Fraudsters are looking to get our clients’ Criteo credentials or to steal money from anyone by impersonating us. Be aware of the dangers and protect yourself.

Ongoing Phishing/Fraud campaigns

Phishing and fraud attempts impersonating Criteo could target anyone. To protect yourself, we have provided examples of recent malicious attempts below. If you have doubts about the authenticity of a communication from Criteo, please refer to this list.


Criteo Advertise Investment Marketing

Scammers are trying to steal money by using a fake company labeled “Criteo Advertx Trading”. WhatsApp is one of the channels they use to contact you.

They propose different investment formulas. To invest, money has to first be deposited in a bank account. A refund with a big bonus percentage is promised.

Reminder: Criteo will never ask you to deposit money in order to earn a commission. This is not what our business is about.

Financial fraud attempts

Fake domain names that look very similar to ours are used by fraudsters in an attempt to impersonate us.

They target our customers and try to convince them to modify their Criteo account payment settings to point to their own bank account.

Examples of such fake domain names :

Customers receive an email from an apparently real employee of Criteo whose email address looks legitimate but actually isn’t ( instead of for example). That (fake) person may ask for a payment/email modification or access to sensitive information.

The differences between fake domain names and ours are sometimes subtle. Our advice is to pay extra attention to domain names and links inside all emails.

Fake login pages

Fraudsters have registered several domain names to impersonate Criteo. They used these domains to host fake login pages with a design similar to ours and sometimes with the exact same content. The fraudsters will then proceed to steal the credentials from unsuspecting customers trying to connect to their Criteo accounts.

The only official URLs to sign-in to your account are : and


Fake recruiting campaign

Fraudulent domains that resemble our official Criteo domain were registered and have been used in a fake recruiting campaign.

The fraudsters are misleading victims into believing they will earn money through commissions obtained as a Criteo agent.

The fraudsters request that several deposits be made along the way to “activate a data creation process” and complete the operation. This is a scam, Criteo will never ask you to deposit money in order to earn a commission.
