Security & Phishing

Multiple fraud attempts using the Adecco name have been reported in several countries. Please be aware that NO Spring representative will ever request payment of any kind from a candidate or an associate during a job search or a selection process.

We have been informed that the Spring name and trademark are being used in several countries by persons who are in no way related to the Spring Group. These persons place job adverts on general market websites using the name ‘Spring’ without our permission. We also have reason to believe that e-mails, letters, telephone calls and other actions taken by these persons are nothing but illegitimate attempts to obtain money and access to job seekers’ personal and confidential information.

At the moment we are aware of multiple fraud cases using the Spring name in Canada, France, Ghana, Hong Kong, Italy, United States of America and the United Arab Emirates.

Protect Yourself

Before releasing any personal information, ID or bank account details during a job search process, make sure your contact is an authorised Spring representative. You can confirm this by getting in touch with an Spring office in your country. 

Beware of any unexpected e-mail, instant message, voicemail or fax that claims to be from Adecco. If you receive such a message, get in touch with an Adecco office in your country and verify that the message is legitimate.

If you believe that you have been victim of such scams, we strongly recommend that you report the incident to local authorities.
