The scammers pretend to be part of the Inova Health System in an attempt to obtain personal information from job seekers.
The scammers pretend to be from a DC-area hospital system to try to get people’s personal information — and they’re not targeting patients with fake overdue hospital bills. They target people looking for a job.
Inova Health System said the fraudsters posed as hospital system recruiters. They go through job sites like LinkedIn and Indeed and send fake job postings and requests for personal information.
An email shared on the Inova site shows the scammers asking people for their name, address and phone number for a “home office check-in”.
The health system said anyone contacted by an email address ending in @inovahealthsystem.careers must not reply or dialogue with the sender.
They are working with the authorities to try to clean up the scam and have advised anyone who thinks they have a job offer with them to contact the company directly to make sure.
If you’ve shared financial information, monitor your accounts and call your bank.
“We condemn the actions taken by these threat actors and regret the disruption they have caused to potential candidates,” the health system said. said in a statement.
