E-mail fraud schemes are currently circulating on the Internet where fraudsters use Saudi Aramco's name (often in connection with noteworthy events) to solicit job applications or contract proposals, and require the victims to pay job-application or other processing fees. Sometimes, the scams take the form of telephone calls rather than e-mails. Certain versions of this scam are very sophisticated. Occasionally, a scammer will send a fake check for a large amount of money to the victim to cover the "processing fees." The scammer hopes the victim pays the fees before discovering that the check is fraudulent. If you do receive an unsolicited e-mail offering you a job at Saudi Aramco or inviting you to bid for a contract -- sometimes involving extremely large amounts of money -- this is invariably a scam. Do not send any money.
This warning is issued to the general public as a public service. Saudi Aramco, its subsidiary companies, and their agents will not be liable for any losses incurred as a result of these unauthorized activities.
