Recently we have discovered incidents of con artists posing as Qualcomm staffing and recruitment managers, seeking to engage with job seekers on various online job search sites. These unauthorized individuals are using Qualcomm’s name and logo – and in some cases the images and titles of Qualcomm employees -- in an attempt to solicit up-front fees and obtain personally identifiable information from interested job seekers.
Please know that Qualcomm does not conduct interviews via chat rooms such as Google Hangouts, charge candidates an advance fee of any kind (e.g., fees for purchasing equipment), nor does it offer positions of employment without undergoing a thorough recruiting process. Please also note that any correspondence with regard to employment would come from an authorized qualcomm.com email address and not from a qualcomm-incorporated.com email address as has been utilized in these most recent fraud attempts.
If you receive unsolicited offers of employment from people claiming to work for Qualcomm, we recommend that you do not respond to their inquiries, do not open any attachments, and do not click on any hyperlinks. If you have information regarding a potential fraud attempt, feel free to contact Qualcomm’s Global Security Department at telephone number 1 (858) 587-1121.
