The Fraud Squad is investigating a scam in which persons were falsely promising employment at Heritage Petroleum.
In a release, the company says individuals and their organizations have been hosting fake orientations and even using the names and contact information of bonafide Heritage employees to solicit large sums of money from unsuspecting job-seekers.
Heritage Petroleum has emphasized that no one is authorized to accept or request funds for employment at the company.
It adds that legitimate Heritage employees and recruiters will also not request cash or any related benefit from any third parties in connection with any job prospect or during its actual recruitment process.
It also insists that the persons conducting these false recruitment orientations are not affiliated with or authorized to act on behalf of Heritage Petroleum.
