It has come to our attention that fraudsters are posing as NES Fircroft, claiming to offer jobs to overseas candidates. The perpetrator will ask you upfront for a fee, or will ask you to share personal documentation, such as your passport and / or driver’s license, over social media.
These individuals do not represent NES Fircroft and we encourage candidates to be wary of anyone asking you to exchange documentation or money over social media. This is not how we conduct our professional business.
Things to look out for:
Official NES Fircroft business will always be conducted via an email address using the @nesfircroft.com email domain. Do not engage with email addresses that do not have this domain.
The following email addresses have been linked to fraudulent activity:
Social media page names
We only have 2 legitimate Facebook accounts. They are the following:
•NES Fircroft - https://www.facebook.com/NESFircroft
•NES Fircroft – Thailand - https://www.facebook.com/nesfircroft.thailand
If you see any page names such as “NES Fircroft CA”, “NES Fircroft Canada”, “NES Fircroft Global Talent”, “NES Fircroft Talent”, “NES Global Talent Canada” etc. – this is not a genuine company page. Do not engage with the page. If you see an account which has been created within the last few months, do not engage with it – this is not a genuine company page.
Our corporate Facebook accounts are controlled by the Marketing team. Individual recruitment consultants do not have access to our Facebook pages, and are not permitted to use our company name as part of their private social media accounts.
The following phone numbers have been linked to fraudulent Facebook accounts:
+ 1 862-419-3407
+1 (323) 765 8403
Several candidates have identified that common names associated with the accounts are “Arthur Stanley” and “James Brown”. We do not have employees of these names.
Graphics and documentation
We no longer use the NES Global Talent logo or name in any capacity. Our merger in September 2020 with Fircroft resulted in a corporate re-brand, meaning we now go by the name of NES Fircroft. There are however occasions where we go by just “NES” (specific Middle East countries only) and this is reflected in our logo where appropriate. We are never “NES Global Talent”.
