NotesBeware of emailed job offers for childcare and other similar positions in the UK. These are all frauds.

• Since November 2008, no visas are granted for household workers from outside Europe. Work visas are only granted for highly-skilled positions, most of which require university degrees.

• No legitimate employment agency in the UK requires you to pay them any money. All fees would be paid by the employer.

• No legitimate employment agency in the UK uses a free email address from Yahoo, Gmail, or similar services.

• No legitimate employment agency in the UK uses a telephone number that begins with +4470 (070). These are non-geographic numbers available to anyone in the world.

• No legitimate business requests payment via Western Union.

so, another problem again...where do i find 400pounds?
after the payment, the travel agency send me this message:

DEAR APPLICANT,

We wish to inform you that we received information from the Home Office of B.H.C (British High Commission) Head Quarter today that a new policy has been put into force to regulate genuine working applicants coming into United Kingdom.Thus, Applicant(s) applying as an Employee to United Kingdom must deposit a Total sum of 800pounds to the Home Office of the BHC (British High Commission) Head Quarter here in United Kingdom.This is mandatory for anyone coming to work or study in the UK.

We have been able to make more inquiries on how to get this policy for all EU citizen and non-EU citizens coming to work in the United Kingdom and here are some of the information's given to us.

An inquiry about deposits for all Au pair/Nanny was made by Visa World from the BHC (British High Commission) head quarters that a policy as been made for any applicants who is an EU citizen or other countries that are applying as an Au pair/Nanny to United Kingdom or even to study and also work must deposit the exact amount of 800pounds per head to the BHC (British High Commission) head quarter here in United Kingdom.

Firstly, Any EU citizen or other countries that are applying as an Au pair or even Nanny to United Kingdom must deposit the exact amount of 800pounds to the BHC (British High Commission) head quarters here in United Kingdom.

Secondly,This deposit is refundable after you get into United Kingdom in your host family house then you must report with your employer to the nearest BHC in the UK to get your money back immediately.

Thirdly this policy was made to check and control genuine applicants coming to the UK as many applicants (Au pair nanny or anyone who wants to study) come to United Kingdom to work but most of them never report to their host family or even to their school of study but they rather prefer to be at large and never contact the host family or the school again.

Please note that this money 800pounds is totally refundable and is just to show that you are truly coming to the UK to work and not to abscond after getting your Visa and as soon as you get to UK at the host family residence all you have to do is to report to the UK embassy with your employer to get back your 800pounds.This is the last payment we will ask from you before releasing your paper back to the DHL for delivery. Hope this is clearly understood.The deadline for this is 05/11/2013

The immigration will ask about this from you and also an invoice at the airport or all other security places and if you don't show one they will have to send you back to your country immediately so it is better to deposit the 800pounds so that you won't have problem with the immigration at the airport when landing and also so that we can finalize your working registrations .

So we urge you to inform your host family about this and we shall also inform them too we wait for your positive response. The deposit must be send to us or your host family to register for you so that we can forward it to the Home Office of BHC Head Quarter Here in United Kingdom.

Thanks for your co-operation and understanding in anticipation of your response.

and also the DHL send me another message:

100% SCAAAAAMMMMM !!!!! MAGBASA BASA !!!!!
No real job requires any kind of fee, including administrative, visa processing, work permits, certificates, authorizations, "Affidavit of Guarantee", "Letter of Attestation", "Affidavit of Oath" "Affirmation", or other legal or immigration fees. No real company ever requires you to make a "refundable" deposit before you are interviewed. No real company says it will reimburse you for expenses! As soon as you are asked to pay any money for anything, including a visa or work permit, that tells you there is no job, its a SCAAAAMMM!!!!


No real company hires anybody without a personal interview, face to face interview, that means meeting with you in person! Not a "written questionnaire" or "over the telephone. No real company "appoints" you to a job based on your resume, CV or work experience without interviewing you face to face! Scammers come up with many reasons why the job doesn't require a face to face interview, but they are all scams. The real reason is they are in another country of if you met them you would know the job was a scam. If they don't personally interview you, face to face, there is no job, its just a scam! If you don't actually meet or see your new employer there is no job, its just a SCAMMMMM!!!!!


