Warning of Fraud with Fake Job Offers

In light of current events, we urgently warn against messages that improperly send fake job offers in our name. These messages are sent with fraudulent intent and we ask for special caution.

The platform “Ebay Kleinanzeigen” is currently being used to send out abusive job offers to users in our name, asking them to send their CV or other private data, such as scanned ID cards, to an e-mail address that is not ours. In the further course of the process, applicants will be asked to legitimize a bank account via Online ID and to release passport and account data.

The sender indicates that they are employed in the recruiting department of Basler AG. The domain used ( gives the impression that this is a genuine contact with Basler AG.

We take these fraud cases very seriously and have already taken police action against them. If you have any comments or questions about fraud attempts in connection with job offers, please contact us at any time at the e-mail address

We assure you that fraud attempts will be reported to the police immediately.

How to react if you are affected:

  • In order to prevent the misuse of any data that may have been disclosed, we recommend that you take action with the investigating authorities. Reports can be made at the local police station or as an online report via the “Internetwache” of the responsible federal state.
  • If you wish to report fraud attempts or have any questions or uncertainties, please contact us at the above e-mail address.

How does Basler’s application process work?

  • We post our job offers exclusively on our own career page or on the usual job exchanges.
  • In the context of an application, we never ask candidates to provide us with social security, identity card or passport data or to register or legitimize themselves on bank pages.
  • In case of uncertainties or questions regarding current job advertisements, our HR team is available via e-mail or telephone: You can find the contact details on the respective job offers on our career page.
