As a Berkley company, Berkley Select is staffed with a team of experts with a specific focus on Professional Liability. Berkley Select utilizes individual risk underwriting, loss control and claims practices to provide superior products and services to its customers.
A recently discovered internet scam involving false offers of employment using the names of various W.R. Berkley company names has been discovered. This fraudulent scheme involves offers of employment through an online process and may include a request for payment for “visa processing fees” by the individual seeking employment.
While W.R. Berkley Corporation and its member companies use various online employment sites to source potential candidates, no offer of employment would involve the request for payment of visa processing fees from the applicant. If you encounter such a situation or similarly suspicious online employment process, please do not pay the requested funds and promptly contact us here at Berkley Select to report the situation.
We are actively investigating this matter along with the appropriate state and/or federal authorities to determine the parties responsible for this malicious and fraudulent activity.
