Employment Recruitment Fraud Alert
Tyson Foods, Inc. is currently aware of two frauds that are being perpetrated on the public using the name of the company.
First, Tyson Foods, Inc. (“Tyson”) does not conduct employment recruitment through Craigslist.com and has reported activity being conducted under fraudulent Tyson website entities to the FBI. Tyson, like other reputable employers, does not request credit information from job applicants.
If you receive a request for personal information in an e-mail from anyone claiming to be a Tyson recruiter, DO NOT REPLY.
The second fraudulent scheme involves the scammer sending a check allegedly from Tyson Foods. The accompanying letter asks the recipient to cash the check; then, the scammer later asks for a refund of most of the check. The check is fraudulent and will bounce, and the recipient will lose any funds he or she returns to the scammer.
If you receive communication in either of these situations, please do the following:
- Forward any e-mail requesting personal information to email@example.com so that it may be sent to the FBI.
- DO NOT provide your credit information or any personally identifiable information (Social Security number or date of birth) by e-mail to anyone.
- DO NOT cash any checks allegedly from Tyson Foods that you receive unexpectedly. Call Tyson Security for instructions at 1-800-643-3410.
Tyson regrets that it has been targeted by unscrupulous individuals preying on legitimate job seekers and will do everything in its power to bring this fraudulent activity to an end.
