Dear sir,
I would like to know that last week I recd. An e-mail from id marriotthotel2000@yahoo.co. Uk & the contact person was sir powell c. Phone no. [protected] & [protected]. He gave me 21 questions to solve on e-mail.
I did & sent it to him within 72 hours as asked. He then asked me to join his company as front manager. And also my best joining time at marriott. I answered him that I cannot join before 15 th of june 2009. After my reply I did'nt received any of his response on this. After one week again I received my appointment letter on my e-mail and asked me to sign one page & send him as a token of my acceptance for the same.
He asked me to contact mr. Claire tuhey his e-mail id is britishcouncil. Claire_t@asia-mail.com & his phone no. Is +91 [protected]. He told me that 30, 000/- indian rupees will be required in the process of work permit visa and other paper work claire tuhey called me twice in one day on my cell and asked to transfer him the money when I refused him to pay such big amount he asked me to transfer only 10, 000 rupees only. I look this as one of the biggest fraud & scam can you pls. Help me in this regard by finding out if this company is registered in united kingdom
Sir, can you help me in this regard by finding out if this is not the part of scam & I have not been misguided.
Awaiting your kind response on this.
Thanks.
Warm regards,
Rajnish tripathi.

    thaks for the information every one. i got the same msg and i was trying to send money to clarie tuhey bank to bank and i asked him IPAN(international permanent account number) no. he asked me to send money by western union then, i got few doubts and then i checked in the net, there is so many complaints about him & co...it is really disgusting...if it is true all the contact number and email ID should be same but it wasn't same and they don't have the proper email id from the management( all id from yahoo, live, Gmail).
    i realised it is fake and i am in London so i am going to complain about them in management of grosvenor kensington hotel.

    Hello Guys... I am sorry for the people who have been cheated by this scam group. I am from London and i have been to the Marriott Hotel . this Group has nothing to do with the prestigious Marriott Hotel . I have seen the Interview format which they email, how can u trust such a fake format and a hotel like Marriott will never interview u like this just to save the cost ...

    Sirs, 2/12/2009
    Within the last two weeks, I have received similar emails from Marriott Hotel, regarding job vacancies in various fields. When I checked as to whether this is a scam or not now, it appears that it is like so. This is nothing else, but to squeeze money from persons who simply believe that the offers are genuine and become prey to that. Hence, in my opinion, I do not propose to give any reply to such kind of scams as once I had become a victim of such a scam. It is high time that such types of scams should be estopped by resorting to available and appropriate legal proceedings against such scammers and I wonder, why it is impossible to do so! If Websites like you can assist in the process, it would be a lesson to be taught such persons whereby innocent persons would not become prey to such unscrupulous minds. Please look into the matter, if possible, a reply from you will be highly appreciated.
    Thanks.
    N.S.Sreeraman.

    Hi forum,
    Been reading the postings and finally could conclude one thing, "Damn it, fools like you deserve to be cheated".
    Use your brains, can any company would recruit like this? Do you think that the immigration offices at British Deputy High Commission would use their A/c to accept the VISA fees? Do they keep on giving their call numbers to any Tom Dick & Harry? Would they use free e-mail accounts like yahoo, gmail etc?
    I still wonder, non of you have taken a step to launch a police complaint, you are just shouting around of getting cheated. That is why I conclude once again " FOOLS LIKE YOU DESERVE TO BE CHEATED".
