United Kingdom (UK) online jobs scam


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.
