Please be aware new identity theft technique targets candidates seeking positions at Takeda
Recently, identity thieves have been posing as recruiters for major companies, including Takeda, in order to steal personal information from unsuspecting job seekers. The thieves visit job/recruiting web sites and invite the candidates to an online chat posing as a Takeda HR employee (and sometimes using a real Takeda employee’s name). During the chat, they press the job seekers to divulge bank account information and Social Security numbers.
Takeda experts are currently investigating and determining ways to mitigate or stop this scheme. Takeda recruiters will never ask for personal financial information in a telephone, face-to-face or online video interview. Currently the thieves seem to be working only job posting boards within the US, so if you have any concerns related to this issue, we recommend you to take the following actions:
If in the U.S., consider placing a freeze on your credit reports. Information on how to do this is located at https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0497-credit-freeze-faqs
File a complaint with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/
File a report with your local police department.
