Sunday, September 28, 2014 - Fake Job Scam Fraud


Dear Applicant,
                             A Response Following Your Employment Request
Thanks for taking interest to join Tabikeng Corporation, hereinafter referred to as the Company. We hereby acknowledge receipt of your request for a job with us. In this mail, we will explain the basic procedure for employment with us and we will also provide you with our application and interview form, which you can find in attachment. Read through this mail carefully before filling the application and interview form. If you have any questions, please feel very free to ask.

Employment terms:
We will consider your application and if accepted, you will work with us for a probationary period of three months before we validate your long term full time employment with us. You will be on probation for three months during which we will pay you the normal salary for the post which you applied for. During the probation period, we will evaluate you in the following domains:
    ·  Performance based evaluation; you will be expected to satisfactorily perform at least 75% of the tasks/duties listed in the job description which you read on our website before submitting your employment request. The job description sheet will be provided to you again upon acceptance of your application.
     ·  Conduct based evaluation; you will be provided with our code of conduct upon our acceptance of your application.
     ·  Evaluation based on professional ethics; Professional ethics is of great concern to us and we will expect you to practice acceptable professional ethics.
We sincerely hope that your performance, conduct and ethics during the probation period will be satisfactory. Upon satisfactory completion of the probation period, your long term full time employment with us will be validated. Your first location of work will be at our Cameroon branch where we have been awarded a project for the construction of a deep seaport and associated industrial facility. Upon completion of this project, you will either remain here in Cameroon in our branch office or you will be sent to one of our offices in Europe or in another country as the need may be. But you might probably be transferred because when we complete the construction phase of the project, we will transfer most of our permanent staff and leave back only those necessary to run the maintenance phase.
Salary package and other such benefits:   
Payments are made in United State Dollars. The initial pay for the position which you are applying for will be calculated as follows:
- Position applied for: Structural Fabricator
- Salary per hour:  $50
- Hours of work per day: 8 hours
- Salary per week:   $2,000
-Weekly schedule: Monday-Friday. Saturday work is considered overtime with extra payment. 
Salary is payable at the end of each working week. This salary is tax deductible and 2.5% of base salary will be deducted as tax for foreign nationals joining our work force. Tax deduction for Local nationals will be as determined by the state taxation department. One month’s advance salary payable at the end of first two working weeks.
Other benefits: you will see on Employment Agreement to be sent in our next email if your application is successful.
Flight and Visa arrangements:
N.B.: This applies only to employees joining our work force from abroad
a) Visa arrangements: It is the responsibility of our company to process visas, work permits and residence permits for all employees joining our work force from other countries. However, it is the responsibility of the employee (your responsibility) to provide the company with the necessary documentation for the procurement of their visa, work permit and residence permit. We will, however, provide you with the list of required documentation demanded by the immigration department in charge of processing the visa, work permit and residence permit.
b) Flight ticket and travel insurance: The Company will procure your air ticket and travel insurance. This is the sole responsibility of the company. Also, transportation from the airport to your accommodation will be provided to you by the company, through our staff who will welcome you at the airport.
If at the end of the three (3) months probationary period we do not deem it necessary to validate your long term full time employment, we will pay your air ticket and travel insurance for you to go back to your country of residence.
After this probationary period (of three months) if you provide satisfactory services and we validate your long term full time employment contract with us, we will provide accommodation for you in our company residential quarters where we accommodate all our permanent staff. This accommodation at our company residential quarters will then come to you free of charge. You will then pay only for your bills (electricity, water, and phone). Internet services for all staff residing at our company residential quarters are free of charge.
Please note, however, that because of disappointment from some employees, the company does not provide accommodation during the probation period and your accommodation during the probation period is solely your responsibility. 

Your accommodation during your first three months (probation period) will be solely negotiated by you. We do not make arrangements for accommodation for employees during their probation period. Part of the reason for this is that some employees proof to be competent from their CV, when on the actual job they have no skill, talent and/or experience. In the past we have even reserved accommodation for employees who never came to start work after signing their contract with our company.
 You will be moved into the company's residential quarters and provided with free accommodation upon successful completion of your probation period.
Thus, during the three months probationary period, you will take care of your accommodation. We have a few apartment rental agencies around us which we always recommend for all our employees, where they can get their accommodation during the three months probationary period. We always recommend these because they are of good standards, very safe/secure and at the same time, moderately priced. Also, we provide transportation services (from home to work and back) to our employees. So it is easier and better for us when the employees are in the same area. The only meal which we offer to our employees is launch during working days. So you will take care of your other feeding habits except for launch which will be provided during the one-hour break period every working day.
Please note: regarding the issue of accommodation during the probation period, you will in no way be obliged to go by our recommendation. You will be free to make your accommodation arrangements anywhere close enough to the job site provided it is safe and secure enough.

Now to proceed with your application, download and fill the application and interview form attached to this email. Then return the filled forms to us along with scanned copies of your relevant certificates/diplomas (if any) for consideration of your application. If you did not provide your CV/resume when contacting us with your initial employment request, please provide it as it will also play a role in the consideration of your application.
You are advised to be as concise and explicit as possible when filling the interview form. After studying your application and interview form, a phone interview may be conducted if we deem it necessary. So be sure to provide the correct phone number through which you can be reached during working hours.
We hope you will be an addition of an honest, industrious and efficient worker, who would certainly contribute in the uplift of our organization. Our dedicated team is here to advise you on every query. 
We look forward to welcoming you in Tabikeng Corporation.
My regards,
Robert Graham,

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 company, government, lawyer, travel agent or 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: 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!
