Recruiting Scams

Please be aware that unauthorized parties may attempt to use the Metabolon name and logo, as well as the names of Metabolon employees, in emails and on websites to solicit up-front fees or to gather personal information from interested parties. These fraudulent recruiting scams may be in the form of phony job ads, job applications and offer letters that are used to convince job hunters to pay advanced fees, such as placement or processing fees, and/or submit personal information, such as social security numbers, birth dates and bank account information.

Cyber criminals may post their ads on legitimate job sites and often use familiar-looking or convincing company logos, language and links to fake websites that appear to be those of real organizations. These criminals might also seek fees for services they will never render.

During the initial recruiting process, Metabolon will not require the disclosure online, or by email, telephone or fax, of non-work related personal information such as a social security numbers, credit card numbers, dates of birth or bank account information. Metabolon also does not seek up-front fees from either prospective employees or contractors. 

Emails to applicants that originate from Metabolon will end with “@metabolon.com.”  Emails that do not end with “@metabolon.com” are not from Metabolon, Inc.
