, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we will confirm whether or not the communication is legitimate. If you have been the victim of recruitment fraud or have received a fraudulent communication, we advise you to report the incident to the police or to Action Fraud, the UK’s national fraud reporting centre.
