Note on Fraudulent Job Offers

Galecto has received reports of people receiving fraudulent offers of employment from us. The fraudulent offer process includes individuals posing as Galecto executives by email, text and through LinkedIn and extending verbal and written fraudulent offers of employment. The persons making these fraudulent offers often request sensitivepersonal information as part of the “hiring process”, including copies of drivers’ licenses, passports and/or IRS Form W-4 information.

How do I know if I received a fraudulent offer?

Fake interview requests, often sent by email, text or through LinkedIn, and offer letters, may include our logo orexecutive signature making them appear authentic. These emails and/or offer letters often look trustworthy at first blush, so vigilance is necessary. The only legitimate business email domain we use is and our employees will never use a gmail or other personal email address to contact you.
