Hope this message finds you well!

I received your resume from our recruiter on America Job Exchange and wanted to send a quick note your way. Not sure of your current employment status and your short and long term career goals, but we have openings at our new United Kingdom establishment that might be a great next step for you. Can you take a look with us, if interested you can contact me at +447024012996 and

Our desire to hire foreigners fits our company’s strategic hiring needs for a diverse workforce. It is also due to our urgent need for experienced expatriates to join our United Kingdom team with immediate effect.

The company provides fully serviced accommodation, competitive benefits and salary, paid periodic vacations and will arrange relocation (with family, if necessary) amongst a host of other incentives.

If not interested in the role or if now isn’t a great time for a move, just let me know if I can help in the future or if you need assistance in making a connection.

Well, a rough estimate for the registration would be $900 Max. for your position. Its a one time fee. But we have to wait till the end of the day or tomorrow to see how much will be fixed.

Please read carefully because this applies to every job offer you receive! 99% of email job offers are scams! No real company hires you without an in person, face to face interview. An email, online or telephone interview is always a scam! No real company ever charges any money for a job even for a visa or work permit! If they want you to pay and say they will refund the costs, you will just send money to a fake embassy official, travel agency or lawyer who is a really a scammer! Read: No real company, government or visa agent ever uses a free or public email address (,, etc.) Email addresses like,,, etc. are also free email addresses. Read: No real visa agent ever requests money via wire to a bank account or by Western Union or MoneyGram. Read: No real company uses a telephone number that begins with +44 70, +44 871, +44 870, +44 844, or +44 845. Those are forwarding numbers which are not in the UK. Read: There are no exceptions! Don't let a scammers convince you otherwise! A scammer is only as smart as his victim is naive! If something sounds too good to be true, it is a scam! Always "Google" all telephone numbers, email addresses and websites in any job offer to see if it has already been posted as a scam!
