And so we almost fell for the scam of work as Boilermaker in Ghana. First they ask for 100USD which unfortunately we paid, then today the want 1000USD for their protection that they will refund when you get to Ghana.
When they sent me the Visa and other docs I could clearly see that there was tampered with the stamp on the doc and other info was left out on the Visa. I sent them an email stating what I saw and they replied stating the following:

It is rather insulting you insinuate we want money from you.The company does not need your money to operate.This fee is refundable once you are in Ghana.It is a standard procedure as we are using so much funds to prepare traveling documents (air ticket,visa,resident permit,work permit,non resident card) as we have had issues of newly employed selling off their tickets and not coming,or coming for their own escapades. All foreign expatriates went through the same process and have families with them here or abroad whom they are responsible for.With regards to your supposed claim on our document,these are scanned documents and could not appear any other way.You are advised to stop insinuating any ideas that will tarnish our companies name.
Hoping on your usual co-operation to post out your document unfailingly today.

I sent an email back asking for the refund on my courier that we paid and no reply.

Please people, I know everybody wants a better future and we are struggling in South Africa to get ahead and then this happens. Be careful and don't pay!!!

Divan. don't pay more, they are a scam. How can it be possible that they pay for everything accept a courier fee. I told them that they can keep their job, because I knew it was a scam.They was so desperate that they Used a lady with the name Elizabeth Cole to send me an email to say they are legit. She also mentioned that she received a message from a friend and he saw my query on this site. Please guys, be careful to pay money in advance.

Thank You Constant Harmse. I also feels it is a scam and I told them to keep the work, because I am Not paying any money towards them. They also used another person to contact me and what this person told me, I could see, that they knows about this Web Embassy page, because I was told that this person received a question from somebody who saw my entry on this page. I only want to warn every one, who is using this page, to be careful, the scammers will do every thing in their power to get your money. Don't pay any money in advance. I was a Police Detective and saw a lot of these type of scams. When you pay, they disappear.

Good day
I got a job offer from Stallion Mining & Construction, I already paid 100USD for the courier to deliver my documents to me, I need to know should I be concerned that this is a scam or can I accept that this is a legit company and that I have the job?

VISA PROCESSING
I WANTED TO FIND OUT IF THE SOUTH AFRICAN CONSULATE DOES GIVE PROMPT ATTENTION TO CERTAIN URGENT VISA REQUEST? I AM IN A SITUATION WHERE AN INVITATION TO A FILM SCHOOL CONFERENCE CAME TO ME ON FRIDAY 15TH SEPTEMBER, AND I HAD TO TRAVEL TO JOHANNESBURG IN A WEEK-24TH. MY SUBMISSION TODAY OBVIOUSLY DOES NOT MEET THE TEN DAY PROCESSING PERIOD, BUT I HAD TO TRY HOPING THE CONSULAR MIGHT CONSIDER. HOW DOES ONE DEAL WITH THIS SINCE MY PRESENCE AT THE MEETING IS CRITICAL.
THANKS.

Scam
Any legitimate company will never ask for money during the recruiting process. Be aware of mails with a G-Mail or Yahoo address. If you have not had a proper interview either personal; Skype or telephonic - consider it a scam.

I can see they are real on Google. I applied for a work, 3 weeks ago. Today I received 1st a phone call from +233(0)274042119 and then an email, that I got the work. The director of Employment is Lucy Jones at tel +233(0)50937564 and the number +233(0)274042119. I would be grateful if some one can confirm that they are legit and they know Lucy Jones and confirm I got the work. At this stage I was told I need to pay the Courier fee for delivering the visa.

SABIL Mining and Construction Company
I received a job offer from Sabil m+c company. after all the correspondence they required that I transfer an amount of 590 USD for a medical examination before they will forward me the travelling documents . I must forward the money to a certain FAITH ANDERSON. This is suspicious, if it was a company why should I pay for a medical exam? if you google the company there is no Logo's or company brands to be seen. it seems to be photo shopped to create false impression
