Recruitment Fraud FAQs
Recruitment Fraud is a rising trend impacting both job applicants and employers. Here are a few tips to help you stay safe during your job search.

What is Recruitment Fraud?

Recruitment fraud is high-level scheme in which an applicant is offered a fictitious job. Scammers create fake job opportunities using misappropriated company logos, fake communications from senior leadership, and details to give the appearance of a legitimate email. At times this can include fraudulent job postings that attempt to obtain money and Personal Identifiable Information (PII).

How do I identify Recruitment Fraud?

  • Fraudulent job offers often ask for financial or personal information early in the process. Altice does not ask for any financial contribution from a candidate at any stage of the recruitment or hiring process.
  • A fraudulent offer may ask you to purchase items with a promise of reimbursement – Altice will not require any such request.
  • To make the scam more believable, the email address will use the name of a legitimate company, however, with a missing element. Look for misspellings or additional letters added.

How do I know if it is a legitimate Altice Recruiter?

  • Altice recruiters will never ask for Personal Identifiable Information (PII) or financial contributions. While a recruiter may reach out/respond initially on social media platforms, all communication will be directly through a recruiter once you are under consideration.
  • Any legitimate email from an Altice recruiter/Human Resources will have a signature line with the sender’s name, title, and contact information.

Who do I contact if I have been a victim of recruitment fraud?
