Job Posting and Job Offer Phishing Scams, Impersonation of Recruiters
Sensor Tower is aware of incidents where criminals are using our brand to post fictitious job descriptions and make fraudulent job offers. In some cases, these individuals may ask for money, banking details, or other personally identifiable information.
These scams have become more sophisticated and can appear as legitimate recruitment activities and often appear through third party websites or direct email approaches.
This scam, or ‘recruitment fraud’ as it is known, is becoming increasingly common.
Sensor Tower takes recruiting fraud extremely seriously and is continually taking proactive measures to reduce it.
At no point will Sensor Tower ever ask prospects for money, credit card, or bank account information as part of its job application. Great caution should be taken when sharing personal information and we hope that by highlighting these developments, unsuspecting individuals will not be duped by these scams.
While Sensor Tower does post job listings on various job boards such as LinkedIn, Indeed, HackaJob, and some international job boards, Sensor Tower’s careers page provides the most secure portal for you to apply and enter your details as part of our standard recruitment processes.
Should you reach the interview stage, all Sensor Tower interviews are conducted via phone or Zoom. At no time will a conversation be moved to an alternative email outside of sensortower.com or text.
If you receive an offer of employment from Sensor Tower, please note that all such offers are discussed verbally with you and then sent electronically to your direct email address.
Be cautious of generic emails
Scammers try to cast a wide net by including little or no specific information. Always be wary of emails which seem overly generic.
Incorrect domain names or email addresses
Check for misspellings of Sensor Tower or non-Sensor Tower email addresses (i.e., gmail.com, yahoo.com). Sensor Tower approved emails will come from sensortower.com.
Request for financial information or payments
Sensor Tower recruiters will never ask prospective employees for payment to apply for a position or as a condition of employment.
The “perfect” job
A job posting which states extremely high compensation for a position that requires “no skills or experience,” seems too good to be true, and is likely to be fraudulent.
