Please be aware of spoof e-mails and fake job postings that appear to be from well-known companies, including Turner Construction Company. To bait you, an e-mail or job posting may offer you an immediate employment opportunity, then ask you to submit personal information or give you direction to begin work immediately. These fake emails and job postings are an attempt to gain your private information through fraudulent methods.
Please note Turner Construction Company does not make offers of employment prior to completion of a thorough hiring process, which includes a face-to-face interview. The company does not request any type of payment from the candidate during the hire process.
If you have received an offer of employment and you have not participated in a face-to-face interview with Turner Construction Company, the correspondence you received is fraudulent and should be disregarded.
Individuals should exercise caution if they receive unexplained checks payable to them and that appear to be coming from Turner Construction Company or appear to be drawn upon a Turner Construction Company bank account.
Turner does not typically send checks to anyone unless the company is doing business with that individual.
Turner has seen many cases when the check received by a person is not genuine, and it is often a fraudulent device designed to steal the recipient's identity - and even their funds.
Never deposit any check into your bank account unless you are sure it is genuine.
Turner has become aware of efforts by third-parties to illegally obtain payments through fraudulent emails or other forms of communication to provide new and different payment instructions. Please do not act upon or accept any request to change the payment instructions specified in your contract with Turner unless the communication comes directly from a Vice President of Turner in writing by regular mail and you follow up with a phone call to Turner at a number you know to be accurate.
We have received reports of fraudulent impersonators reaching out to non-profit and charitable organizations with promises of donations. Turner will never send a request to an organization asking for their banking information to make an unsolicited donation.
Turner’s commitment to community outreach is an integral part of our business. Our long-standing relationships with charitable organizations bring benefits to the communities in which we work. If you would like more information on how Turner can support your organization, please contact Mary Edrehi firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fraudulent Purchase Orders
Fraudulent Purchase Order schemes include imposters posing as an employee of a company. These imposters place orders for materials and equipment over the phone or via email that looks or sounds like a Turner email account; using the actual name, address and title of a Turner employee; and/or providing a phone number that when called is always answered “Turner Construction.”
Imposters provide false purchase order and/or contract numbers; stress that the order needs to be expedited; and explains that there may not be someone on-site to sign for the delivery but ask you to leave it at the site without a signature.
What you can do
Confirm the order with Turner prior to fulfilling the order by contacting the main office for Turner listed on the company website. If you are an existing Turner vendor, call the office you usually do business with. Do not use the phone number that was provided with the order and do not use email or text. Ask to speak to the Project Manager on the job that the order is for, or the Office Financial Manager. Please contact us to report an imposter as well. Turner will take the necessary steps to prevent these incidents from occurring in the future.
