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.

Application assistant cook for macdonald burlington hotel,is this scam?
I sent an application to certain macdonald burlington hotel,just by sending resume and other docs they hired me,they already sent me an email of work contract and how to process was suprisingly fast on responding on my application,with out any verification on my credentials and work certificate,or even without online interview,just by sending my resume.Is this job recruitment true or a scam? Thank you very much,looking forward for your response.

is this true??
Im leela from Philippines, may job offer kasi sa akin from UK as a nanny.we've meet in a social site.Nag pm sya sa akin na interesado ba ako, reply namn ako kasi nghahanap din ako ng work.That time nag register ako sa Aupair then timing din dalawa sila ng hahanap ng nanny na meet ko sila sa tagged. He is Downey Jackson He refered me in a travel agency in UK.( Then nag mail ako sa agency they need scanned passport,scanned photo passport,birth certificate. As of now di ko pa na send peru merun na akong requirements. Ang lahat ng processing fee is 1400pounds.He said ( Am sorry i can't shoulder all the expenses because the British office here warn that any employee outside UK must take part in the visa processing because some employee get the visa and run away when they get here in the airport,that is why is like that dont worry all your expenses will be refund when you get here, all i just want is for you to get here first and the only help i can do is to shoulder 60% of the visa expenses and will also shoulder your plane ticket and free accomodation, you will be the one to shoulder the rest 40%.) at nag nanaman sya na 70% sa kanya akin 30% lng mabayaran ko.. still confused pa ako as of now, Please help me kong anung gagawin.di ko pa na send yong docs. kasi ipa scanned ko pa photo passport ko. Nag ask ako sa kanya if ever ma kompleto ko ang mga requirements saan ko ipadala ang money he said requirements first! Then nag send sya photos nya and his daughter.hmmm Actually dalawa sila ng hahanap din ng nanny yung si Steven Stan refer nya ako sa nga lang ako sa visa fee magbayad mga 600pounds. Please advise me ano gagawain! thanks..GOdbless...

May nag offer sa akin ng work online.Totoo ba ang nag process ng visa sa UK Lawyer?Pag may employer pwede sila magpadala ng application outside UK na pirmahan at ibalik sa kanila para iproseso ang papers makakuha ng visa at apply ng workpermit?pagkatapos i send nila ang lahat ng documents by mail at gagamitin sa pag alis natatakot ako baka hindi totoo.SCAM lang may babayaran daw na 350 pounds para sa taxes

Nanny Job
Hi I've got the same message from Nicole Atkins, she even added me on her FB:
I am Atkins Nicole and I am married to Peterson Atkins. Our daughter is Oliver Atkins. She is 3 years old. I am a lawyer and I have been working for the U.K government for 8 years now. I am a solicitor in the Appeals Commission. My husband is a construction worker.
We are going to pay you 550 pounds per week.
My husband and I want to know how many years experience you have in child care?
Are you really interested in working here in London? Please, Introduce yourself and your family.

the second msg:
We kind of like you already because you are experienced as a mother.
Do you have a certificate in midwifery, aupairing, babysitting or caregiving?
Are you really interested in this job because my husband and I are not ready to play any games at all.
We just have to first make sure you are right for our angel.
Do you smoke and drink?

this is her last message to m,e just last night:
You have to process your papers immediately. You know why? You have to process immediately so you can secure the job for yourself, so you dont loose it. When you get your visa, we will be assured we have a nanny, this is our assurance and your commitment also.

I will like to inform you we have accepted to employ you, no doubt, we trust that Oliver will be in your good arms. We need to start with the visa process immediately. Its good you are Filipino, I have a Filipino friend which I just told about you. She works in the embassy, she can process your visa. I have told her about you just now, she says you can get your visa in 10 days or less. Lets start as soon as possible.

I know she will get your visa immediately, so dont worry. All you have to do is send her your requirements but first, ask her what your requirements are for obtaining a U.K work visa. I have told her already but just introduce yourself and tell her i referred you. She is very reliable and nice.
Her name is Mrs Lily
Email her now and give us feedback on that.
Use yahoo or any other email account to email her because she is not on facebook.
