Dont believe and be fooled
Most of these jobs are posted by guys who copy the job descriptions and try to get clients from abraod.
Please don't pay money to these guys. look into the occupaton lists whether your category of the job is inhe Uk Border agency website. if at all you get any offer letter , apply with that letter to the Uk high commision once, you get visa, then pay the money.
another information, if you make more than 2000 dollars after tax in the uk is big money.. i dont thing any compnay who is hiring you pays more than 3000 pounds unless u are software professional or ceo. i lived in London, uk for more than 5 years. i know the situation, there are surviival jobs but now the situaiton is very bad... lots of cuts and layoff.. think about it, dont become prey for the West african guys (sorry for discrimination) who try all the sorts of thigns to get innnocent people's money. The clue is "western union" or money transfer , dont belive them..
contact me.. if you have any quieries ofmarun@yahoo.co.in
