***JOB SCAM ALERT***

We have recently become aware that individuals not associated with Jack Morton have fraudulently used our name – and the names of some of our employees – to solicit applications for fake jobs, to conduct fake job interviews and to make fake job offers.  Any request to schedule an interview and any bona fide offer of employment will only come from an authorized representative of Jack Morton with an email address “@jackmorton.com”.  We will never require an applicant to provide credit card or banking information to cover any supposed advance costs.

If you have provided personal information in connection with a fake job offer or interview and you are concerned, we suggest that you take appropriate action.

Jack Morton takes these activities very seriously and are taking appropriate steps to shut down this fraudulent activity.

We urge you to be careful when sharing your personal information and to be aware of scams involving fake job postings and job offers.
