Recruiting Fraud Statement

Beware of Recruiting Fraud

Job applicants should be aware of recruiting scams on the Internet and social media platforms. The scammers frequently use a company’s logo and photos or the names of its executives to give the appearance of legitimacy. The fraud targets job seekers and uses false and fraudulent offers of employment with legitimate employers, like Aptar, to steal from the victims.

Aptar believes that one of the best ways to put a stop to these scams is to increase public awareness.

No applicant for employment with Aptar is ever required to pay any money as part of the job application or hiring process.

Aptar’s recruiting process involves in person, video and/or telephone interviews. In addition, Aptar’s recruiting staff sends email communications to job applicants from email addresses with the “” domain name only.

Any email that claims to be from Aptar but does not have an “” address should be assumed fraudulent.

Recognizing Recruiting Fraud

The following are warning signs of recruiting fraud:

  • You are required to provide your credit card, bank account number(s) or other personal financial information as part of the “job application” process
  • The open position does not appear on the company’s website listing of open positions
  • The contact email address contains a domain other than “”, such as a personal email address like “”, or same variation of the domain like “” to make the email address seem authentic
  • The position requires an initial monetary investment, such as a payment by wire transfer or other means for paid training or an online course
  • The posting includes spelling and grammatical errors
  • You are offered a payment or “reward” in exchange for allowing the use of your bank account (e.g., for depositing checks or transferring money related to employment)
  • You are asked to provide a photo of yourself
  • The job posting does not mention required qualifications or job responsibilities, but instead focuses on the amount of money to be made
  • The job posting reflects initial pay that is high compared to the average compensation for the position type
  • The “employer” contacts you by phone, but there is no way to call them back or the number is not active or goes only to a voice message box
  • The “employer” contacts you about a job application you did not submit
