Beware of recruitment fraud

March 25, 2022  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Recruitment fraud from groups pretending to be or representing Michigan Medicine may be sent in a variety of formats, including email, text and hard copy.

Most often, a fraudulent email is sent offering employment with Michigan Medicine. These emails often look legitimate and will include details of the employment position, such as job description, salary and benefits. They usually request payment from prospective employees to obtain visas or immigration documents.

Please do not send money or pass any personal details to anyone suggesting they can provide employment with Michigan Medicine. If you have applied for a position through a legitimate channel, Human Resources will have the information needed.

If you are unsure if a communication you have received is legitimate, please review the guidance below: 

  • Michigan Medicine would not offer a job without performing a formal interview process.
  • Interview information is always provided to candidates either by phone, or email from a verifiable Michigan Medicine email account. 
  • Do not send money. No money transfers or payments of any kind are part of the recruitment process.
  • Verify the email address. Legitimate emails from Michigan Medicine end in @med.umich.edu.
