Notice of Fraudulent Job Offers

GrafTech is aware of fraudulent offers of employment made by people who claim to be employees of GrafTech’s Human Resources department, but who are not affiliated with GrafTech. This kind of fraud is normally done through unsolicited e-mails, online third-party employment websites, and instant messenger programs. These individuals will often request recipients to provide personal information, send checks to the recipient with the request that the checks be deposited into the recipient’s personal bank account, and request that the recipient purchase training materials and office equipment as part of the fake recruiting process. GrafTech takes recruitment fraud very seriously, and by making you aware of this, we hope to prevent victims from falling for these scams. GrafTech does not accept responsibility for this recruitment fraud and recommends that all job-seekers educate themselves on these fraudulent practices so that they do not become a victim.
