Red Cross Employees Alerted About Email Scam

Red Cross
January 11, 2008

We have been made aware of communications circulating via email claiming that the Red Cross Donation Department is looking for employees in the European Region. The email states a salary and asks anyone over 21 to apply for the position by forwarding their resume to Human Resources Department at an address that is not affiliated with the American Red Cross.

The American Red Cross does not advertise for employment by sending emails to private email accounts. This is an email scam using the American Red Cross brand, and the Internet Crime Complaint Center of the FBI has been notified. If you receive this email, treat it with caution. To avoid becoming a victim of fraud, do not forward any personal information in response to unsolicited and suspicious email.

If you are seeking employment with the Red Cross, use only authorized Red Cross Websites. For information on employment with the American Red Cross, go to www.redcross.org/jobs. Or for information on employment with the International Committee of the Red Cross, go to www.icrc.org.

The American Red Cross helps people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. Last year, almost a million volunteers and 35,000 employees helped victims of almost 75,000 disasters; taught lifesaving skills to millions; and helped U.S. service members separated from their families stay connected. Almost 4 million people gave blood through the Red Cross, the largest supplier of blood and blood products in the United States. The American Red Cross is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. An average of 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian services and programs. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on donations of time, money, and blood to do its work.
