We have been made aware of certain fraudulent schemes that have been conducted by individuals or organizations claiming to represent Tiny Planet Digital. This type of fraud tends to occur through online services including bogus websites, social media accounts, online job boards, or through unsolicited emails or text messages. The aim of the fraud is to trick you into believing you are communicating with a Tiny Planet Digital team member or representative in order to enter into a business relationship with, or apply for and/or obtain employment from Tiny Planet Digital with the goal of obtaining your personal information or money. Tiny Planet Digital’s name, logo, and other company information is used without permission to try to convey authenticity.
If you have any concerns, see suspicious job advertisements, or receive suspicious communications that reference Tiny Planet Digital, please submit an inquiry through our Contact Us page. Legitimate information regarding career opportunities with Tiny Planet Digital can always be found on our official LinkedIn page.
We recommend that you do not respond to any unsolicited offers of employment or to engage in a business relationship. If you believe you are the victim of any fraudulent activity, we advise you to contact local law enforcement immediately.
Warning signs of fraudulent activity:
- If you receive solicitations, recruiting or hiring documentation, advertisements, or emails that contain spelling and grammatical errors, or which are poorly formatted.
- If you receive an email from an email address at a domain that is not affiliated with the company (for example, @yahoo.com, @yahoo.co.uk, @gmail.com, @live.com, @consultant.com, etc.), or a domain that mimics (but is not actually the same as) the domain used by our company. Tiny Planet Digital company email addresses all end with “@tinyplanet.digital”.
- If you are asked to only contact a mobile phone number via WhatsApp, Telegram, text or other channels.
- If you are asked to participate in an “interview” or conduct a business relationship exclusively by chat, text, or email.
- If you are asked to send money for any purpose prior to entering into a contract or receiving a job (for example, to cover claimed processing fees, immigration or visa costs, or recruiter fees). Tiny Planet Digital never requires applicants to submit money to our company or its outside recruiters to pay for travel, immigration, or other fees or expenses.
- If you receive a request for personal information early during the process, such as your address, date of birth, passport information, social security number, or banking details.
- If there is an insistence on urgency for you to act on the correspondence received within very short time frames.
