SCAM Warning – July 12, 2017
Please be advised that ARKRAY has fallen victim to an internet scam, known as spear phishing. The criminals have impersonated the identity of certain ARKRAY Human Resources Employees (both past and present) and opened a series of non-ARKRAY affiliated online email accounts, which they used to impersonate the ARKRAY employees. The criminals have created fake job postings and fake offers of employment on forged ARKRAY letterhead. They have also set up fake Skype job interviews to make the online application process seem legitimate.
It is important to note that these activities are all being performed by using NON-ARKRAY systems and that the data obtained to impersonate ARKRAY’s employees (past and present) can be easily found on social media sites such as LinkedIn. None of the fraudulent email activity resulted from ARKRAY-controlled systems.
The criminals are using the offers of employment with ARKRAY as a ruse to induce victims to disclose personal information as a condition of employment. The criminals request, among other things, social security numbers, passports, driver’s licenses, and bank accounts numbers. They have also requested victims to deposit money into bank accounts and then give the thieves access to that account. Lastly, the criminals are requesting the victims “buy” computer equipment with hopes of stealing the victims credit card numbers.
Please be advised that ARKRAY does not post positions or use websites connecting individuals that do freelance work with companies looking for such work. We have seen this scam on websites such as Upwork and Outsourcely, and there may be other websites as well.
Because of this scam, we recommend that job applicants only use ARKRAY’s website at: https://arkrayusa.applicantpro.com/jobs/ for legitimate ARKRAY job description openings and job application documentation.
This scam has been reported to the FBI and other law enforcement agencies for investigation.
