Robert Walters would like to alert you to an impersonation scam involving individuals pretending to be Robert Walters employees. Some individuals have informed us that they received local or overseas WhatsApp texts or calls with the callers claiming to have potential job opportunities.
Voice phishing is a typical scammer’s tactic to trick unsuspecting individuals to reveal personal or confidential information over the phone.
Here at Robert Walters, we take such incidents seriously. Individuals should be careful with revealing personal and confidential information over the phone to unverified parties. We therefore ask that you exercise utmost caution and to verify the identity of the caller.
