United Kingdom (UK) online jobs scam

Sponsored Links

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) advised job applicants intending to apply for a job in the United Kingdom to be wary of online offers that can supposedly send them to UK using only a student visa.

It was reported that the modus operandi of scammers is to send an email to UK job applicants with an invitation to meet in a Makati, Philippines office for a “face-to-face” interview. Those who “passed” the interview will then be asked to pay US$625 as processing or consultancy fee.

In exchange for a supposedly guaranteed 2-year multiple entry student visa, the applicant will also need to pay 2,750 pounds. They are also given a chance to pay only 750 pounds, with the balance payable once they have found a job in the UK.

Again, be warned. This is a SCAM.

    Friend, I can tell you straight away that you did the right thing by turning them down…. Myself and many others we have been fooled by them.
    Let me explain how:
    First they make you work an unpaid trial, after that they say that you will get 20 pounds for 1000 leaflets, the truth is you will never get the money!!!!
    Serious warning to all customers and potential employees, avoid them !!!!

    I worked for them for a couple of days, when I felt like I would be cheated, I’ve stopped and claimed the payment, guess what… I’m still waiting for it ….
    Here is their trick, first they say that you need to fill a form so that they can pay but it might take up to 6-8 weeks, after 2 months , no answer , called them… they said , sorry we lost the form, you need to fill a new one and wait for another 2 months !!! I never received any other form , and from that time anytime I tried to contact them they never answer my queries, it is more than obvious that they will never pay me and I’m not..
    the only one tricked…..

    Avoid them, that’s why they keep looking for people because nobody stays there ,
    you work 8 hours to deliver 1000 leaflets for 20 pounds that you will never get.
    On top you have spent travel expenses that you will also never get.
    Now, one question should have risen , how comes they charge customers 20 pounds/1000 delivered and that they pay the same amount to distributors? where is their profit? very simple they don’t pay the staff, they give you no contract, it is a so called self-employed position, you’ll never get the money……
    I can tell you something, they will go down, and I will spend all my efforts to warn everyone so that they fool no one anymore ….
    by the way , they turned their reviews off …. there is a reason why > all negatives …

    Do yourself a favour and avoid them!
