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.

Kindly check this mail I received last january 22, 2013
to confirm if its true or another scam letter. I will attached their forwarded letter for your further review thank you


January 22, 2013

Without repeating the entire post, we will go through the salient details to show it is a scam job offer for the UK:

4. Remuneration
4.1 You will be paid £3,000.00 (three thousand pounds sterling) monthly after federal income tax deductions. The UK is not the USA, Canada, Australia or Germany, therefore it is not Federal Income Tax! And in any case, £3,000 per month net of tax s one hell of a good wage for what job, that is the equivalent of over £50,000 per year. It's a fake.

4.2 Other benefit includes free medical care for you and your family, three bedroom flat accommodations with efficient security, an official car with an experienced driver and a life assurance policy.
Wow, this some job, we will apply ourselves! Is it for a top manager in the company? It's a fake.

THE PHONE NUMBER
If you have any questions about the terms and conditions of employment, please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Alex Smith (HR Manager) on +447031952908
This phone number is a "portable" one. A typical London number would be 020 723 4*** or for users outside the UK +44207234***. A mobile number is 07*** 123456, however UK number 070** 952908 are what are called "portable" and instantly divert anywhere in the world, see that type of number and walk (or rather run) away.

Below is the contact of the licensed company immigration solicitor:
Thomas & Associates Law Firm
Specialist Immigration Solicitors
44 Shaffesburg Avenue,
London W1U3EB, UK
Contact Person: Barr. Thomas John
Email: barr.thomasjohn@hotmail.com
Tel: +44 70 3194 7551
Again the "portable" phone number, but also, any lawyer would use as the email address the company domain name, not a free email address like Hotmail, Yahoo or Gmail, it's not done in the UK.

You are to copy our human resources at hr@crystalstarhotels.com on all the correspondence e-mails with the Thomas & Associates Law Firm to enable us keep records. You will be notified on when to visit the UK consulate office in your country for the endorsement of your international passport.

We ran a check on this "hotel", first of all the contact numbers are "portable", and secondly, the address is Shepherd's Bush Market and an entrance to Shepherds Bush Tube Station. The "hotel" only exists in someone's fertile imagination.
