LyondellBasell Industries have come across several fraudulent and deceptive "phishing" communications circulating via e-mail using the LyondellBasell and Lyondell Chemical brands. The e-mail scams summarized below do not include all hoaxes in circulation that mentions company's name or brand. Other scams may exist and may not be listed here.
- One message falsely claims Lyondell Chemical Company is looking for payment agents who will be compensated for receiving payments from our customers and clients. The e-mail states a salary and asks the recipient to provide additional personal details by contacting the sender who claims to be affiliated with Lyondell.
- Another e-mail falsely states the recipient is a beneficiary of the non-existent Lyondell Chemical Online Endowment Fund Award (LYOEFA). The message is signed in the name of a former employee of Lyondell and urges the recipient to reply to an e-mail address for additional information.
LyondellBasell and its subsidiaries (including Lyondell Chemical Company) are in no way associated with these e-mails, letters or programs. The company does not advertise for employment by sending messages to personal e-mail accounts, and we will never ask you for personal information via e-mail. The company's name is being used without permission and it is currently investigating the situation. The company recommends that you immediately discontinue all communications with such emails or letters and contact your local and/or federal authorities.
