Candidate Security & Phishing

Candidate Security & Phishing

Repeated fraud attempts using the Adecco brand have been reported in several countries. Please note that NO Adecco representative will ever solicit any payment from a candidate or temporary employee during the job search or selection process.

We have been informed that the Adecco name and trademark is used in some countries by persons who are in no way affiliated with the Adecco Group. These persons place job advertisements on general advertising websites using the Adecco brand without our permission. We also have reason to believe that the emails, letters, phone calls and other actions of these persons are merely illegal attempts to obtain money and access to personal and confidential information of job applicants.

We are now aware of repeated cases of fraud using the Adecco brand in Canada, France, Ghana, Hong Kong, Italy and the USA.
