Recruitment Fraud Alert

It's come to our attention that individuals are being contacted and offered false employment opportunities at HDR. They are victims of Recruitment Fraud.

What is Recruitment Fraud?
Recruitment fraud is a sophisticated crime offering fictitious job opportunities. This type of fraud is normally committed through online services such as bogus websites, text messages, emails and online instant messaging interviews claiming to be from HDR. The messages victims receive request them to provide personal information and, ultimately, sensitive financial information.

We want to clarify the following:

  • All open positions available with HDR will be posted at The web address that you will see begins with "". 
  • HDR does not recruit for open positions through instant messaging or texts.  
  • HDR does not ask prospective job applicants for information about their bank accounts, to provide credit card information or passwords to financial accounts, or, purchase equipment or software directly. 
  • If HDR needs additional information as part of the hiring process, applicants will be directly contacted by an HDR recruiter or the hiring manager.
  • We encourage anyone who is contacted by someone representing employment opportunities with HDR to verify the address, title and phone number of anyone representing themselves as an employee of HDR.
  • HDR does not make job offers to candidates without having interviewed them on the phone first and ultimately in person. HDR does not conduct online 'chatroom' style interviews.
  • Offers and other written communication from HDR regarding employment are written using correct grammar. If you have been offered employment by someone who is not using proper grammar please take caution and investigate the source of the communication.

If you see a job posting on a site other than or are asked for personal financial or security information, this is likely a fraudulent posting hosted by scammers posing as HDR, Inc. in order to commit identity theft or other forms of fraud. If you receive this type of suspicious text, email or instant messaging activity, please alert the FBI's Internet Crimes Complaint Center:
