Causing a lot of distrust among candidates by sending course slips for them to pay, we decided to investigate the alleged vacancies.

A little while ago the Click Oil and Gas and other widely circulated media published alleged job vacancies in the oil and gas sector, the recruiters called themselves representatives of Energy Petroleum. It was a publication on Linkedin announcing the calls for professionals from various segments and professional backgrounds.

They claimed that people had to pay for a specific course to work in the company and they responded by sending a payment order in the form of a bank slip for an “alleged qualification school for this course”.

As the publication was on a professional social network and the “swindler” managed to name his profile with the name of the company, many fell for the scam but luckily he was discovered and some had already fallen for the scam, see how.

  1. E-mail whose name is not their own domain - despite being a common practice among recruiters to use outlook, gmail, hotmail and other free servers to not compromise the company's servers, the fraudsters used the pretext that due to them having finished arriving in Brazil, they still didn't have an official email.
  2. CNPJ was not found – every company that eventually settles in the country, an operation CNPJ is issued, asked in the same way, she said that she had not yet resolved these bureaucratic issues.
  3. She tried to use names of renowned recruiters in the Brazilian oil and gas market to try to gain the confidence of candidates – Amazingly, she said that CEPEM (CENTRO DE PSICOLOGIA EMPRESARIAL) was in negotiations with her to help with the recruitment.

The Discovery of the Coup

Although we published these vacancies (WHICH WE REGRET A LOT), we contacted CEPEM to verify the veracity of the information. She called Energy Petroleum's official headquarters in the United States and they said that there are no ongoing operations in Brazil. Asked, again publicly by us and other people after the scam was discovered, the swindlers deleted the profile and removed all publications.
