It has come to our attention that individuals are contacting people offering false job opportunities with the American Hospital Association. We are taking this matter extremely seriously, and are currently working with the appropriate legal authorities to attempt to terminate this fraudulent scheme.

What is recruitment fraud?

Recruitment fraud is a sophisticated fraud offering fictitious job opportunities. This type of fraud is normally perpetrated through online services such as fraudulent job postings on legitimate job boards, job postings using bogus websites, or through unsolicited e-mails claiming to be from the American Hospital Association. These emails request recipients to provide personal information and sometimes money, under the guise of applying for and becoming an American Hospital Association employee.

How to identify recruitment fraud

The perpetrators often ask recipients to complete bogus recruitment documentation, such as application forms, terms and conditions of employment or visa forms. The American Hospital Association name, logo and photographs of hospitals are often featured on the documentation without authority

  • There is an early request for personal information such as address details, date of birth, CV, passport details, bank details etc.
  • Candidates are requested to contact other companies/individuals such as lawyers, bank officials, travel agencies, courier companies, visa/immigration processing agencies etc.
  • Correspondence may contain typographical and grammatical errors.
  • E-mail correspondence is often sent from (or to) free web-based e-mail accounts such as,,,, etc.
  • The perpetrators frequently use mobile telephone numbers instead of official company numbers.
  • The perpetrators may even offer to pay a percentage of the fees requested and ask the candidate to pay the remaining amount.
  • There is an insistence on urgency for the applicant to act on the correspondence received.

Recruitment fraud involving American Hospital Association

Currently we are aware of certain job postings made through ZipRecruiter for the position of “Administrative Assistant”. This posting asks interested candidates to email a person at an unaffiliated email address to be considered for the position.

What should I do?

  • Save messages from the perpetrator for further investigation if necessary. Save the original subject line, complete headers and complete message content.
  • Report the situation to the American Hospital Association at 312-422-3000 and ask for Rosa Hartman, so that we can continue to work to stop the fraud.
  • You should also contact your local police or legal authority and provide them with all information you may have from the senders.
  • When looking to apply for a job online with the American Hospital Association, look for a link on the Careers page of our official website:

Do Not:

  • Respond to business offers of employment from people that you have not confirmed are legitimate.
  • Disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know.