No real company has a telephone number that begins with +44 70 or +44 (0) 70 or +44 870 or +44 871 or +44 844 or +44 845. There is no job, its just a scam! These numbers are forwarded to another location so scammers use them to pretend to be in the United Kingdom when they are really using a cell phone in Nigeria! Read: www.scam-telephone-numbers.tk Remember that scammes will try to disguise these numbers by grouping them a certain way or adding zeroes. As soon as you see one of these numbers, there is no job, its just a SCAAAMMMMM !!!!!


If a company or government agent or barrister, does not have a website, its a SCAM.If the website doesn't work, its a SCAM! Always ask for a website and if they say its under construction or maintenance, etc. its a scam! It was most likely removed for fraud! Don't let some scammer convince you that there is a temporary problem with their website. Many fake job scammers use fake websites and fake email only domains. If an employment email refers to a website or the email address is something like "recruitment@gascompany.com, check the date the domain was registered. Read: www.scamwebsites.tk or Identifying Obvious Scammers and Fake Websites! If it domain was registered recently, the "company" is fake there is no job, its a SCAMMMMM!!


No real company, government, immigration department, high commissioner, court, solicitor, barristers or attorney or embassy ever uses a free email address such as @hotmail.com, @live.com, @yahoo.com, @gmail.com, @rocketmail.com! That includes ones like @asia.com, @consultant.com, financier@.com, @lawyer.com, @diplomat.com, @minister.com. Scammers use free email addresses because they can easily chose ones that looks like a company's email address and they can remain anonymous. Click and read: Official Looking Free Email Addresses Scammers Use! and www.scam-email-addresses.tk As soon as you see a free email address, anywhere in the email, it is always a scammer, not a real company or agent or government and there is no job, its just a SCAM!!!!!


No real company sends you to some agent, embassy official, travel agency, diplomat, counselor, barrister, high commissioner, etc. to get a visa or work permit. No real company or governmental official ever sends you a passport. Those are always fake. There is no way to know whose passport it is when you cannot actually see the person.
You get a visa and/or work permit yourself from the proper embassy or consular or high commissioner and it costs very little! No real company or government ever requests you send them money via Western Union and/or MoneyGram or Bank to Bank transfers. Read: Canada's fake visa warning which would apply to all countries! click here ---> http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/media/notices/notice-fraud.asp The United Kingdom fake visa warning. click here ---> http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/aboutus/scams/ Click and read: Western Union/MoneyGram = Fraud / Scam! and Don't Pay Strangers Using Bank Transfer! As soon as any of this happens, that tells you there is no job, its a SCAMM!!


Fake job scammers will also impersonate real companies by pretending that that company's website belongs to them and that they represent that company. However, the email address they use will always be different than the one on the company's website. For example, the company website will be www.construction.com but their website will be a free email address or something other than "hr@construction.com" Click and read: Identifying Scam Email Addresses!
Real companies do not look for workers in other countries! They simply hire workers in their own country! Scammers offer fake jobs to people in other countries so there is an excuse for an advance fee, in other words, a visa, work permit, plane ticket, affidavit, license fee, etc. When you get a job offer from a "company" in another country that requires you to get some kind of document, work permit or visa, there is no job, its just a SCAM !


Very few real companies use mobile telephone number. Scammers almost always use pre-paid mobile numbers. You can check the telephone number of the company here: Click and Read: International Mobile Phone Numbersr or here Numbering Plans and input the telephone number then click "analyze." Many scams come from Malaysia and India. Malaysian mobile phone numbers start with 1 (+60 1xxxxxxx) Indian start with 9,8, or 7 (after the country code of +90) If the telephone number is a mobile, assume it is a pre-paid mobile and there is a good chance there is no job, its just a SCAM!!!!


One huge indication of a scam is a job which offers a great deal of money or benefits which are much more that what is normal for that job. By doing this, the scammer attracts more victims. If the job offers much more than it should, there is no job, its just a scam!
Google everything about the "job", the email address, the telephone number, the company website, the company name, and many times you will see its a scam because its already been posted as a scam. Scammers frequently uses the same telephone number in their scams and many anti-fraud bloggers and forums post job scam and job
