Recruitment Fraud Alert

Notice to Candidates: Recruitment Fraud Alert

Please be aware of fraudulent job offers that are not specifically affiliated with McKesson and are not listed on the McKesson careers website.

McKesson has been made aware of unauthorized career opportunities offered by malicious actors posing as large American companies, including McKesson. The fictitious jobs may be advertised on employment-search websites, such as Indeed.com and Craigslist.com, or using fraudulent websites that have names similar to the relevant company website. They may also require prospective employees to share their personal and financial information, provide copies of their government-issued identification, and/or send money for application fees, processing charges or work permits.

The victims who are “hired” are often instructed to deposit a check (which is later returned as fraudulent) into their own account and to forward overpayment to individuals – usually via wire transfer.

Important information for job seekers:

  • McKesson has a formal application process that will always include at least one interview with a McKesson representative, either in person or using videoconferencing technology like Webex. McKesson will not request an interview on a Google Hangout or text messaging.
  • McKesson will never request money for the opportunity to apply or work for McKesson.
  • McKesson does not require completion of tax forms, bank account or credit card information as part of the recruiting process.
  • If you are unsure if a message is from McKesson, contact EthicsPoint at 1.877.625.4625.

If you believe you have been the victim of a crime related to one of these scams, please contact EthicsPoint at 1.877.625.4625, and consider reporting the matter to a relevant government entity, such as local law enforcement, the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx) or the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) (www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov).
