Beware of Recruitment Scams Posing as Opportunities at Race Communications

Recruitment scams are on the rise, targeting job seekers with fraudulent offers. At Race Communications, we value transparency and the safety of our community.

It’s come to our attention that scammers, impersonating our team and using our name, have been offering fictitious job opportunities on platforms we typically use, like LinkedIn.

Recognize Official Communications

First and foremost, we want to clarify how genuine communication from Race Communications looks, and importantly, what we and our recruiting partners DO NOT do:

  • Official Email Domain: All legitimate emails from our team will come exclusively from a email address. Be wary of any communication claiming to be from us but using different domain suffixes (.org .us or .net)
  • Interview Process Integrity: We never offer job positions without a comprehensive interview process, which includes in-person or secure video conferencing.
  • Secure and Respectful of Privacy: We do not request sensitive personal information through unsecured channels like email or text messaging, nor do we require candidates to provide payment or cover any application expenses or fees.
  • No Undue Pressure: Candidates are never pressured to accept job offers without reasonable time for consideration.
  • Communication Platforms: Use of unsecured communication platforms, such as Discord or other social platforms, for recruiting purposes, is not part of our process.

We encourage those interested in joining our team to explore current job openings directly through our official careers page.

Discover your next opportunity with us by visiting Race Communications Careers and Race Communications Positions.


Stay Vigilant: Spotting Recruitment Fraud

Recruitment scams can take many forms, but their goal is often the same: to steal personal information or money.

Here are some common recruitment fraud red flags to watch for:

  • Requests for application fees or payments for equipment.
  • Urgent demands to apply or accept job offers.
  • Unsolicited requests for personal information.
  • Instructions to conduct transactions using Bitcoin or Ethereum.

The Fake Check Scam

A particularly notorious scam involves the “hiring” of candidates, followed by a request to purchase equipment through a supposed “company store,” promising reimbursement. Victims often find that the equipment never arrives and the reimbursement check bounces.

Protecting Yourself

The best defense against scams is caution and education. Do not engage with unsolicited job offers or business propositions from unfamiliar sources. Never disclose personal or financial information to unknown parties, and refrain from sending money to someone you have not met in person.
