Note on False Employment Offers

We have received reports about people receiving false offers of employment from us or an executive by email. These emails, which may appear genuine at first, are fraudulent and were not sent by anyone at or associated with us. This is a criminal act and punishable by law.  

How do I know if I’ve received a fake offer?

The fake offer may include salary information. It typically provides minimal details about benefits and asks that the applicant send back money if s/he decides not to proceed with the job. The letter may have our logo or executive signature, making it appear authentic. These emails often look trustworthy at first blush, so vigilance is necessary. 

What can I expect from a genuine offer?

Our Human Resources is in contact with candidates throughout the interview and employment process. If a job offer from us is unexpected, then it is probably a scam. A genuine offer from us will never ask for money. 

What should I do if I receive a fake letter?

Be cautious when opening any unverified emails. Do not click on or open any attachments or provide personal information. If you receive what you believe is a fake offer letter, we recommend you immediately contact local law enforcement and/or forward the messages to HumanResources@brookfieldpropertiesretail.com. To assist law enforcement in investigating these matters, please retain all email correspondence relating to the fake offer.
