Recruitment Fraud Warning

We caution you to be aware of internet, email and telephone scams in which perpetrators try to take advantage of job seekers by pretending to represent legitimate organizations. The goal of these scams is to convince job seekers to pay money or divulge sensitive personal information.

This type of recruitment fraud can occur through online job boards, social media, or unsolicited emails, texts or calls. The fraudulent communications typically request that job seekers provide personal information (such as social security number, credit card or bank account information) and make payments or deposit checks. Contact is often made through public domain email accounts (such as or, and fake interviews may be set up online through instant messaging or chat rooms (such as Google Hangouts).

All available job openings at the Peter G. Peterson Foundation and the Peterson Center on Healthcare are listed on our site. We do not contact applicants from public domain email accounts and do not conduct online interviews, nor do we ever ask for personal information online. There are never any fees or financial transactions associated with applying for employment with us.

By bringing attention to this issue, we hope to help prevent job seekers from becoming victims of recruitment fraud.

If you see a suspicious job posting or communication, you should not respond in any way, including by sending personal details or money. You should report the posting or communication to the applicable job board, social media site or web provider. You can also report online scams to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center at and to the Federal Trade Commission at
