Recruitment fraud

Recruitment fraud is something CNOOC International takes seriously. Normally done through unsolicited emails, online recruitment services such as LinkedIn, bogus websites and even text messages claiming to be from CNOOC International, it offers the promise of job opportunities that are fraudulent.  The goal for those who conduct this type of fraud is to obtain personal information or money.

Recent incidents have occurred involving both individuals and organizations falsely claiming to recruit on behalf of CNOOC International.

We recommend that you do not respond to unsolicited offers of employment from people claiming to work for, or be affiliated with, CNOOC International. If you believe you have received a fraudulent communication, we would advise that you contact your local police.

Warning signs:

CNOOC International will NEVER adopt any of the below practices: 

  • Request money (e.g. for ‘visa fees’, taxes, a percentage of travel expenses).
  • Request personal information such as passport and bank account details early in the recruitment process
  • Send emails from free web-based email accounts such as Yahoo, Gmail or
  • Use mobile (cell) phone numbers, rather than office numbers.
  • Insist on urgency from the outset.
  • Use poorly formatted documentation or make significant grammar and spelling mistakes.
