Notice to Candidates: Fraud Alert – Fake Job Opportunity Solicitations Used to Collect Fees/Personal Information.

Magellan Health has learned that fake job opportunities are being offered by individuals posing as employees or representatives of Magellan Health in order to fraudulently obtain personal information or payments from job applicants. The jobs may be advertised on one or more employment-search websites or certain social media outlets. These emails may look authentic and will include details of the employment opportunity, such as job description, compensation and other benefits, but typically do not have authentic email addresses. Applicants are being asked to share certain financial information and be asked to supply social security numbers, state driver's licenses, bank account information and other sensitive personal information. Applicants may also be requested to send money for application fees or may be referred to an organization that requests fees for processing the documents.
