Denver, CO, United States
| Saudi Aramco-Related Scams Saudi Arabian Oil Co. (“Saudi Aramco”) has become aware of attempts to impersonate the company, or members of the company’s executive team, on social media platforms such as LinkedIn and Twitter. In addition, e-mail fraud schemes are currently circulating on the Internet where fraudsters use Saudi Aramco's name to solicit job applications or contract proposals, and require the targeted consumers to pay job application or other processing fees. Sometimes, these scams take the form of telephone calls rather than e-mails, and certain versions of this scam are very sophisticated—occasionally, a scammer will send a fake check for a large amount of money to the victim to cover the "processing fees." |
These fraud schemes have been on the rise in recent months and are intended to deceive consumers in order to obtain their sensitive personal information and/or large sums of money purportedly in exchange for Saudi Aramco shares, employment, or a contract bid.
To identify these scams and differentiate them from legitimate communications from Saudi Aramco, please note that:
• Saudi Aramco’s executive team, including the CEO, do not have accounts on social media platforms. Please report any such accounts to firstname.lastname@example.org because they are fake.
• Saudi Aramco will never request fees or payment during any stage of its recruitment process. For questions on recruitment, please contact email@example.com.
• Saudi Aramco will never offer to buy or sell products as part of an exchange on social media.
• Saudi Aramco will never offer company shares as part of an exchange on social media.
If in doubt about the legitimacy of a communication, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. This warning is issued to the general public as a public service. Saudi Aramco, its subsidiary companies, and their agents will not be liable for any losses incurred as a result of any unauthorized activities.
