Employment Fraud Alert
Recently we discovered incidents of criminal activity by persons impersonating Ligand staffing, recruitment managers and employees, seeking to engage with job seekers on various online job search sites. These unauthorized individuals are using Ligand’s name and logo to make fraudulent offers of employment in an attempt to solicit up-front fees and obtain personally identifiable information from interested job seekers.
Please know that Ligand does not conduct interviews via text or chat rooms such as Skype or Google Hangouts, charge candidates an advance fee of any kind (e.g., fees for purchasing equipment), send checks to candidates for them to cash in advance of employment, nor does it offer positions of employment without conducting a thorough recruiting process that includes background checks. Please also note that any correspondence with regard to employment would come from an authorized Ligand.com email address.
If you receive unsolicited offers of employment from people claiming to work for Ligand, we recommend that you do not respond to their inquiries, do not open any attachments, and do not click on any hyperlinks.
