Recruitment Fraud Warning
It has come to our attention that various individuals and organizations have contacted people offering false employment opportunities using the United Therapeutics name.
The fraud involves posting jobs that do not exist on external recruitment websites, interviewing people for these fake jobs, making job offers, and requesting personal information, including bank account details, and/or extorting fees for recruitment-related activities.
