Fraudulent Emails

Fraudulent email messages referred to as "phishing" are becoming more common.

These types of emails point to invalid hyperlinks that are revealed when you hold your cursor over them. These links may contain malware, which could harm your computer. Other fraudulent emails may request financial information from you.

By using company trademarks, colors, logos, mail systems and legal disclaimers these "phishing" emails can look very real. Individuals have used these techniques in order to fool Indeed users. You can usually spot these emails because they may say they are "processing" your Indeed account for a third party such as Amazon or PayPal. They may request financial information or your bank account information.

These are not Indeed communications. Should you receive any of these emails, do not click on the links provided.

Instead, delete the email. If you've already clicked on a link, run a virus scan immediately.

Please note that Indeed does not request personal information, financial information, account numbers, bank account numbers in an unsolicited manner through an email request. If you have any questions, please contact Indeed.

More information on fraudulent emails can be found on the Federal Trade Commission's website. You can report fraud to the FTC here.
