Phishing warning for all users

RecruitIreland.com is warning users both candidate and advertisers that fraudsters may target them with phishing emails requesting that they update their billing or profile information.

Phishing is the practice of sending bogus e-mails which appear to come from major companies (such as us) and carry links to bogus replica websites. The object of the scam is to lure you into parting with personal information such as usernames, passwords, CV or even bank account or credit card details under the pretence that you are dealing with us. You may have come across this before in relation to banks where you would get an email pretending to be from your bank asking for your online banking details, for example.

We will never send out an email asking you to provide any sensitive or personal information; we would never ask for your credit card details or bank details in an email. If you are in any doubt call us to confirm we have emailed you.

What should you do if you’ve received a scam RecruitIreland.com email?

  • Do not click on any links in the scam email.
  • Do not reply to the email or contact the senders in any way.
  • If you have clicked on a link in the email, do not supply any information on the website that may open.
  • Do not open any attachments that arrive with the email.

If you have already submitted personal details in response to a scam email, or any other scam email, contact RecruitIreland.com immediately. If you have submitted your password, username, account details, or other sensitive information as a result of a phishing scam, change your password then contact us. You must act fast to protect your account and personal information.
