Recent incidents of recruitment fraud via unauthentic websites and emails have been brought to the attention of our company and reported to authorities. These recruitment communications are made without Cameco’s knowledge or approval. Cameco applies fair and ethical hiring practices and would never request fees and personal information from an employment candidate. If you receive an unsolicited employment email or see a suspicious job posting soliciting fees, these are not legitimate Cameco offers. We ask that you forward any concerns here.
What is Recruitment Fraud?
Perpetrators will claim they are Cameco employees recruiting potential employees for our company in Canada. These offers are usually sent via email and will ask for a fee to process the victim's employment papers, tender offers, job applications and typically advise victims they have either been hired by Cameco or may obtain employment with our work permits. Victims are usually requested to wire fees and copies of personal information such as passports to a fictitious company email address or website.
Signs of Recruitment Fraud
- Cameco emails always end in "@cameco.com." Any email styled with "Cameco" using a different format is not authentic.
- Perpetrators contact information is in the form of a mobile phone number or a post office box and not an actual Cameco office.
- The job offer appears to have a sense of urgency to it with repeated contact from the perpetrator.
- Victims are instructed to submit money to process their employment papers, tender offers, obtain work permits etc.
- Victims are asked to forward confidential information such as photocopies of passports or visa/immigration cards early in the application process.
What should I do?
If you experience any of the foregoing, please treat the communication as fraudulent and forward it to Cameco's attention here. Please include the communication you have received from the perpetrator in your email.
