Canada Post Advises That Employment Ads in Newspapers Are Fraudulent

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 20, 2007) - Canada Post wishes to advise Canadians that advertisements recently published in various newspapers and on the Internet, offering employment opportunities with the corporation, are fraudulent.

An investigation by Canada Post's Security and Investigation Services has revealed that these fraudulent ads direct applicants to a "Mystery Shopping Application Form" where unsuspecting individuals are asked to complete the form and provide personal information. The form suggests that the employer is Canada Post and displays Canada Post's corporate trade-mark logo. It is believed that the advertisements are being used in an attempt to obtain personal information including banking details.

All bone fide Canada Post career opportunities are posted on our corporate website: If the position is not on the corporate website, the career opportunity advertised is most likely fraudulent. All advertisements for external vacancies at Canada Post are handled by TMP Worldwide.
