Xeon International files a claim against “Unknown”

Xeon International has recently been the victim of identity theft. Some wrong-doing individuals are claiming to hire a so-called Xeon International payroll assistant and are presenting themselves as Xeon international staff. For their purposes, they do not hesitate to falsify documents while using the logo and the content from Xeon International. They also use the names of Xeon international staff and sign falsely on their behalf.
Their appearance on recruitment websites such as Glassdoor are FALSE!

At Xeon International, we are clearly taking distance from those people who are bad in their intentions and who try to create reputational damage for all involved parties.

The best way to act, is to report the practices by sending a complaint to the local authorities. Please feel free to send us a copy of your complaint at info@xeon-international.com.

Finally we want to thank the many people who have been contacting us to report the scam. We can only encourage further support to help us getting those people out of “business”.

Below is a description of the scam pattern:

I recently received an email regarding a notice of a job interview from a certain Mr. George Walker who I assume is from the Human Resource Department at Xeon International. This was after I sent my résumé to Ms. Crystal Cale (HR Manager) as a response to a job post message she sent me through the job search website, www.jobsearch.gov.au.

I assumed that both Mr. Walker and Ms. Cale are employees of Xeon International, based on the information in the email and the attached web address which links to the Xeon International web page, https://xeon-international.com/about/mission.

Ms. Carly’s original message was regarding a job opening for an HR Manager job position to which I responded by emailing her my résumé through the email address she sent. After a day, Mr. George Walker responded to my email stating that they are looking for a Payroll Assistant; this got me confused because the initially job offer was for a HR Manager.

This got me very skeptical, along with the following:
1. The email account handler used by both contacts is too general “george_walker88@mail.com” and “crystal.cale@mail.com”, which is different from the email addresses used by your employees in your company website, “info@xeon-international.com”).

2. The way the email letter is composed is quite sketchy/ dodgy, especially that the composition is very different or written unprofessionally as compared to the company introduction.

3. The job description/ responsibilities of the said Payroll Assistant position are far different from the responsibilities of a common Payroll Assistant. Please see below, the said email from Mr. George Walker.

These are obvious red flags, but it would be best if you could clarify or confirm my assumptions that the job notice is possibly a fake one and that they are just using some of your company’s information or contact details.

Another reported scam pattern is the following:

An era of change is needed.

Xeon International is an Investment boutique that provides a real alternative to existing financial models. Indeed over the last 15 years we all have experienced 3 major crisis.
We believe that the origin of this recurrent pattern finds a partial explanation by the development of ever more sophisticated financial products that have nothing to do anymore with basic value creation. They are actually highly speculative, driven by personal greed and mostly on the detriment of others.

This is NOT how we conceive creating wealth for our investors.

If we add to this that the integrity of financial institutions have been questioned through numerous scandals, we wonder what is the sustainability and integrity of these practices.

At Xeon International, we look at things differently because we believe clients and investors deserve to be treated with more transparency, respect and ethics: all in a language they do understand. We look at the business with the eyes of our investors and clients while our solutions are genuinely individual.
We go back to the basics of value creation.
Xeon International is an exclusive boutique offering a mix of 4 services.
From Company Financing and Growth management advisory to Private Equity management and Family Office services, we accompany our investors and clients independently and in their best interest and according to their needs.

We cherish our “lean and mean” structure and do not believe in the efficiency of standardised and anonymous organisations where no one is in charge anymore.

Xeon International is headquartered in Luxembourg and has built a global presence with its partners.
