It has come to our attention that veterinary-related jobs are being offered in Colombia through what appears to be a fictitious Colombian branch of the AVMA. The AVMA does not have an official presence in Colombia, and we want to assure you that the association is not offering any type of veterinary jobs there.
We are working to determine the origin of the solicitation and to stop its further distribution.
Update posted March 1, 2013:
After further investigation into what is a scam solicitation announcing veterinary jobs through a group claiming to be the Colombian branch of the AVMA, we have issued a letter – in both Spanish and English – that will be distributed to veterinarians in Colombia explaining to them that the AVMA is not part of the solicitation and that we are not offering any types of veterinary jobs in partnership with any Colombian organization.
We continue our efforts to determine the origin of the solicitation.
