Recruitment Fraud Alert
Notice to candidates: Please be aware of recruiting scams.
WHAT IS RECRUITING FRAUD?
Recruitment fraud involves scammers who impersonate Freenome and post fraudulent job openings on external websites. These individuals sometimes even conduct video interviews and extend phony job offers in an attempt to obtain personal information or money from job applicants.
HOW TO IDENTIFY RECRUITMENT FRAUD?
You can identify a recruiting scam by keeping a lookout for some of the following telltale signs of a fake email or text message:
- The communication makes an early and usually urgent request for your personal information.
- The communication requests you pay an application fee, provide a deposit for your work laptop, or otherwise request money.
- The communication contains typographical and grammatical errors.
- An email correspondence is sent from an address that is different from the “@freenome.com” format.
- The text message is from an unfamiliar mobile telephone number instead of an official company number.
Please note that Freenome will never ask candidates or new employees to pay for their work equipment or training and does not charge or accept job seekers’ security deposits during the recruitment process.
Any official communication originating from Freenome will always be in the @freenome.com format
- Freenome never requests fees for any purpose during or after the hiring process and will never ask for money for the opportunity to apply or work.
- We correspond only from email addresses with the domain “@freenome.com” NOT “@free-nome.com,” “freenomeinc.com,” or other variants.
- The Freenome team does not request or require personal documents like bank account details, tax forms, or credit card information as part of the recruitment process.
- Our recruitment process usually takes several weeks. Any communications you receive that appear to create unreasonable urgency are likely fraudulent.
If you believe you have been a victim of recruitment fraud, we urge you to file a report with the authorities at ftc.gov/complaint.
