Fortescue advises that all current job opportunities will be advertised on our website or via Seek and encourages candidates to refer to these websites only when searching for a role. 

If you receive one of these emails you are advised to report it to the Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network (ACORN) and delete it from your system without clicking on any links or opening any attachments. 

Fortescue has reported the scam to Scamwatch, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), and the Australian Federal Police.
