***This notice is to make you aware of a recently discovered internet scam involving false offers of employment using the names of various W.R. Berkley company names. This fraudulent scheme involves offers of employment through an online process and may include a request for payment for “visa processing fees” by the individual seeking employment.
While W.R. Berkley Corporation and its member companies use various online employment sites to source potential candidates, no offer of employment would involve the request for payment of visa processing fees from the applicant. If you encounter such a situation or similarly suspicious online employment process, please do not pay the requested funds, and promptly contact emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to report this situation.
We are actively investigating this matter along with the appropriate state and/or federal authorities to determine the parties responsible for this malicious and fraudulent activity.***
Founded in 1967, W. R. Berkley Corporation is an insurance holding company that is among the largest commercial lines writers in the United States and operates worldwide in two segments of the property casualty insurance business: Insurance and Reinsurance. Each of the operating units within Berkley participates in a niche market requiring specialized knowledge about a territory or product.
Our competitive advantage lies in our long-term strategy of decentralized operations, allowing each of our units to identify and respond quickly and effectively to changing market conditions and local customer needs. This decentralized structure provides financial accountability and incentives to local management and enables us to attract and retain the highest caliber professionals.
We have the expertise and resources to utilize our strengths in the present environment, and the flexibility to anticipate, innovate and respond to whatever opportunities and challenges the future may hold.
