Galp Energia Portugal / Fake Job Scam Fraud

Galp Energia Portugal / Fake Job Scam Fraud

No real company hires you without an in person, face to face interview.  An email or telephone interview is always the sign of a scam!  No real company charges any money for a job even for a visa or work permit and even if they want you to pay and say they will refund the money.  You end up paying it to another scammer!  Read: www.scam-job-emails.tk  No real company or visa agent ever uses a free email address.  Read: www.scam-email-addresses.tk  No real visa agent ever requests you wire money into any bank account or by Western Union or Money Gram. Read: www.never-wire-money-to-strangers.tk  There are no exceptions!  Don't let a scammers convince you otherwise! 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: www.scam-telephone-numbers.tk   Always "Google" the telephone number and email address of any emailed job offer to see if it has been already been posted as a scam!
