Beware bogus recruitment emails claiming to be from Crew Clothing Co.
It’s come to our attention that people are being contacted with false job offers claiming to be from Crew Clothing. This is usually through unsolicited emails that ask for personal information, documentation or even money in exchange for processing a job application. This is a scam.
We take this very seriously and will be taking further action to prevent it. In the meantime, here’s how you can avoid becoming a victim.
How do I know if it’s a fraudulent email?
If you haven’t applied for a role at Crew Clothing
Crew Clothing never makes employment offers through unsolicited emails. If you get an email but haven’t applied for a job, it is fraudulent.
If the email isn’t sent from a genuine contact at Crew Clothing
Crew Clothing does not use web based email addresses such as gmail, ymail, live or hotmail. Genuine emails will be sent from email addresses ending @crewclothing.co.uk.
If you’re asked for inappropriate personal information
You may ask for personal information such as your address, CV, qualifications, passport number, bank details, etc. You should not disclose any personal or financial details to anyone you do not know. This information may be used for identity fraud.
If you’re asked for money
Crew Clothing never asks for money as part of the application process. A request to transfer funds is a sure sign of attempted fraud. Do not send money under any circumstances.
If they insist on urgency
Perpetrators will often demand urgent action. Make sure you take the time to stop and think.
What should I do?
Do not respond
If you’re in any doubt about the source of an email, do not respond. Contact the recruitment team on email@example.com and we will confirm if the email is fraudulent or not.
If you receive a fraudulent email, we’d be grateful if you could forward it to our recruitment team so we can investigate: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please do not alter the email in any way before sending it on.
