Dubaijobs.net / its a fraud

2 Toronto, Ontario, Canada Review updated:
Contact information:

1. You apply for jobs listed on their site, most probably fake or copy pasted from other agencies. 2. Then they immediately mail you back saying your CV has been shortlisted and you have to pay up $85.00 to get registered and for the recruitment process to begin. 3. As you mull it over, they flood you with emails, saying your CV has been shortlisted, employers are looking at your CV, will like to conduct your interview, you have to pay up or your CV will be de-listed etc.etc. I got 8 emails in 2 days! 4. Once you pay up they send you an e-receipt saying the fee is valid for 6 months, at the end of which they will refund your money if you did not get a job. 5. After this there is no communication from them, no updates on the recruitment or other jobs. 6. I contacted them after a few weeks asking about the interview and 'employers are looking at my CV' crap, and the answer was rude and curt, "employers take their own time", their tone and attitude then becomes very derogatory. The email replies are unprofessional and all in lower case as if talking down to a kid. 7. After 2 months when I asked for a refund because I had found a job on my own, their reply was "wait for 6 months". 8. When I wrote back I am not prepared to wait and demanded my refund, they started issuing threats of taking legal action costing me thousands and taking me to court. When I checked on the internet, I was surprised and dismayed to see several blogs devoted to complaints against this site and other people also mentioned of being threatened with getting arrested at Dubai airport if they ever went there, blacklisting them with companies and the litany goes on... 9. If you call their Toronto number, nobody ever answers and if they call you back it is with disguised numbers. Having talked with other people, it seems that thousands have been duped already and these scamsters are cleaning up a neat amount every month. I suspect they do not have any physical office at all and there are just 1 or 2 guys running this internet based fraud.

    I too received this same e-mail of paying up $85 to continue the services and that my resume has been requested by 71 employers on the first day. And by the next day I received 3 other mails and the number of employers increased to 200. Which is when I became sceptical and read this post. Thanks for sharing your experience coz you've just saved me the trouble.

    dubaijobs.net what a great career firm, i have used many agencies in the past, they are really good, i received a job offer after 3 months, i think thats very good, it shows they work and help candidates with the very best they can offer, experienced staff, and great customer service team, anyone who says dubaijobs.net is not good, they must have bad qualifications and poor English skills

    dubaijobs.net was considered my first choice when i started looking for a new job in Dubai, there were many websites, however, that fact that i can speak to someone in their office, made all the difference for me, i called and they would give me great hope, i was in a desperate situation, i was in Dubai with no job, within 2 weeks, i have 2 job offers, it was amazing for me, this is now 2 months later, I'm happy here in Dubai and i thank the Dubaijobs, net team for helping me is such a desperate time in my life

    Dubaijobs.net is a good company for those who are looking for jobs. Here you will always get the opportunity apply to top employers. You will also be given easy access to jobs and more resources. People here are always willing to help you become a better person and more successful. You may have to work for a bit longer and sometimes a little more than you are expected to but the benefits will always be plenty. However you must be prepared as it will be hard to keep up with everything. Dubai is a great city and dubaijobs.net was really very helpful with my job search, i will use them again in the future

    I have worked with dubaijobs, net for my job search, recently transferred to the new office in Dubai, and it was the best decision I ever made. The growth opportunity coupled with the fun, hard working environment, and the ability to make as much money as you want is like no other job I have ever had. i was a member for about 5 months, but it with worth the money and my time, i did get great job offers in a timely manager, good job portal, thank dubaijobs, net staff

    yes the poster is correct, getting a job in Dubai, you must have a good CV and good English skills, most of you people, English is not your first language, you can blame all the agencies in the world, however at the end of the day, its only you to blame, dont blame agencies for your lack of skills, blame yourself

    Scammers, stay away, they post fake positive reviews, all these positive reviews belong to one person, all have same IP number.

    Their response when I said credible job placement companies charge the client not the job seeker. They are clearly fraudsters.

    i used that company dubai jobs and found a good job using their portal, maybe people who complain have non employable skills or they cannot speak English well, so they fail interviews with employers or employers dont want them, i had a good experience and thought i would even use dubai jobs services again in the future, remember dont apply for jobs if your skills are not good and you are not employable, you must have a good resume and must speak English well, Dubai will not hire you otherwise

    This has been my reply to my question why I should pay for recruiting costs of some company. If a company is (truly) interested in me, 85 USD is nothing as recruiting costs and they should be able to bare those costs.

    I had a great experience dealing with Tom and his team at DUBAI JOBS. Tom and his team are very professional and had well educated responses to all my questions and concerns regarding my membership. I would highly recommend getting in touch with dubai jobs if your looking for high level of personal service and the highest demand for jobs in the UAE region. his team helped turn my incomplete vision of job hunting into reality, and salaries based on my skill, even more spectacular than I could have ever imagined. They were knowledgeable and helpful throughout the application process

    Dubai is a city you need to have experience and good english to get a good job offer, thats a fact, you cannot come here with broken English and expect to work in a proper position, Dubai jobs helped secure such a position, the company is really good and they have been around for a long time, so they are very secure to use, i do fancy dubaijobs.net and have used their services to my benefit, Clarisse potter

    I just got call from this agency, and she asked me to open my email and transfer the money as soon as possible. When I said I'm not at home yet so I can't do transfer, she sounds like unhappy and ask me when I can transfer the money. I even hear her sigh from phone when I ask her to call tomorrow morning.

    Dubai Jobs was a very useful agency for me, as i live in Japan and wanted to check the UAE, i gave their online process a try, received several phone interviews with employers and 2 job offers, my low down is that dubaijobs.net is a good company, you wont find any other agency so enjoyable to work with

    @jillyqatar This is all fake. God shall punish them for defrauding people who are eager to get a job. I was told my CV has received 1, 176 boost so I should pay some huge amount to be interviewed and get employed. They persistently worried me with a lot of their emails to pay the money. The moment I paid the money I dont hear from them again. This is the first time I have been duped but it is a lesson to me. So please never respond to their emails.
