Broadcom wants you to be aware of a scam that targets potential job applicants. Scammers posing as companies or company employees are contacting job seekers about employment opportunities. We know of at least one case where scammers used Broadcom’s name to target a potential victim.
According to the Better Business Bureau (BBB), scammers get the names of job-seekers who have posted their contact information on publically available websites, including job sites. After contacting the victim online, which may include an online interview, the scammers tell applicants they are hired and send instructions with requests for a variety of personal and financial information.
Please be aware that Broadcom does not request sensitive personal data (i.e. date of birth, social security number and/or banking information) from applicants via text/instant message or any other unsecured method; nor do we conduct job interviews using these methods. Additionally, Broadcom does not have job opportunities for work from home/data entry positions.
Furthermore, Broadcom does not use recruitment or job-sourcing agencies that charge candidates an advance fee of any kind (e.g., placement fees, immigration processing fees, etc.)
