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.

I applied for a job in UK AT THE MAJESTIC GROUP OF HOYELS. I CALLED UP THE HOTEL AND SPOKE TO A GENTLEMAN MR. WILSON. HE SAID TO GET IN TOUCH WITH A LADY NAMES AYUSHI SEN WORKING AT U.K. EMBASSY MUMBAI AS per her words this is was she exactly wrote "We are the United Kingdom Border Agency Official, associated with The Majestic Hotel and British High Commission, New Delhi / Mumbai. All the process is applied on line, the process takes 10-15 days of time period.
I called up the hotel as well but the gentleman didn't sounded ENGLISH at all, as I can distinguish between accent's as a result of over 10 years experience in international BPO Business. Now this Ms. Ayushi is telling me to pay INR 25,200 FOR POLICE VERIFICATION ACROSS THE FOUR METROPOLIS IN INDIA. AND THEN WITHIN 10 DAYS THEY WILL CALL ME EITHER IN DELHI EMBASSY OR MUMBAI ONE. I'VE NOT PAID A SINGLE PENNY TILL NOW. SO A KIND REQUEST FROM YOU SAMARATIANS, IF PLEASE YOU CAN LET ME KNOW WETHER IT'S A FAKE OR GENUINE CASE.
B. I researched a lot it seems that it's genuine but please confirm the same. I'll be really obliged if you do so.

My personal story..............>

I got a call from somebody from some agent in India His number is 9821027756. He introduced himself as VFS global company agent from Mumbai (His language is not like British English, seems like some East European accent). In his email it says his name is Paul John. When I refer to his name every time while on phone he stammers (I suspected this is not his real name). His email ID is embassyvisa-gov dot uk at india dot com. He tells me to fill forms and emails them. I filled and emailed him. He wants me to transfer 250 pounds in INR 29870 to some other guy Debasish Guha. His account is in PNB bank in Alipore. Now I dont wanted to give money without authenticating who Mr Debasish Guha is ? I told Mr John Paul to give me any one of the documents: Aadhar, Passport, Election ID, Ration Card of Debasish Guha. He refuses to give the above documents but gives PAN number. I refused to transfer until I got documents. He then tells me he will call Debasish Guha to call me. After a while a lady calls me. She speaks in Hindi (An accent of Northeastern Indian teenager variety). She breaks after some time of conversation and blackmails me that she is a government employee and continues to speak in Northeast type of English telling me that so is Mr Debasish Guha. She says he is in urgent meeting. She tells me that I should accept her Identity proof and send amount to Debasish Guha. I argued a while and agreed. She told she will send her information via the agent. After a while the Agent sent me a passport scan. It says the lady is from Kanyakumari. Her name is Blessy and her passport number is P9182192. I being from Bangalore, knowing Kannada, Tamil, Sanskrit, Malayalam and Telugu such refined way, could not accept this voice of the lady as being that of a tamilian or any south Indian. Her age is 26 years and I am supposed to believe that she is a government employee! All this is a work of Gangs on JOB SCAM.

This website: gasdrogen dot com is a fake website.
