We have been made aware of attempted recruitment fraud wherein individuals impersonating Puma Biotechnology employees have made fraudulent offers of employment to job seekers. These fraudulent offers may include a request for job applicants to provide sensitive personal or financial information, or engage in fraudulent financial transactions as part of the application process.
Puma Biotechnology takes recruitment fraud seriously, and we are reporting known incidents to law enforcement authorities for investigation. Additionally, we would like to inform you about how to protect yourself from criminals engaging in this activity.
If you are unsure about the validity of a job posting, please contact Puma’s Human Resources department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you are applying for a job with Puma Biotechnology, we have a formal application process that requires completion of an online application in our Career Center and is accessed through the Puma Biotechnology website. A job opening that does not appear on Puma’s Career Center website is not likely to be legitimate.
- Puma does not communicate with candidates or request interviews via text message, Google Hangouts, or other instant messaging services. All email communications related to job opportunities are made by a Puma Human Resources team member using a “pumabiotechnology.com” email address.
- Puma never requires job applicants to pay money or purchase equipment as part of the job application process, and we do not request applicants to provide bank account, credit card, or other financial information.
If you believe you are a victim of recruitment fraud, we encourage you to take the following actions:
- File a report with your local law enforcement authority.
- File a report with the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).
- Contact the three major credit-reporting bureaus (Equifax, Experian, and Transunion) and request that a Fraud Alert be placed on your account.
