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.

Ferguson Modular Limited is a 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 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 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! Always "Google" all telephone numbers, email addresses and websites in any job offer to see if it has already been posted as a scam!

VISA PROCESSING FORMALITIES/CONTACT DETAILS OF THE
BRITISH IMMIGRATIONS.



The Hard Copies of your Confidential Invitation Letter and other
Supporting Documents has been sent to the British Immigration Service
for their review and verification.
Kindly note the following Points:

1. PROCESSING OF U.K WORK PERMIT VISA

Job applicants MUST contact the UK Border Agency who are the
company's legal adviser on Immigration Matters request the
requirements for processing the U.K Work Permit Visa and other
supporting documents that will be needed for entry into London. All
Contacts SHOULD be made immediately as late application will be
detrimental and QATAR AIRWAYS will not hesitate to revoke these
opportunities as there are lots of Job applicants interested in this
opportunity.





Below are the contact details our immigration officers for the
processing of your travel papers.


BELOW IS THE CONTACT DETAILS OF THE UK BORDER AGENCY BELOW


UK BORDER AGENCY OFFICE
Public Inquiry Office -
Home Office, UK Boarder Agency,
PO Box 3468, Sheffield,S3 8WA,United Kingdom,
Contact Person: John Adams
Tel:+448712452380
Email: ukgov.visa@ukba-servicesonline.co.uk
ukba.enquiry@yahoo.com






2. RE-SCHEDULE OR EXTENSION OF JOINING DATE.

Job applicants MUST meet and submit all Visa requirements to the
British Immigration Service before any request for re-schedule or
extension of joining date can be granted. Applicants MUST note that we
will never grant such requests unless all Visa formalities MUST have
been met.

Applicants who do not require Visa to enter the U.K MUST submit their
Flight ticket fees to the British Immigration Service for the booking
and purchase of their flight from London city.
Applicants are to note that meeting all Visa requirements of the
British Immigration Service guarantees QATAR AIRWAYS of applicant's
seriousness and commitment to work for us.


3. APPLYING DIRECTLY TO THE U.K EMBASSIES WORLD-WIDE

it has come to our notice that most applicants prefer to apply
directly to the U.K Embassies in their various locations and when they
make applications, their Visas are usually denied especially Job
applicants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. When such visa
applications are denied, it takes approximately 90 days to re-apply or
make a second application and during this time, the Company will not
be patient or wait for such an applicant, we usually revoke their
offers immediately and recruit some other applicants.

Hence, to ensure that you pass through a hassle free Visa application
process to the U.K, We have affiliated with the Local Immigration &
Visa office here in London, the British Immigration Service. They will
assist you with the Visa application, processing of U.K Work permit
and other relevant Insurance and Travel packages that will be required
for your legal entry into the United Kingdom. See above for their
contact details.

Making an application with the UK BORDER AGENCY guarantees your Visa
approval and in a lesser time as compared with applications made
directly to the U.K Embassies. Once they get all your necessary papers
processed, they will fax copies of the same to the U.K Embassy in
applicants Country of location and such an applicant will be prompted
on when to visit the embassy with his/ her passport for the Visa
stamp. This is the easiest process for International employees to meet up
with Migration Formalities and join us as soon as possible.

4. IMMIGRATION EXPENSES, FLIGHT TICKETS & OTHER EXPENSES

Job applicants MUST bear costs for their Immigration expenses and
submit receipts of payment(s) for the purpose of reimbursement. For no
reason should Job applicants request that we shoulder such costs as
such requests will certainly be turned down.

This is sequel to our past experiences we had with some Job applicants
from Africa, Asia and the Middle East where QATAR AIRWAYS shouldered
all their Immigration expenses, paid them their Upfront Salaries and
till this time, None of these applicants showed up. The contact
numbers and emails they submitted are out of use at this time, we are
currently battling this case with their various embassies in London
and the case is on hearing at the London City Crown Court.

For this reason, the Management Board revised her International
Recruitment Policies which entails that all Job applicants MUST bear
all travel costs and on arrival to London, present receipts of
payments made and will be reimbursed accordingly. Any applicant who
finds this unbearable should forfeit this opportunity immediately.


5.REIMBURSEMENT OF IMMIGRATION EXPENSES, HEALTH CHECKUP & OTHER EXPENSES

All expenses made by Job applicants will be fully reimbursed on
arrival to London or if applicants meet all Immigration requirements,
we will send the Salary & Reimbursement application Forms for
applicants to complete and return to our Accounts department for
approval. Once approved, we will authorize our Bank to transfer funds
to any Bank Account designated by such an applicant.




6. JOB DESCRIPTION, HOTEL ACCOMMODATION AND FEEDING.

All details pertinent to this Job Offer, duties and responsibilities
will be made available to applicants on arrival to London for the
Orientation/ Training Program.

However, Hotel reservations/ Accommodation and Feeding will be our
full responsibility.

7. ORIENTATION/ TRAINING PROGRAM



There will be a mandatory Orientation/ Training Program on '10/06/2014

and Newly Employed staff is expected to immediately get their Travel

Documents and Visa ready as soon as possible to ensure
that you meet up with time.

During the Orientation/ Training Program, newly employed staff of
QATAR AIRWAYS will be enlightened on the Work out sketch, schedules
and time- table. All questions pertaining to newly offered Job will be
addressed during this period.

Additionally, newly employed staff of QATAR AIRWAYS will be made

QATAR AIRWAYS.
