JOB RECRUITMENT FRAUD

 

PETRONAS has been made aware of unauthorized individuals or organizations falsely using the PETRONAS name in emails in an attempt to recruit on behalf of PETRONAS and solicit up-front fees obtaining immigration documents including for visa or work permit for expatriate posting within a PETRONAS Groupwide from interested job-seekers or members of the public.

 

The modus operandi of the party or parties behind the fraud is to pose as PETRONAS’ recruitment department and charge job seekers certain amounts of money to secure job opportunities with PETRONAS.

 

PETRONAS wishes to stress that it has not authorised such e-mail based recruitment. However, periodically, PETRONAS engages recruiting and/or placement agencies to help us attract potential candidates for specific positions. PETRONAS appeals to the public not to respond to the e-mail or any such emails.

 

There are a few quick ways to recognize fraud:

 

  1. PETRONAS official website pages always include http://www.petronas.com.my. Any other format is not genuine.
  2. On-line recruitment portal is http://www.discoverpetronas.com and those who wish to seek employment with PETRONAS are advised to visit only this portal.
  3. Email communication on recruitment from PETRONAS, if any, would be sent by PETRONAS’ officials using only e-mail domains of @petronas.com.my.
  4. No money transfers or payments of any kind will EVER be requested from applicants nor by PETRONAS or any of the agencies that recruit on our behalf, at any point in the recruitment process; or for immigration documents, insurance, or any other purpose.

Should you experience any of the foregoing, please treat the communication as fraudulent and forward it to: ghrmic@petronas.com.my.
