Recruitment Fraud

Recruitment Fraud Statement

Job applicants should be aware of job offer scams perpetrated through the use of the internet, social media platforms or fake e-mails claiming to be from the company. The perpetrators may even misappropriate and use a company’s logo and photos of its executives to give the appearance of legitimacy. Peabody believes that one of the best ways to put a stop to this scam is to make you aware of it.

No applicant for employment with Peabody is ever required to pay any money as part of the job application or hiring process. Peabody’s job recruitment process involves in-person and/or telephone interviews in most cases.

In addition, Peabody’s recruiting staff sends e-mail communication to job applicants from “@peabodyenergy.com” and "@brassring.com" e-mail accounts only. Any email appearing to be from Peabody that does not have a “@peabodyenergy.com” or "@brassring.com" address should be assumed to be fraudulent.


Recognizing Recruitment Fraud

All Peabody applicants are required to apply for Peabody jobs through www.peabodyenergy.com. Please let us know if an accommodation is needed for any part of the application process due to a medical condition or disability. Visit the Contact Us page for contact details by location.

Fraudulent job offers often ask for financial or personal information early in the process. Peabody does not ask for any financial commitment or contribution from a candidate at any stage of the recruitment process.

Fraudulent job postings often do not mention required qualifications and job responsibilities, but instead focus on the amount of money to be made.

If you believe you have been the victim of job recruiting fraud, you should file a report with your local law enforcement.
