Overseas fraudsters and scammers can impersonate a company's email address in an attempt to gain access to your personal information, including bank account details, and to fraudulently conduct business with others. We've been alerted to a few people impersonating our employees and conducting fake interviews as WebFX over Skype, via email, various messaging apps, and third party employment sites.
While WebFX conducts much of the hiring process virtually at the moment due to Covid-19, please note that we will only contact you via verified webfx.com email addresses for email correspondence, sending calendar invites, and video conferencing.
If you have received correspondence from someone claiming to represent WebFX or WebpageFX, be aware that:
- WebFX DOES NOT hire outside agencies
- WebFX DOES NOT conduct any employment interviews or business over Skype chats, Google hangouts, or direct messages.
- WebFX DOES NOT use generic email addresses (such as outlook.com, hotmail.com, or gmail.com) to communicate whatsoever.
- WebFX NEVER asks for bank details or to open new accounts or wire money.
When in doubt, only reply to @webfx.com email addresses, and don't hesitate to verify with us who you are communicating with. To do this, or if you have any other questions, please contact fraud [@] webfx.com for more information
If you’ve received messages or emails that look like the examples below, please know that they are part of this fraudulent scheme.
