Phishing Scam Alert – Fake Job Posts
Individuals Seeking Employment Defrauded by Entity Identifying itself as Path Interactive
September 1st, 2016
There are disreputable companies and individuals posing as Path Interactive to scam consumers so please be aware of fake job posts.
Be assured that these practices have nothing to do with Path Interactive or any company affiliated with it. We have learned that a company identifying itself as “Path Interactive” using a domain name www.pathinteractivemail.com has been posting phony job listings on various employment websites and boards, with particular focus on college job boards. The fraudster then attempts to have the applicant unknowingly deposit a forged check into his or her bank account and then forward a portion of those funds to the fraudster before the check bounces. Path Interactive does not engage in these practices. Current job openings and career opportunities can be found at https://www.pathinteractive.com/about/aboutcareers/.
We are pursuing all necessary steps to notify the appropriate law enforcement and governmental authorities about this scam and urge anyone who has responded to a fraudulent job posting, interacted with the fraudsters or been the victim of this fraud to do so.
If you have been the victim of this scam, we suggest that you contact your local and/or federal law enforcement authorities for advice on how to proceed to recover any stolen funds, secure your bank account and to protect your personal information and privacy. You may also want to file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov.
