P&G Anti-Fraud Legal Disclaimer
P&G has been touching and improving lives for almost 175 years, providing quality products people know and trust. Consumer trust in our products and our name is very important to us.
When individuals try to use our name to commit fraud, we are very concerned for our consumers. If you believe you have received a fraudulent communication claiming to come from P&G, please contact us directly using the “Contact Us” link on www.pg.com. If you were a victim of fraud, you should file a report with your local law enforcement. We’ve included some examples of scams below so you can be aware.
Certain individuals may attempt to obtain your personal financial information by suggesting you will experience an unfortunate event, or miss an opportunity such as a prize or an award, if you don’t supply them with your personal information immediately. Do not provide financial information to anyone calling or emailing you. Unless you initiated the contact, never provide personal information, including your Social Security Number, bank account details, credit card number or passwords over the phone, email, or internet.
P&G does not contact individuals to request their personal information. And we will never send you an email or call you claiming we’ve lost your records or are updating them. If you are unsure whether a P&G communication is legitimate, go to the company’s website by directly typing in the website address instead of using any link provided in the email. If in doubt, a safe alternative is to contact P&G directly.
There are individuals who use P&G’s name and trademarks in emails and on websites in an attempt to solicit fees from interested job-seekers. Some examples of these fees are placement fees or immigration processing fees. P&G does not use recruiting or placement agencies that charge candidates an up-front fee of any kind.
Occasionally, P&G does employ recruiting or placement agencies to help us identify candidates for specific employment within P&G. If you’re contacted by a legitimate recruiting or placement agency, there should be no charge to you, the job-seeker.
Other Scams (Secret Shoppers, Fake Checks, Advance Fees, Etc.)
Increasingly, fraudsters prefer wire transfers as the method of payment for numerous consumer fake-check scams. P&G will never send you a check and simultaneously ask you to send back a portion of that money via wire transfer or cash delivery service. Additionally, P&G will never enter you into a promotion such as a contest, sweepstakes, or giveaway without your express consent. If you win a promotional prize, P&G will not charge you a fee to send the prize to you.
