Hoax offers of employment

Be aware of fraudulent offers of employment.

We are aware that emails are circulating containing offers of employment that look like they originate from Cairn.  Although these offers look to be genuine they are fraudulent hoax offers.  It would appear the hoax is intended to defraud recipients of their personal information and / or money.  Please see below for detailed below information to help you identify a fraudulent offer of employment.   

The points below may help you to identify if you have received a fraudulent offer of employment.

  • You have not applied for a vacancy at Cairn
