Here is a message from Shell regarding employment recruiting scams:

Take care to avoid fraudulent communications purporting to be on behalf of companies within the Shell Group. Find out what to do if you receive an email you think is fraudulent.

Recent incidents have occurred involving organisations falsely claiming to recruit on behalf of Shell. These organisations, claiming to either work for or be affiliated with Shell, notify individuals that their qualifications were found suitable to work as an employee (local or expatriate) for Shell and solicit the transfer of significant sums of money to pay for work permits, insurance policies, etc.

Please note that Shell does not (nor do any of the organisations that recruit on our behalf) ever ask for money or payments from applicants at any point in the recruitment process. All individuals who are successful in gaining an offer of employment from Shell, whether directly or indirectly, are always required to go through a formal recruitment process.

Please note that these communications are fraudulent. They do not originate from Shell nor are they associated with Shell's recruitment process.

Salient points of such communications are that they come from non-Shell e-mail addresses (e.g. from a yahoo.com address); the use of English is poor; and at some stage money is requested.

We recommend that you do not respond to unsolicited business propositions and/or offers from people with whom you are unfamiliar. Do not disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know. If you receive such proposals, we would advise you to contact your local police station and provide them with all information you may have from the senders (email addresses, phone/fax details, etc.).

Note: Some of the names, addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers in email samples on this website may have been impersonated.
