Security and Phishing

Candidates' security & phishing

Multiple fraud attempts using the Adecco name have been reported in several countries. Please be aware that NO Adecco representative will ever request payment of any kind from a candidate or an associate during a job search or a selection process.

We have been informed that the ADECCO name and trademark are being used in several countries by persons who are in no way related to the Adecco Group. These persons place job adverts on general market websites using the name ‘Adecco’ without our permission. We also have reason to believe that e-mails, letters, telephone calls and other actions taken by these persons are nothing but illegitimate attempts to obtain money and access to job seekers’ personal and confidential information.

Wir wurden darüber informiert, dass der Name und die Marke ADECCO in mehreren Ländern von Personen verwendet werden, die in keiner Weise mit der Adecco Group in Verbindung stehen. Diese Personen schalten ohne unsere Zustimmung Stellenanzeigen auf allgemeinen Jobbörse-Webseiten unter dem Namen „Adecco“. Wir haben auch Grund zu der Annahme, dass E-Mails, Briefe, Telefonate und andere Handlungen dieser Personen nichts anderes sind als unrechtmäßige Versuche, Geld zu machen und Zugang zu persönlichen und vertraulichen Informationen von Arbeitssuchenden zu erhalten.

At the moment we are aware of multiple fraud cases using the Adecco name in Canada, France, Ghana, Hong Kong, Italy and in the USA.
