A Quick Note

World Relief never solicits passport information or other personal data over the internet. World Relief does not charge application fees or processing fees to potential applicants. If you receive e-mail communications that appear to be from World Relief asking for personal data over the internet or payments to process an application, it is a scam. If you get such a request, do not respond. Please forward the e-mail to World Relief at jobs@wr.org.

Since logos, emblems, names and addresses can be easily copied or reproduced, you are advised to take particular care in applying for vacancies, including undertaking all appropriate measures to protect against the unauthorized use of any personal information you may have provided as a result of the scam. You may wish to also contact your local law enforcement agency to report the matter.
