This notice is to make you aware of a recently discovered internet scam involving false offers of employment using the names of various W.R. Berkley company names. This fraudulent scheme involves offers of employment through an online process and may include a request for payment for “visa processing fees” by the individual seeking employment.
While W.R. Berkley Corporation and its member companies use various online employment sites to source potential candidates, no offer of employment would involve the request for payment of visa processing fees from the applicant. If you encounter such a situation or similarly suspicious online employment process, please do not pay the requested funds, and promptly contact Acadia Insurance to report this situation.
We are actively investigating this matter along with the appropriate state and/or federal authorities to determine the parties responsible for this malicious and fraudulent activity.
