Beware of Job Scams

Cyber criminals are posing as company recruiters and using fake job advertisements and employment offers to get people to hand over personal information. Be alert and never provide financial information or payment to anyone claiming to offer a job opportunity.

During the recruiting process, Stanley Black & Decker will never:

  • Ask for payment to process documents, purchase equipment or for any other reason
  • Request banking or credit card information 
  • Direct you to third party services to obtain visas or other documentation

If you believe you’re a victim of a job scam, report it to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) or your state attorney general. To learn more about job scams, read the FBI’s public service announcement or visit the FTC site.
