Gulf Careers / recruitment - scam
I am from australia and was looking for work in dubai. I started looking for career portals and then gulfcareers.in came through. I applied for a job through their portal and I started receiving calls from a girl named zareen from gulfcareers.in and started stating that the companies are looking into my profile and I should have an interview in the next couple of weeks but in order for them to see my profile I must pay around $48usd and they will highlight my profile and get me an interview. They will keep chasing you until you make the payment and once you have made the payment then they are gone. You would get one or two response stating that they are speaking to employers and trying to get me an interview etc. This a load of garbage. They are scam artists and just need your money. As soon as they get your money they are no where to be seen.
People please be aware, should you get a call once you have registered in a job portal and they start saying:
1. That the employer is looking at your profile; or
2. The employer will pay you a high salary + accomm + travel + medical even before you have told them who your are and what you do; or
3. You hear a fake accent; or
4. They promise to get you an interview in a couple of days or a week.
Please note that this is a scam. I have been stung by 2 to 3 agencies:
3. Dubaijobs.net (almost got trapped into that one)
Please note non of these people can even hold a conversation properly, so the chances of them getting you a job is out of the question. When you get desperate you just think of paying some extra money to make your life easy (like me), but just donate it rather than give it to these scamsters.
When I sit back and think about it there were a lot of alarm bells going on but I chose to ignore them all as the money they asked was not significant.
Now my response to them is get me an interview first and then I will make the payment. As soon as I say that you can see them not agreeing to the deal and say they have to do a lot of work in the background. Absolute nonsense.
P.S. I know they scamsters are going to write positive reviews about themselves here. Please don't buy it.
Please do not fall for their gimmick and all the best in your job search.
