Registration Fraud

It has come to our attention that fraudulent communications soliciting payments or offering training are being sent via e-mail by persons claiming to be from NExT or Schlumberger.

In the e-mail, customers are told provide payment to receive registration or to obtain immigration documents.They may be referred to an organization that requests fees for processing them. In some cases, they are promised employment following training.

These communications are fraudulent.
They do not originate from Schlumberger or NExT.

There are a few quick ways to recognize fraud:

1. NExT training emails always end in @nexttraining.net. Schlumberger emails always end in "@slb.com".

Any email styled with "Schlumberger" or "NExT" using a different format is not genuine. We will NEVER request that a customer  email information to an email address not ending in "@slb.com" or "@nexttraining.net".

2. The NExT training website pages always include http://www.nexttraining.net.

Any other format is not genuine. NExT will NEVER request a prospective applicant to visit a website with any address that does not include http://www.nexttraining.net or http://www.slb.com.

3. The location of training is ALWAYS provided to candidates either by phone, or e-mail from a Schlumberger email account ending in "@slb.com". 

NExT will never ask for payment unless a customer has preregistered for a training course. 

Should you experience any of the foregoing, please treat the communication as fraudulent and contact us using the Contact Us page or through a NExT regional office near you. NExT will strive to investigate the situation and have corrective action taken.
