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.

clarification about a Foundation in UK
I received an email from a foundation The Don Rich Foundation in Portsmouth, Hamsphire, UK for supply of 5500mt of Rice through their agent. In this connection after submitting our quotation, we were informed that we have been awarded the contract. Subsequently payments were asked by a lawyer who was nominated to represent on our behalf. There is high demand of nearly GBP20,000/- for documentation, TUC registration and lawyer fees. Kindly clarify whether this foundation really exists please? Thanks.

BRIGHT RICHARD GROUP OF COMPANY & TREEHOUSE APARTS HOTEL AND SUITES r fake job scams! Post the entire email you received from these scammers. 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 even for a visa or work permit! If they want you to pay and say they will refund the costs, you will just send money to a fake embassy official, travel agency or lawyer who is a really a scammer! Read: www.scam-job-emails.tk No real company, government or visa agent ever uses a free or public email address (yahoo.com gmail.com hotmail.com, aol.com, etc.) Email addresses like diplomats.com, counsellor.com, consultant.com, lawyer.com etc. are also free email addresses. Read: www.scam-email-addresses.tk No real visa agent ever requests money via wire to a bank account or by Western Union or MoneyGram. Read: www.never-wire-money-to-strangers.tk 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: www.scam-telephone-numbers.tk 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 www.scamwebsites.tk 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!

Attn harishdaniel
It is a scam! All house supervisor, house keeping, house cleaning, nanny jobs, private nurse, etc. jobs emailed from someone in Canada, United States, Australia and UK are scams. No stranger in another country is going to hire a stranger in another country who he can't see, and pay to fly them to their home and trust them with their family. It doesn't make sense. They could just hire someone in their own country who they know or could interview! Plus, they would not be able to get a visa for an unskilled worker when there are plenty of them already in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia or the United States!
