Job Hiring Scam Alert - June 1, 2022

Recently, the Blueboard Information Security team was made aware of an ongoing social engineering scam wherein victims are contacted via email, Facebook, LinkedIn, or other social networking sites and interviewed by scammers impersonating Blueboard's HR team. The scammer attempts to set up fake interviews and offers the victims a position with the company. The scammer then asks for the victim's bank account, credit card, or other sensitive information in order to steal money from the victim.

The scammers have been reportedly using the following fake names and job titles:

  • Allen Jonathan, HR Recruiter

  • Mary Szymanski, Onboarding manager

Please be aware, that Blueboard's HR team will never ask you for your bank account information.

If you feel you have been a victim of this scam, Blueboard recommends you take immediate action and follow the steps listed below:

  • Contact your bank and put an immediate freeze on any unauthorized money transfers.

  • Report the incident to the FBI's cybercrime department located at https://www.fbi.gov/investigate/cyber

  • Get a credit freeze from the big three credit rating agencies (TransUnion, Equifax, and Experian).

  • Report the incident to your local law enforcement department.


Remember, the scammers will pressure you to act quickly and communicate with a sense of urgency. This is a tactic to get you to disclose sensitive information. Blueboard will never ask you for your password, bank account information, social security number, or other sensitive information during an interview or the hiring process.

Thank you,
Blueboard Inc.
