Signs of a Recruiting or Money Scam
Scammers advertise jobs that look like the real thing through job boards and other advertisements. Look for these important signs that a posting may be a scam.
- Check the email address origin. DynCorp International recruiters, team members and personnel have an email address ending in @dyn-intl.com. Any point of contact that does not have that email address origin is not a part of the DI recruiting team. Scammers will try to make very similar email address domains, so make sure to check that it is only from a @dyn-intl.com address. If you see an email address or website ending in .net, .in, .org or one that looks like these real life examples:
- These listed above are all fake! Remember, all official DI email addresses will end in @dyn-intl.com
- Requests for placement fees to speed up the hiring process. If you are contacted by anyone offering a job with DynCorp International, you will never be asked to pay a fee for recruiting.
- A communication requests money in exchange for guaranteed employment. Any communication requesting any amount of money in exchange for employment with DI is a scam. DI and its family of companies never charges candidates fees or payments of any kind in order to secure employment.
- A communication requests payment as a fee for certification, training materials or other work-related expenses. DI does not require payment for any materials as part of its recruiting process.
- Requests for tax, bank account or credit card information. DI recruiters do not require the completion of tax forms such as a W-4, bank account or credit card information as part of the recruiting process. As a precaution, we recommend you do not give out personal or financial details to anyone as a response to an unsolicited email request.
- Offers work at home opportunities. DI does not currently offer any work at home opportunities.
- Poor English, grammar, and spelling. Official DI recruiters will send all communications from an official DI email address, use proper American English, and will never ask you for money.
Dating site scams are also on the rise
Scammers steal identities on social networking sites like Facebook and Instagram and pose as someone else, sometimes even DI employees. After posting pictures and stories to popular dating sites, the scammers reach out to people with accounts on that site and try to exploit them.
