Fraudulent Job Offer Information

ABIOMED is aware that some job seekers have received false employment offers or recruitment emails from an individual or organization posing as ABIOMED. Individuals or organizations sending these false employment offers may request personal information or funds to further the recruitment process.

Please be aware that ABIOMED will never request passport details, money or other personal or financial information from job seekers. All individuals who are successful in gaining an offer of employment from ABIOMED, whether directly or indirectly, are always required to go through a formal recruitment process including an interview with a member of ABIOMEDís recruitment team.

One quick way to identify scam job offers is to check the email address. Legitimate emails from ABIOMED employees end in Some recent scams have come from email addresses that are similar (i.e.,,, etc.) or email addresses using public domain IDs (<>,<>,<>, etc.). Be aware that sometimes fraudsters even use photographs and names of real people at companies and also create fake websites and marketing materials that look very similar to the companyís genuine website. ABIOMED takes action to shut these false addresses and websites down as soon as we are made aware of them, but often this is only after the scammers have contacted many job seekers.

ABIOMED is taking all necessary steps to investigate this matter further.
