Beware of Fraudulent Offers

Groupon does not charge/accept any amount or security deposit from job seekers during the recruitment process. It was observed that there has been an increase in recruitment fraud involving scammers who post fraudulent job openings, or who contact job-seekers with fake job offers. These individuals sometimes even conduct fraudulent interviews with an attempt to obtain personal information or money from the applicants. We have also noticed that certain individuals claiming to be from the Groupon Talent Acquisition function are contacting prospective candidates pretending to represent Groupon with job offers. In case you or any candidate receives any unsolicited or fraudulent communication regarding a job offer or an interview call against payment of money, please stay alert and recognize it as a scam. We are not liable for any loss or damage incurred as a result of dealing with such entities. To prevent falling victim to the same, please visit    grouponcareers.com    to verify the job opening.
