Multiple attempts at fraud involving the Adecco name and trademark have been reported in several countries. Please note that Adecco Group Nederland will NEVER ask a candidate or employee for any form of payment during an application or selection procedure.

We have learned that the ADECCO name and trademark are used in several countries by persons who are in no way affiliated with the Adecco Group. These individuals place job advertisements on general market websites under the name "Adecco" without our permission. We also have reason to believe that emails, letters, phone calls and other actions of these individuals are nothing more than unlawful attempts to obtain money and access personal and confidential information of job seekers and employees.

Protect yourself

Before disclosing any personal information, identity information, or bank information while searching for a job, make sure that your contact person is an authorized Adecco representative. You can confirm this by contacting an Adecco office in your country. The list of countries in which we operate can be found on our website

Beware of unexpected emails, instant messages, voicemails or faxes claiming to come from Adecco. Criminals can try to send malware or gain access to your data or accounts via email, phone, or text message. If you receive such a message, please contact an Adecco office in your country and check if the message is legitimate.

If you believe that you have fallen victim to such a scam, we strongly recommend that you report the incident to the local authorities as soon as possible.
