Recruitment Fraud

Abu Dhabi Gas Development Company Ltd. (Al Hosn Gas) has been made aware of scam/fake job offers that are sent by individuals claiming they are:
  • Representatives of Al Hosn Gas or subsidiaries (real or imagined) of Al Hosn Gas.
  • Under contract with Al Hosn Gas or a subsidiary to locate prospective employees for work on projects.
The aforementioned individuals are in no way authorized to act on behalf of Al Hosn Gas, therefore the said offers are completely fake and not valid. We treat such abuse seriously and have already taken steps with competent local law enforcement to investigate and prosecute these kind of illicit activities and by publishing details of such abuses we aim to reduce the opportunities for the scammers to profit from their activities and to prevent individuals falling victim to fraudulent practices.
Therefore, if you receive a request, either electronically or verbally, for an interview of a job offer that you believe is or might be fraudulent or suspicious, please disregard them.
