The Bell Resources Group like many organisations, is the subject of false representations by unscrupulous individuals not associated with the company. The company continues to take steps to limit the impact on our customers, suppliers and shareholders. Some of the more common examples are noted below.
1. FRAUDULENT EMAILS
Fraudulent offers of employment have been emailed to job seekers by individuals, organizations, internet sites, or social media accounts claiming to represent the Bell Resources Group. In some cases, job seekers have been asked to disclose personally identifiable information, or pay a processing or work permit fee (as much as several thousand dollars) before beginning their “new role”.
These fraudulent emails do not originate from the Bell Resources Group. They are recruitment scams designed to extort money and/or personal information.
The Bell Resources Group will never request funds, require the transfer of money, or seek advancement of fees at any stage of our recruitment process. This includes costs associated with immigration, attorney fees, airline fees, travel insurance or related expenses. The Bell Resources Group does not initiate any immigration process until a verified offer of employment is extended to and accepted by the candidate.
If you receive communication that you believe is fraudulent or have suffered a personal loss from a recruitment scam, please contact your local law enforcement.
2. IS YOUR JOB OFFER A SCAM
Several clues can help you determine if your job offer could be a scam:
- Are you being asked to pay processing fees, travel fees, immigration fees, or make a payment of any other kind? The Bell Resources Group never seeks any funds from job applicants.
- Even when the Bell Resources Group has engaged a staffing agency to help identify candidates for positions, these third parties will never request funds from job seekers on behalf of the Bell Resources Group.
- Does the email come from a @bellresources.com.au email address? Even if the email address contains the word “Bell Resources”, it still may not be from the Bell Resources Group.
3. HOW TO SAFEGUARD YOURSELF
- Do not send any money or provide any personal information to an offer of employment by the Bell Resources.
- Report any email communication requesting payment of any kind to your local law enforcement.
- Research additional information available to you.
Any unsolicited contact from a person claiming to be a Bell Resources Group recruiter or a staffing agency acting on behalf of the Bell Resources Group should be confirmed. If you have any questions or would like to verify an offer of employment purportedly from Bell Resources, please call our corporate offices on +(61) 29251 9337.
