Fake Recruitment Campaigns and Job Scams

Sometimes the identity of ADNOC Distribution is used fraudulently in fake recruitment campaigns and false job offers. 

The fraudster will often set up a fake recruitment campaign email or website as if it is coming from ADNOC Distribution. Candidates will usually be asked to provide a CV or other information online or via email, and may be asked to do an online interview questionnaire.  There will usually be no face-to-face interview.An offer will be made supposedly from someone representing ADNOC Distribution.

The offer will tell you that you will need to pay sums of money either direct to the fraudster or to a third party for a visa, work permits, travel costs etc in order to accept the job. Sometimes the scam will say that you will be reimbursed these costs when you start work with ADNOC Distribution.ADNOC Distribution never selects candidates based on an online interview or questionnaire only. It will never ask a candidate to pay money in advance.

You can only apply for jobs at ADNOC Distribution via the careers portal found on https://careers.adnocdistribution.ae/en. People from ADNOC Distribution will only use email addresses ending @adnocdistribution.ae.

What Should I Do?

Always remember – if an offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Use your common sense:

• Do not respond to unsolicited recruitment offers from sources you cannot independently verify as being legitimate.
• Do not provide personal or financial details to anyone you do not know or trust, or on a website you do not trust. 
• Be alert for suspicious signs: 
- poor use of language; 
- use of e-mail addresses like yahoo.com, gmail.com, hotmail.com. ADNOC emails will only ever come from @adnocdistribution.ae;
- requests for money to be paid in advance;
- contact through social websites such as Facebook etc.
• Be suspicious when dealing with anyone who does not have a direct telephone line / who never answer when you call their number, but return your call later (from a different number).
• Always independently verify the legitimacy of job offers before you take any decision.

ADNOC Distribution maintains a professional LinkedIn account - all correspondence will always come from an @adnocdistribution.ae email address.

You can notify us of any suspected job scam by emailing info@adnocdistribution.ae, or to check if a job offer received is valid. Any CV’s submitted, vacancy enquiries, or any other kinds of enquiry, will not be reviewed and will not receive a response.

Consider if it is appropriate to notify local law enforcement in your area if you are the victim of an attempted scam.
