What are Recruitment Scams?

Recruitment scams are a form of fraud where individuals posing as recruiters or employers offer interviews and employment opportunities as a way of obtaining personal and/or financial information from a job seeker, to use in identity theft. Fraudulent recruitment activity is becoming more sophisticated and may apply to a range of scenarios. Scammers may use fake websites, calls or texts, claiming to be from an employing company. This type of fraud can also be perpetrated through otherwise legitimate online job websites.
Unsuspecting applicants may be invited to participate in fraudulent interviews (via phone, text, or apps), complete fraudulent employment paperwork and/or receive fake offer letters.
Be wary of emails, calls, or texts from suspicious sources, and do not download messaging apps for any type of communication. Perpetrators may ask for completion of fake interviews and documents, such as job applications or visa forms, to obtain personal information.
Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has been advised of fraudulent postings. Wyndham condemns such fraudulent activity and takes this issue very seriously. Below is information to help identify recruitment fraud and some steps you can take to protect yourself.


Warning Signs of Scams:

Beware of job postings and correspondence that:

  • Use unofficial communication channels such as personal email addresses or messaging apps. Wyndham does not communicate with any potential job applicants through these web-based personal email services or messaging apps.
  • Include multiple spelling and grammatical errors in the posting or email/text communication.
  • Request payment for processing fees, visas, or travel expenses.
  • Involve payment of fees and a sense of urgency to act quickly on communications.
  • Ask you to download a messaging app for communication and/or interviews. Wyndham will never require you to download an app as part of the application process.
  • Lack specific job details or provide vague job descriptions.
  • Request personal information such as social security number, date of birth, banking information, passport number or any number appearing on personal identification documents.
  • Extend job offers without a proper interview process.
