FAKE OFFERS OF EMPLOYMENT / PHISHING ATTEMPTS
We are aware of fake offers of employment which appear to be from Generation Investment Management being sent via email to a small number of individuals around the world. The fake offers ask recipients to respond by sharing their personal identifiable information (PII).
Data protection professionals refer to this type of practice as “phishing,” or the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information or data by disguising oneself as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.
Legitimate offers of employment from Generation are made only after extensive interviews by Generation personnel. Please note any email contact from Generation will use our “generationim.com” email domain. If you are concerned that you provided PII to a third party in response to a fake offer of employment, please contact your domestic fraud prevention authority.
