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.

James Scott, is a scammer!
All house supervisor, house keeping, house cleaning, nanny jobs from Canada and UK are scams. No stranger is going to hire a stranger in India who he can't see, and pay them 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! No real company or visa agent ever uses a free email address. Read: www.scam-email-addresses.tk No real visa agent ever requests you wire money into any bank account or by Western Union or Money Gram.
