Arab Contractors job offer is suspicious!
Post the offer you received and what email address it came from! Read and my other posts in the forum.

AFRA CONSTRUCTION is a fake job scam!
Please read carefully because this applies to every job offer you receive!  99% of email job offers are scams!  No real company hires you without an in person, face to face interview.  An email, online or telephone interview is always a scam!  No real company ever charges any money for a job  for any reason whatsoever!  Not for a visa or work permit, deposit, housing or courier charges! Read:  Scammers will ask you to send money to a fake embassy official, travel agency or lawyer who is a really the same or a different scammer!!  No real company, government or visa agent ever uses a free or public email address (,, etc.)  Email addresses like,,, etc. are also free email addresses. Read: No real visa agent ever requests money via wire to a bank account or by Western Union or MoneyGram. Read: No real company uses a telephone number that begins with +44 70, +44 871, +44 870, +44 844, or +44 845. Those are forwarding numbers which are not in the UK.  Read: If the company does not have a website or the website does not work, it is a scam!  Do not assume a website is legit!  Read  

There are no exceptions!  Don't let a scammers convince you otherwise!  A scammer is only as smart as his victim is naive!  If something sounds too good to be true, it is a scam!  Publicity defeats scammers.  Post the scam emails you receive and warn your friends  Always "Google" all telephone numbers, email addresses and websites in any job offer to see if it has already been posted as a scam!

I went to the website and send my cv on line to the email on the website.

After this they asked me to pay $1100(R13000.00) for apartment rental because they need the proof at immigration to release my worksvisa/permit. This is the info they sent me
For fast and quick response you can contact Limbe apartment rentals for your apartment reservation directly using their email

Phone Number : +237 73269699

As soon as you book for your apartment, your receipt will be used as proof of accommodation to obtain your traveling documents, certificate of residence in Cameroon and work permit. You are required to send to us via email the scan copy of the following document.
*Proof of accommodation. You just need to book your apartment and forward the receipt to us so we can use it to obtain your visa and certificates
Then they told me to pay $650(R7700) for Resident visa because the people at immigration need that to release my worksvisa/permit. At that stage every email and everything seemed legit to me I have checked everywhere to see if this was a scam and I could not find anything. I went to pay that as well. Then the same afternoont hey asked me for another $480 for some insurance that they only pay 96% and I must pay 4%. I said to them like on previous occasions as well I need proof of everything I am not going to pay anymore. They sent me a card that looked like a employer personal card and a paper that looked like a booking for ticket but there was no flight number on or confirmation number or anything. I told them they are a scam and they just keep phoning for the rest of the money and saying it was not a scam. Then I emailed the person for my money back at the hotel and he sent me this email back

The refund is very much possible.. We have various rules governing refunds of reservation deposit.
First, we have to ensure that you get a net amount of your money that is $1100. Your fund is fully ready for refunds. But before we proceed, you have the folowing charges to settle before any refunds can take place.
moneygram transfer charges of the total fund ($1100)..........740ZAR
apartment 2 occupied fee..............1000ZAR
Before we proceed in sending to your your refund, you will make you have to deposit this money before we can proceed. No reduction has to be made in your money.
Desmond N.
Managing Director
After this I said them whatever makes you happy deduct the money from the money you owe me and pay the difference in but he keeps on saying I must pay the R1740. And he will pay the full $1100 to me. I can't believe this This is a very well organised scam.
I hope this well help people not to make the same mistake I did. I also hope there is somebody out there that can possible help me. My email is
