We have been made aware of some fraudulent recruitment scams being conducted by individuals or organisations purporting to be from Al Tamimi & Company in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This type of fraud tends to occur through online services including bogus websites, social media accounts, online job boards or through unsolicited emails. The aim of the fraud is to obtain personal information or money claiming to cover costs (flights, visa and relocation). Company names and logos are used to try to convey authenticity.
If you receive a communication purporting to be from Al Tamimi & Company and you are in any doubt about whether or not it is genuine, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We recommend that you do not respond to such unsolicited offers of employment. If you believe you are the victim of any fraudulent activity, we advise you to contact your appropriate authorities. Genuine emails from Al Tamimi & Company only use the domain of “@tamimi.com”.
Illegal use of our name and fraudulent emails
Please note that there are a number of scams operating whereby our name and those of our lawyers are being misused.
Al Tamimi & Company has learnt that fraudulent emails referencing the firm and the firm’s lawyers are being distributed with documents attached that are purported to be created by our firm.
The emails are inviting recipients to engage in fictitious investment schemes for purposes of defrauding the recipient.
Al Tamimi and Company has no involvement with these emails or any attached documentation.
We strongly urge members of the public to act cautiously for their own protection. Please do not reply or proceed with any such emails without first checking with our firm as to whether the emails are genuinely related to Al Tamimi & Company.
Please note also that our email addresses always end with @tamimi.com and we would never send emails from generic email accounts, such as Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, etc.
For further information relating to this, please email email@example.com.
