Phishing Alert

February 2019

Phishing is a scam typically carried out through unsolicited email and/or websites that pose as legitimate companies and lure unsuspecting victims to provide personal and financial information.

As an Australian-based energy and infrastructure services group, Valmec is committed to protecting the interests of our community and stakeholders.

Valmec has recently been targeted in job posting scams in the United States, where the poster has used Valmec’s identity to post false job opportunities and then send applicants a fraudulent letter of offer, along with pertinent documents such as Tax W-4 form and Employment 1-9 forms.

This scam is designed to extract money and/or phish information from individuals, asking them to release personal information (such as tax and bank information).

Valmec is an Australian-based company and does not offer opportunities for employment overseas at this time.

Valmec posts job opportunities through our official website and reputable Australian-based job forums such as SEEK and LinkedIn, and conducts rigid interview processes, reference and medical checks before offering employment contracts to potential candidates.

If you have been offered a job without a formal interview, then it is likely to be a scam.

Please forward suspicious job offer emails to and then delete the email. Do not respond to it. We will then manage each incident on a case-by-case basis and forward it on to authorities if required.

If you have received a suspicious email and have responded to it with personal and financial information, please contact your relevant institutions to report it.
