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.

Good day!

I also received the same kind of email from the travel agency that the mercure hotels are tied up with. It is exactly how the others email was.

Please review them although we will give you the breakdown of all you need to know about the processing of your travel documents in this mail.

This equals a Total £325GBP (To be paid by you) Please note that the cost of Visa and Prepaid Flight Tickets has been undertaken by your employer. Also charges of Workers registration Scheme certification (WRS) and National Insurance (NI) will also be handled by your employer.
