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.

Offer from Unique Hotel London is a fake job scam
read www.scam-job-emails.tk
All Hotel job offers to persons in countries such as India are fake.  No real hotel is going to be able to get a visa for an unskilled worker in a faraway country to come to Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia or the United States!  There are plenty of workers already in those countries for those jobs and you cannot get a visa to do unskilled labor.
