Morgan McKinley is aware of unauthorised individuals impersonating our staff to target job seekers, to capture personal information, apply for jobs and, in some cases, solicit up-front fees from interested jobseekers. They are doing this using fake social media accounts including LinkedIn, Facebook and messaging platforms such as WhatsApp.
A large number of recruitment companies and other reputable organisations across the world are being used, you will find similar warnings on their websites to combat this problem.
Morgan McKinley will not reach out to a new connection via a messaging platform i.e. WhatsApp. We use established channels to reach out to our candidates initially such as email from our official domain name @morganmckinley.com, LinkedIn, or phone.
We continue to monitor the situation very closely. Please remain vigilant and if unsure, please call our office to verify our consultant's identities or reach out to email@example.com.
