Phishing Scam Alert: What Job Seekers Should Know

Assurant does not send unsolicited offers of employment.  If you receive an e-mail that says it is from Assurant regarding a job opportunity for which you did not apply, please report it to us at

Do not click any links or reply to the e-mail, and most importantly, do not open any attachments to the e-mail. 

If you have received an unsolicited message offering an opportunity for employment, or an invitation for an interview, you have been targeted as part of “phishing” scam aimed at job seekers.  While the message may look as if it comes from Assurant, it does not and is designed to trick job seekers into divulging personal or financial information that then can be used to steal your identity or commit fraud.

Assurant takes the security and privacy of all job applicants very seriously.  The following information is provided to help you learn how to distinguish “phishing” messages from real outreach by Assurant and protect the security of your computer system. 

Assurant will never:

  • Send you an unsolicited e-mail attachment
  • Ask you to reply to an e-mail with personal or financial information.  Do not respond. Delete the email immediately.
