There is currently an active phishing scam targeting job seekers with fake job offers from individuals purporting to be employees or recruiters working on behalf of Arcweb Technologies. If you have received an “interview request” or “job offer” from someone claiming to be an employee of Arcweb, you have likely been the victim of a scam.
If you suspect you have been a victim of this scam, please stop communicating with any supposed Arcweb representative immediately.
The fraudulent jobs listings have been posted to websites like LinkedIn, Indeed.com, and ZipRecruiter under titles such as “Software Developer”, “Project Manager”, and “Engineering Team.” We are currently working to ensure that these listings are removed and further postings are prevented.
The scammers are using the names and titles of actual Arcweb employees, and so it can be difficult to identify the communication as part of a scam. If you applied for an Arcweb Technologies position on any website other than our Careers page or Jobs microsite, you have likely been a target of the scammers and not involved in an actual Arcweb hiring process.
Legitimate Arcweb employees will never ask you to provide personal information or ID via email or telephone as part of any hiring process, and so under no circumstances should you provide any personal information to any recruiters, or make any purchases at their request. You should cease all further communication with these individuals, and under no circumstances should you click any links that they may have sent you.
If you have provided any personal information to a supposed Arcweb representative, or made any purchases at their request, we advise you to contact law enforcement to notify them that you may have been the victim of identity theft. You should also contact your bank or credit card provider and let them know your account may have been compromised, especially if you have made any purchases at their request. You should also contact your email provider — such as Gmail, Yahoo, or AOL — to alert them about the email address that was used in the phishing attempt.
If you have been a victim of this scam, we sincerely regret the discomfort, inconvenience, and grief this incident may have caused you, as well as the time it has wasted in your job search. We sincerely appreciate your interest in our company, and we encourage you to view our legitimate job postings on our official Careers site.
