Job Interview Phishing Scam Notice

Update: In addition to the information below, Xedea.com is not affililated with cyrptocurrency or any online payment systems.

Overseas fraudsters and scammers can impersonate a company in an attempt to gain access to your personal information, including bank account details, and to fraudulently conduct business with others. We’ve been alerted to a few people impersonating our employees and conducting fake interviews as Xedea over Telegram, WhatsApp, Skype, email, various messaging apps, and third party employment sites like Monster, Upwork, and RemoteHub.

While Xedea conducts much of the hiring process virtually at the moment due to Covid-19, please note that we will only contact you via verified xedea.com email addresses for email correspondence, sending calendar invites, and video conferencing.

If you have received correspondence from someone claiming to represent Xedea, be aware that:

  • Xedea DOES NOT hire outside agencies
  • Xedea DOES NOT conduct any employment interviews or business over Telegram, Whats App, Skype chats, Google Chat, or direct messages.
  • Xedea DOES NOT use generic email addresses (such as outlook.com, hotmail.com, or gmail.com) to communicate whatsoever.
  • Xedea NEVER asks for bank details or to open new accounts or wire money.

When in doubt, only reply to @xedea.com email addresses, and don’t hesitate to verify with us who you are communicating with. To do this, or if you have any other questions, please contact fraud [@] xedea.com for more information

If you’ve received messages or emails that look like the examples below, please know that they are part of this fraudulent scheme. Xedea’s name is being used without our authorization and we have no involvement with this or any other scams.

Xedea does not conduct business or interviews over Skype, Google Hangouts, DM or any chat platforms and does not request banking information.
