Multiple fraud attempts using the Adecco name have been reported in several countries. Please be aware that NO Adecco Group representative, including Adecco and other Group brands, will ever request payment of any kind from a candidate or an associate during a job search or a selection process.

We have been informed that the ADECCO name and trademark are being used in several countries by persons who are in no way related to Adecco, Adecco UK & Ireland, or the wider Adecco Group. These persons place job adverts on general market websites using the name ‘Adecco’ without our permission. We also have reason to believe that emails, letters, telephone calls and other actions taken by these persons are nothing but illegitimate attempts to obtain money and access to job seekers’ personal and confidential information.

At the moment, we are aware of multiple fraud cases using the Adecco name in Canada, France, Ghana, Hong Kong, Italy, the UK and in the USA.
