Important Information About Recruitment Scams and How to Spot Them
Thank you for your interest in a career at Zipwhip. We’re excited to learn more about you.
We’ve been made aware of instances where individuals not associated with Zipwhip have impersonated Zipwhip employees and pretended to be involved in the Zipwhip recruiting process in an attempt to gain personal information and/or funds from applicants. We want to share more information on what our hiring process does and does not look like so that you can better spot and avoid a scam attempt.
- Valid Zipwhip email addresses end only in @zipwhip.com. If you receive an email from any other address, it is not coming from a Zipwhip employee. Be careful to keep an eye out for addresses that look like our official one but are not, like email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Zipwhip will never ask you to provide funds for onboarding, supplies or anything else.
- We would never ask you to submit your personal information without you applying on our career site first. If someone is asking you to share details like your date of birth, passport details, banking information, social security number, etc. but you have not submitted an official application through our careers site, this is likely a fraud attempt.
- We typically conduct all of our interviews and job offer calls over Zoom. We do not use Google Hangouts, WhatsApp or other third-party communications platforms for interviews or job offer calls.
- Only Zipwhip’s CEO has the authority to extend an offer of employment on behalf of Zipwhip. All Zipwhip offers will include a formal offer letter and authentic signature of Zipwhip’s CEO, however please note that we have had fraudulent offers that include fake CEO representation. Please be sure to consider the other items here.
- Our hiring process usually takes several weeks. We do not make job offers after only one interview.
- With perpetrators of recruitment fraud, there is usually an insistence on urgency to get a candidate hired. Zipwhip employees will never place undue urgency on candidates.
If you believe you have been the victim of an imposter or want to confirm that the person you are communicating with is a legitimate Zipwhip employee, please contact email@example.com or text (206) 800-1380. You can also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.
