Recruitment Fraud

It has come to our attention that various individuals and organizations are contacting people offering false employment opportunities in Castrol. Such false employment opportunities are obviously not operated by Castrol and therefore we cannot be responsible for any actions you may have taken, (including any costs that you may have incurred), in relation to any such false employment opportunities.

However, we are taking this matter extremely seriously, and we are currently working with the appropriate legal authorities to terminate this fraudulent scheme. By making you aware of this, we hope to avoid and ultimately stop victims falling for this scam.

What is Recruitment Fraud?

Recruitment fraud is a sophisticated fraud offering fictitious job opportunities. This type of fraud is normally done through online services such as bogus websites, or through unsolicited e-mails claiming to be from Castrol. These emails request recipients to provide personal information and ultimately payments to progress false applications.

How to Identify Recruitment Fraud?

The perpetrators will often ask recipients to complete bogus recruitment documentation, such as application forms, terms and conditions of employment or visa forms. The Castrol name and logo is often featured on the documentation without authority.

What Should I Do?

DO

We would advise you to contact your local police and provide them with all information you may have from the senders 

Save messages from the perpetrator for further investigation if necessary.

DO NOT

Respond to unsolicited business propositions and/or offers of employment from people with whom you are unfamiliar 

Disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know 

Send any money. Castrol does not ask for money transfers or payments from applicants to secure a job, either as an employee or as a contractor.

Engage in further communication if you believe the communications may be fraudulent.

Lottery Fraud

We are also aware of another fraud involving an online lottery. Please note that Castrol does not run such a lottery.

If you have been notified that you have won a large sum of money in an online prize lottery you should assume that this notification is fraudulent.

Lottery frauds are obviously not operated by Castrol and therefore we cannot be responsible for any actions you may have taken, (including any costs that you may have incurred), in relation to any such lottery fraud.

However, we are taking this matter extremely seriously, and are passing all information relating to these frauds to the legal authorities for appropriate action.
