I saw a Zappos job posted online and/or someone from Zappos contacted me about a job offer. Is this an official job posting/offer? Did a real Zappos recruiter contact me? Fraudulent job offer notice:

Fraudulent job postings and hiring scams are becoming increasingly prevalent. Scammers have been known to target individuals by sending fraudulent job offers and requests for interviews via email, text messages, mail and through various social media platforms such as Facebook and Gmail Hangouts.

Some fraudulent job offers include phone numbers and encourage potential applicants to call in pursuit of job opportunities. These type of emails and other materials typically request the applicant provide sensitive personal information and occasionally request money.

Individuals making these fraudulent job offers or other similar false offers of employment are not affiliated with Zappos in any way. If you have received any such emails please be aware that they were sent without Zappos’ knowledge or approval. Legitimate job offers from Zappos are sent through Jobvite and will never be sent through personal email accounts. Please note, Zappos will never request money from a job applicant.
