In recent months, criminal cyber scammers have posted advertisements for Virtual Assistants, Remote Assistants, and Executive Assistants on recruiting sites such as LinkedIn, Indeed, Glassdoor, and Barefoot Student and are fraudulently using our employees names and illegally claiming to be employed by or authorized representatives of Mackay Communications, Inc. and Mackay Marine.
At present, the cyber scammers are using the following emails which are not associated with Mackay: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. If you see one of these ads or are contacted by someone using these email addresses, or are suspicious about the legitimacy of an ad or individual, I would strongly encourage you to cease communication and to provide as much information you can about the job site and related communication to Toni.DeSmet@mackaycomm.com so that we can put a stop to this deception.
Protect yourself from scammers, below are the common signs of a fake job:
The moment you become suspicious, don’t just Google the company, call them! Do whatever you can to protect yourself from cyber scammers.
If you want to verify the legitimacy of an advertised vacancy for our company or of an individual who contacted you about a job, please do not hesitate to contact
