Please be advised that we have received reports of fraudulent job offers, which appear to come from Informatica, but are actually generated by malicious actors seeking to take advantage of job applicants. 
Unsuspecting applicants may be invited to participate in bogus interviews, asked to fill out fabricated employment applications and, on occasion, have even been issued fake offer letters, all with the ultimate goal of trying to entice victims to pay money or divulge sensitive personal information. 


Recruitment fraud is a sophisticated scam offering fake job opportunities to job seekers. This type of fraud is normally carried out through online services such as false websites, or through fake e-mails claiming to be from the company. The fraudsters often request recipients to provide personal information and to make payments as part of their fake recruiting process. 

Please note that Informatica, its subsidiaries and authorized recruitment partners will NEVER ask you for any account information, nor ask for payments for completing a job application or processing fees.  

At no time during the hiring process will an Informatica recruiter ask you to make any type of payment to be considered for a role. We’ve found that in some cases of recruitment fraud, individuals may send candidates a check to deposit, then inform the candidates that have overpaid and will request a partial refund. If you suspect you have received a fraudulent offer, please contact local authorities. 


  • The email is from a Gmail, Yahoo, or Outlook address. Informatica staff will never email you using a free internet email service like Yahoo, Gmail or Hotmail. 
  • They ask for payment. The perpetrators may even offer to pay a large percentage of the fees requested and ask the candidate to pay the remaining amount. Informatica, its subsidiaries and authorized recruitment partner will NEVER ask you for any fee or payment. 
  • You are not the only recipient on the email. Informatica staff will never email you about a job offer to multiple people at once. 
  • They ask for personal information early in the process. Informatica will never ask you to submit your personal information without having you apply on our career site first. Beware if individuals make early requests for personal information such as your date of birth, passport details, bank details, social security number, etc. 
  • They require you to contact a third-party. Informatica will not request you to contact other companies or individuals such as lawyers, bank officials, travel agencies, courier companies, visa/immigration processing agencies, etc. 
  • They ask to continue the conversation by text. This makes the scam harder to document. Conversations about legitimate offers will be conducted by email. 
  • The email contains grammatical or spelling errors. A very common attribute of scam emails is that they do not bother to spell check or grammar check their outgoing emails. 
  • There is no contact information for the sender. Any legitimate email from Informatica Human Resources or Recruiting department will have a signature line with the sender's name, title, and contact information. 
  • There is an insistence on urgency. Depending on the role, we typically have multiple interviews with candidates and at least one in-person or video interview before making a decision to hire. Frequently, perpetrators of recruitment fraud will conduct the entire hiring process over email and will often ask candidates to complete bogus recruitment documentation, such as application forms, terms and conditions of employment, or visa forms. In these cases, the Informatica name and logo were fraudulently featured on the documentation.  


If you feel you are falling victim to recruitment fraud, or something just doesn’t feel right, please contact your local authorities.


  • Respond to unsolicited business propositions and/or offers of employment from people with whom you are unfamiliar. 
  • Disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know.
  • Engage in further communication if you believe the communication may be fraudulent. 

By making you aware of these fraudulent schemes, we hope to keep you from being victimized, and ultimately stop these schemes from being perpetrated against others.
