SCAM JOB OFFER !!!!!! Beware pakibasa !!!!

Why Most Emails Offering Jobs Are Scams!
Read the Article on Fake Job Scams in the Malaysian Star Newspaper click here >>> Page 1 Page 2
Please read this article on identifying a scam email click here ---> (click here) then in addition to things like bad grammar, poor spelling, even poorer punctuation, the use of free email servers, etc. these are some other things that might mean your employment email is a scam.
In the advanced fee fake job fraud the scam employer is going to create many advance fees you have to pay before you get the job and/or work visa, because there is no job or visa! All you will do is keep sending in money until you realize you are being scammed so realize it now and save your money! Scammers advertise scam jobs on many legitimate online job sites who do not realize the jobs are scams so do not trust a job just because you see it online!
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 scam!
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 scam!
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: 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 scam!
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 ", check the date the domain was registered. Read: or Identifying Obvious Scammers and Fake Websites! If it domain was registered recently, the "company" is fake there is no job, its a scam!
No real company, government, immigration department, high commissioner, court, solicitor, barristers or attorney or embassy ever uses a free email address such as,,,,! That includes ones like, % [WARNING: SCAM EMAIL],,,, 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 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 ---> The United Kingdom fake visa warning. click here ---> 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 scam!
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 but their website will be a free email address or something other than "" 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 scam emails. Fraudwatchers keeps job scams in this thread:

please help,is this scam or real?
Hi,good day...I met this man Mr. Brian Cowan in one of social networking. He offer me something, I just want to know if it is true or scam? and he give me also this email address who will be process my documents help,'cause i send already almost 1000pounds to this agency. Thank you.
Below,stated His message to me last Oct.14'13

I really want you to know who Mr. Brian Cowan is if you haven't gotten a scope of the kind of man i am. I don't know where to start from but I'll just say there's no too much drama in my background. Am from United States, i stayed in Batesville Arkansas before i was been transferred here to work and i had to relocate to the UK. It has been nice staying here in UK so far and i have really enjoyed it here with my work and my kids too. My wife died two years ago, she suffered a heart attack which made her loose her strength this particular day she gave up the ghost, it was real pathetic leaving me with a 2 young kids. Ever since then I've never been happy because Sheryl was my better half, i can't really do without her, i got so much used to her, even when she got Mary and Linda in her belly. My kid names are Mary and Linda; they are 6years and 4 years.
I don't really know what to do right much about myself, but i must tell you this, am just a single parent here, simple, gentle, easy going, am God fearing and a honest person. i don't fool people and won't like to be fooled by anyone, on internet here. Am not that kind of man and will never engage in such activity. All i just want on here is a good hearted and a God fearing woman, who can put my kid through in life. I want you to deal with me straight here so that everything will work out fine and you'll be getting here in no time.

More so, i will like to see your resume and your passport. It’s quite good for me hiring you as my kid nanny and a gardener that will be helping me in taking care of my gardening i do hope you will be able to take good care of my kid for me.

Your duties are as follows:

1-Supervise breakfast with my child in the morning and get her off to school (Collect my KIDs from school at 3.40pm.)
2-Supervise homework, music practice and fun activities or take my child to after school activities.
3-Occasional weekend work would be offered by prior negotiation. I normally leave for
Work at 7.00am and get back at around 6.30pm although some flexibility is useful.

I am offering a live-in position with full board (we eat well in this house!)

1-Separate Toilet and Bathroom.
2-TV,different types of video machines.
3-Personal computer already Internet on. e.t.c for you and i will make sure everything goes on well with you, with my kid.
4- I am willing to be paying sum of 850pounds per week and monthly shopping allowance

Don't worry about the United Kingdom, it’s a nice place to stay and i hope you will enjoy staying here with my family and you will have the access to internet, In fact i have a personal PC at home for myself but my kids usually play games on their own PC, i will get you a computer to start using for your own use. All expenses made by you will be refunded immediately you get here. If you would be using the travel agency i would be recommending my traveling agent to you.
I will tell you about the agency that will be helping you process your papers; you can only mail them through their mail address at
The agency is competent and capable of getting you a working visa here, you know i have used them before and that's the more reason why i want us to use them again, and they have been helping in getting a visa for people working here. Please do email them to know the requirement for a working visa down to United Kingdom.

I will be helping you shoulder 70% of your working visa down to London including your plane ticket down to London hope you know the reason of doing this?.....i just want to be sure you are getting to me here in London and as soon as you have gotten here i will refund the processing fees back to you.

Get back at me here in my email and let me know.
Regards and God Bless,

Mr. Brian Cowan
