Halliburton Oil & Gas Malaysia / Scam job offer

Malaysia Review updated:
4.95
This offer did not come from Halliburton.
I got an e-mail from a company, calling themselves Halliburton Oil & Gas Malaysia. They stated that they had found my resume on the web, and thought I was well qualified for their position of Senior Field Supervisor. I replied postively and the next day I received an offer letter and a contract (emblazoned with HALLIBURTON across each page). The materials looked so convincing, I truely thought it was from Halliburton. The person's name on the letter was Najib Muhamad. He ask that I print the contract, sign it, scan it, with a photo-copy of my passport, and e-mail it back to them. They would send me airline tickets when they received these items, and I was to travel to Malaysia.

I did not have a passport, so I e-mailed them I would have to wait until I could aquire that document. This was my saving grace, as I would have transmitted those documents to them then immediately.

There was one artivle in the contract I was not clear on due, to the language used. When I questioned Najib about it, he didn't give a clear answer. Needless to say, I felt uneasy and decided I had better check wit Halliburton in Houston, Texas. One of the high ranking executives with Halliburton informed me they did not handle job offers in that fashion, and I should not commit any information to them. They have their Security Force looking into it.

I do not know what the scam was, but would like to. If anyone can inform me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Never believe an unsolicited e-mail or an e-mail forward, it's that simple. You will avoid 99% of scams that way.

These scam letter that are offering poeple employment after saying that they got a hold of your CV on the internet are quite disturbing. I received one from "Halliburton" offereing me the position of Field suprevisor but was not very comfortable with it as they did not even offer to interview me for a position with such good benefits. I have always been applying for international jobs and maybe that exposes me to these unsrupulous people.

I will still continue to apply for international jobs though I am very careful and check out any offers. This has been my second major scam offer. I hope you continue alerting poeple like me to look out for these people.

Received such letter of agreement also but in view of all these good offer, I don't believe because the wordings are not clear and take note that the offer is so high for a supervisory position.

I'm a senior engineer dealings with design and consultancy works and the rate internationally
are not that figures, so I'm giving precautions to the people / applicants who are searching a job internationally that be smart enough to ignore such documents which looks like genuine and
legal to avoid any grievances in the future.

Thanks for all the informations and keep the goodness to all mankind.

More power and God Bless.

I recieved mail from Bar. Najib Mohamed that I had job at Halliburton Oil & Gas Malaysia as Senior Field Supervisor
He ask that I print the contract, sign it, scan it, with a photo-copy of my passport, and e-mail it back to them. They would send me airline tickets when they received. I did that and later they send me Invitation and appointment letter.
After that, he told me to contact "Immigration Services" for Visa and residence permit. After I had contact the immigration service, the immigration service send me visa form to fill and attached passport size picture and processing & visa fees of $850.88. I just recieved it right now so I decided to find out if it is 419 or fake.
Your swift responds would be very much appreciated

Friends,

Here's a piece of advice... Next time you received the same scheme ask for the official website of the company...If they don't reply that means a scam... Normally they use the websites of yahoo, gmail, hotmail, ect. Don't get over excited once you got an email like this...Use your mind over emotions or else you'll be a victim...And don't ever call them... Any company wishes to interview or hire you normally takes the initiative of calling you and not the other way around.
