PHISHING SCAM WARNING: Legacy Foundation is among several companies recently made aware of a phishing scam involving con artists posing as hiring managers recruiting via email, text and social media. The imposters are creating misleading email accounts, conducting remote “interviews,” and making artificial job offers in order to collect personal and financial information from unsuspecting individuals. Please note that Legacy Foundation only uses company email addresses, which contain “@legacyfdn.org”, to communicate with candidates via email. If you are contacted by someone about an open job at Legacy Foundation, please verify the domain of the sender’s email address. If you have a question regarding an email you received, please call Legacy Foundation’s office at 219-736-1880 to confirm it was sent by an employee of Legacy Foundation. If you believe you have been a victim of a phishing scam, please visit the Department of Homeland Security’s Cyber Smart website to learn how to report it.
