BAM hit by phishing job letter scam

Fraudsters are trying to steal people’s personal information by offering them jobs with BAM Construction which do not exist.

The identity theft scam involves letters being sent to people asking them for identification data, such as copies of passports and photographs.

The firm issued a statement which read: “BAM has become aware that fraudsters are targeting individuals with fake job offers purporting to come from us.”

“The letter or email with the job offer asks you to send four colour passport photographs, a photocopy of your passport and a copy of your CV and other information about your identity.”

“Please note that BAM does not recruit in this way.”

“We advise you not to reply to such letters or emails or to give out any personal information.”
