Searching for jobs online can be tough, especially in today’s world, and scammers know this. Unfortunately, it’s common for online scams to take advantage of unsuspecting job hunters and get them to hand over personal information. It’s important to know the signs of an employment scam so you can keep your private information out of the wrong hands.
Here is what you should know about employment offers from Asurion:
- Legitimate emails will come from an “@asurion.com” address only; please check the spelling carefully
- We do not ask employees or potential employees to purchase equipment
- We do not ask for banking information to deposit money into a person’s account
How to spot fake ads and offers of employment:
- Scammers will post fake job advertisements on legitimate job sites such as ZipRecruiter, LinkedIn or similar sites; and
- Imposters may pose as a representative of a company, reaching out with unsolicited offers of employment.
Criminals are posing as fake “employers” to scam victims to provide them with personally identifiable information (PII), such as a copy of a driver’s license or bank account information, or to send them money. Please be wary of all such attempts.
To be considered for employment with Asurion, all applicants must apply for a role directly through careers.asurion.com. We encourage everyone to be vigilant and always doublecheck all unsolicited offers.
