Beware of Fraudulent Job Offers and Interview Letters


It has been brought to the attention of Colgate-Palmolive (India) Limited ('CPIL') that certain individual/s posing as an ‘HR Executive’ of CPIL are fraudulently enticing unsuspecting candidates with fake job offers at CPIL by using fake appointment letters and/or interview letters in return for money, at times terming such money as a ‘refundable security deposit’. 

CPIL will not be responsible to anyone acting on an employment offer not directly being made by CPIL. CPIL reserves the right to take legal action, including criminal action, against anyone attempting to misuse the brand name, brand logos and the names / designations of our employees for illegal and unauthorized activities.
