Cvent has been made aware of candidates receiving fraudulent job opportunities and offers from recruiting agencies or people impersonating Cvent hiring managers. These fraudulent jobs may be promoted on social media sites (such as Facebook.com), and career sites such as Indeed.com, Monster.com, Careerbuilder.com, or mimic our careers site and company email addresses. The intent of recruitment fraud is to gain access to your personal information, such as contact information and banking/payment information and Social Security Number.
How to Spot Recruitment Fraud
Cvent does source candidates through referrals, social media, and university job boards, but these avenues are also vulnerable to fraudulent activity. We encourage job seekers to become aware of common signs of fraud.
- Requests for personal information early in the process including your address, date of birth, passport information, social security number, or banking details.
- Unsolicited messages from individuals not associated with Cvent contacting you about a job posting (even real ones). Please closely review the name of the sender and the domain name associated with their account. All official Cvent recruitment emails will come from accounts formatted as: email@example.com. Fraudulent domain names often try to mimic official accounts; e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Being asked to participate in an "interview" by chat or email. Cvent does not conduct "interviews" by chat or email.
- Attempting to make job offers through social media or online forums like Skype or Google Hangouts.
- Making job offers for jobs you haven't have applied to OR have not interviewed for.
- Urgently insisting you act immediately within a very short time frame. Using words like “URGENT” or “IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED”.
- Asking for money, such as to purchase your own equipment up front, or payment of a fee to process a job application.
- Poorly worded or grammatically incorrect communications and documentation.
If you believe a communication may be fraudulent, we strongly recommend that you don't respond, don't click any links, and don't give out any personal information. Send an email to HRHelp@cvent.com to report the incident, and include screenshots. If you're unsure a message is from Cvent, please email HRHelp@cvent.com to verify.
