As you conduct your job search, please beware of the possibility that scam artists may post fraudulent job openings or send fraudulent communications regarding potential jobs in an attempt to encourage the job seeker to disclose financial or personal information. You should always conduct research to ensure a posting is legitimate and you should never provide personal or financial information unless you are certain that the request is legitimate.
Warning signs for identifying fraudulent communications about potential jobs:
- The communications you receive are unprofessional – they contain poor grammar and/or typos.
- Emails or other communications are not sent from a BD, CareFusion or Bard address. Please note that legitimate emails end only with a “@carefusion.com”, “@bd.com” or “crbard.com” extension.
- You are asked to participate in a job interview online through an instant messaging application. Please note that BD, CareFusion or Bard does not conduct job interviews through instant messaging services.
- You are asked to provide financial information such as a credit card number or bank account information. Please note that BD, CareFusion and Bard will never ask a job applicant or a new hire to make payments or provide financial information such as credit card or bank account information.
- The description about the position is vague or unclear, with little to no detail about the job requirements or responsibilities.
- The offer seems too good to be true.
