We’ve received reports of employment scams operating under the guise of being a job recruiter for Kickstarter.
It’s important for anyone on the receiving end of these messages to note that Kickstarter does not do the following:
- Communicate job offers via email addresses not affiliated with @kickstarter.com
- Conduct interviews via instant messenger or google hangouts
- Require you to spend money for purchase of equipment or services
- Offer to send a check to cover costs related to equipment purchases
We recommend checking our jobs page to see if the job description offered matches our available positions.
If you receive a message that appears suspicious, feel free to contact us via employment-scams [at] kickstarter.com. Per the FBI’s recommendations, we also encourage you to file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission’s Consumer Sentinel or the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
