Fraudulent Activity Disclaimer

Fraudulent Activity

Gusto takes security and protection of your personal information very seriously. Please be aware of individuals that might approach you by falsely presenting themselves as our employees or representatives. Under this false pretense, they might try to gain access to your personal information or to acquire money from you by offering fictitious employment opportunities on our behalf.

Gusto will never ask for financial information of any kind or for payment of money during the job application process (which will always occur over phone, through video call, or in person). We do not require any financial, credit card or bank account information, and/or any payment of any kind to be considered for employment. Gusto will never pay you by sending money through a money transfer company or by putting money on a gift card and then giving you the number on the back. Gusto will also never send you a check, tell you to deposit it, and then send back the money.

All employees of Gusto are issued laptops and any other necessary equipment at the time of hire. If you are asked to pay for equipment fees or some other deposit or application processing fee – even if you are told you will be reimbursed – this is not Gusto. These claims are fraudulent, and we encourage you to exercise caution.

Any email correspondence with Gusto will be through “” email addresses. Gusto will always confirm with candidates that they are in fact interviewing with Gusto. To confirm your candidacy, please reach out to [email protected] from the same email address you are using for the recruitment process.

Gusto is not held liable or responsible for any claims, losses, damages, or expenses resulting from scammers. If you suspect a position is fraudulent, please contact [email protected]. If you believe you are the victim of fraud resulting from a job listing, please contact your local authorities. 

To report a scam, file a complaint online with the Federal Trade Commission.
