IMPORTANT NOTICE: WhatsApp Scams
We’ve received reports of fraudulent messages circulating on WhatsApp and Telegram, where individuals pose as recruiters from various companies, including PE Global. These scams involve fake job postings and attempts to extract personal information from recipients. This mirrors the tactics used in other scams where imposters mimic banks or service providers to acquire sensitive data.
We urge our candidates to remain vigilant as scammers might approach you with enticing job offers to obtain personal information or request payments.
Should you receive a message on WhatsApp or Telegram claiming affiliation with PE Global that seems suspicious, please take action by blocking the sender and/or reporting the scam to 7726, a free reporting service provided by phone operators.
