What is recruitment fraud?​​​​​​​

Scammers advertise jobs the same way honest employers do, online in ads, on job sites and social media.

Unsuspecting applicants may be invited to particiapate in disingenuous interviews, asked to fill out false employment applications, even issued fake offer letters. The goal of enticing victims to pay money or divulge sensitive personal information.

These scammers may go to great lengths to collect your personal information. They may claim to work for U.S. Bank as a third-party vendor or even create fake website that resemble employee portals or career sites as a collection point for your data.  

During the U.S. Bank hiring process, you will never be asked to:

  • Apply for a position via a non-U.S. Bank site. Our open positions can be found on our career site at and our corporate site can be found at
  • Provide your social security number before you've accepted an offer.
  • Provide payment to U.S. Bank.
