In the case of Business Propositions
The Fraudster poses as representative of a Baron Point subsidiary company or the Baron Point Group and seeks opportunities of business transactions related to physical commodity products, contracts, investments, projects, etc.
In the case of Recruitment Offers
The Fraudster sends initial enquiry followed by an online interview questionnaire and an offer of employment without any face-to-face interview. These communications are pretending to be sent on behalf of a Baron Point subsidiary company or the Baron Point Group. These offers notify individuals that their qualifications are found suitable to work and solicit the transfer of significant sums of money to pay for visa, work permits, etc.
Please note that a Baron Point subsidiary company or Baron Point Group never selects candidates based upon an online interview and never asks any money or fee, either directly or indirectly, from any applicant at any point of time during the recruitment process.
All job vacancies are published on the Baron Point Group careers area of our website.
Best Practices so you do not get scammed!
- Know who you are dealing with.
- Do not disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know or trust or on a website you do not trust.
- Should you have disclosed this information to somebody you do not know or trust or to a website you do not trust consider reporting the incident to your local law enforcement.
- Be alert for certain suspicious signs – e.g. poor use of language, communications from non-baronpoint.com e-mail addresses (e.g. from a yahoo.com, gmail.com, hotmail.com addresses), requests for advance money, contact through social websites such as LinkedIn, etc.
- It is against Baron Point Group’s enterprise policy to do any business outside of a baronpoint.com domain, so never accept any solicitation or discussion of business if it is coming from a non-baronpoint.com domain.

- Be suspicious when dealing with persons who do not have a direct telephone line on the company system and who are never in when you call, but always return your call later.
- Independently verify the legitimacy of any franchise, investment or recruitment offer before you take any decision.
- Kindly report any scam offers through firstname.lastname@example.org. Your identity will be held in the strictest of confidence.
