Please read carefully because this applies to every job offer you receive!  99% of emailjob 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 etc. are also free email addresses.  Read: No real visa agent ever requests money via wire to a bankaccount 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:  If the company does not have a website or the website does not work, it is a scam!  Do not assume a website is legit!  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! Publicity defeats scammers.  Post the scam emails you receive and warn your friends! Always "Google" all telephone numbers, email addresses and websites in any job offer to see if it has already been posted as a scam!

  3. There was no phone interview or further detail required from me and yet they sent me an employment offer for a job which seemed so convincing due to the fact that the HR Director name was used and he was unaware of this. I believe it is a scam since I need to make advance payment for the visa/work permit myself!
