    please be warned that a person whom IMPERSONATING THE STAFF OF HOME OFFICE UK is out in the web scamming all possible victim and Im one of their victims. Im posting this to let them stop this bad works. Please dont get carried away with their words. They looks like legit, but in the end they will ask for more FEES for whatever docs they say relevant to the application. DON'T BELIEVE.

    U.K . WORKING VISA

    UK Working Holiday Visa
    Validity: 3 years
    Eligibility: you are eligible to apply for a UK working holiday visa if you are a citizen of a Commonwealth country and are aged between 17 and 30 years inclusively.

    OTHER REQUIREMENTS:
    You must be single, or married to someone also eligible for a working holiday visa and plan to take a working holiday with you, You must not have dependent children aged five or over during your stay in the UK.
    UK Ancestry Visa/Right of Abode
    Validity: 4 years (renewable) for Ancestry Visa, indefinite for Right to Abode

    ELIGIBILITY:
    You will need to provide an original, or certified copy, of the birth certificate.
    You will also need to provide proof of your intention to find employment (a registration letter to you from a recruitment agency is sufficient) for the UK Ancestry Visa.
    Restrictions: no restrictions on type or duration of work for the Ancestry visa or for the Right to Abode certificate.
    Spouse Visa
    Restrictions: Dependent on spouse visa status
    UK Work Permit
    The difference between a Work Permit and a visa.
    A UK Work Permit is a document issued by the Work Permits (UK), a part of the Home Office Immigration and Nationality Directorate.
    The permission for an employee to enter and work in the UK is conferred by a UK Immigration or Consular officer who, following the issue of a Work Permit, may issue to the employee a suitable visa. The visa is an endorsement stamped in the employee's passport.

    Even if an employee is already working in the UK on a Work Permit, a new employer must obtain a new Work Permit before the employee can change jobs.
    Work permits are granted for up to five years.
    The length of the work permit depends on a number of factors which are normally more related to the employer and the job/project than the strength of the candidate. Our advice is that you should not worry if you get only a short term permit as it will normally be possible for it to be extended if you are still needed by your employer (and if you are not needed by your employer, you may well be able to find a new UK employer.

    Below are the summary applications,processing times, and the visa fees where are applicable.
    Application Home office Abroad .
    Marriage application .......... 6 days when you are outside the UK on a long-term visa (more than 1 week ) Yes, £350, 3 days

    (Please note that this is the establishment in uk whom i cannot find anywhere in the address they told me in the e-mail. Even i search by their website. They are using somebody's website in equadore, and in fact they are in london. Unbelievable. When i ask them by mail, why their website like this, they even insult me. And imagine i started paying for the work permit processing of 250gbp. Then im waiting for the 2nd step, when im asking them for advise, they say they have too much applicant viewing for this job they offer. And they gave me deadline in short notice. They collaborate with the person they are referring in the work permit.com address previously sent. Unbelievable. Looks like really a pro. Plase be warned, dont get hook up with this terrrrrrrrrible kind of neanderthals.

    See below pattern similar to ms. Puleng cooments.

    Or at least please help us find out whos this group. Maybe they are ok, or legit, but seems like all the info they give is out of this world info. I hope somebody can see to this thing.... God bless to all who see this notice!!!

    SO I ASKED THEM QUESTIONS TO GET MORE INFORMATION... PLEASE SEE OUR EXHANGED EMAILS BELOW:

    ===================================================================

    MY EMAIL:

    Dear Mr. Gerry,

    Pardon me if I will ask couple of questions regarding this permit. Please see questions below:

    1.) Is it ok to pay for these fee's when i get to London?

    2.) Or could be salary deduction?

    3.) What about my accomodation? Will the company assist me in finding one?

    4.) Is it possible to give me a valid telephone number for further queries? As I have been trying to contact the numbers given, but seems to me that I cannot get thru you?

    5.) I need to know when is the earliest date I can leave the country?

    6.) How much is the total payment?

    7.) Would you take considerations in letting me pay only when I get there? Let's be practical, I just need to know because there are so many illegal recruiters out there who takes advantage of the innocent people like me. But i guess, that your company is not like that.

    8.) What would I get, after I paid? receipt?

    9.) After I pay, how long will it take for me to get the visa?

    10.) Will you rate from 1-10 (10 being the highest), that I will be going to London?

    Thanks for your time in answering my questions, and I believe you empathize with me on this type of occassion. I will wait for your response.

    ===================================================================

    RESPONSE OF THE SCAMMER:

    U.K. WORK PERMIT.
    ATTENTION

    U.K. Work permit processing fee of 200 pounds are paid and the receipt of payment tendered before ,the commencement of procession of U.K. Work permit which will take 5-7 working days to complete its procession.As it is not salary deductable or paid installmentally.

    AND LASTLY, THIS IS WHAT HE GETS FROM ME! LOL!!!!

    Dear Mr. Gerry,

    Thanks for the fast reply.

    I would love to be in London, but I guess, I can make other employers pay a visa for me rather than pay it now. Money is not an issue, but I have a lot of friends who works in London and never paid any amount to get there. Thanks again for your time.

So am not that stupid sending money just for an email like this that is why I asked them to give me any contact person whom near with me rather than miles away...

    UK Work Permit
    The difference between a Work Permit and a visa.
    A UK Work Permit is a document issued by the Work Permits (UK), a part of the Home Office Immigration and Nationality Directorate.

    Immigration or Consular officer who, following the issue of a Work Permit, may issue to the employee a suitable visa. The visa is an endorsement stamped in the employee's passport.

    Even if an employee is already working in the UK on a Work Permit, a new employer must obtain a new Work Permit before the employee can change jobs.
    Work permits are granted for up to five years.
    The length of the work permit depends on a number of factors which are normally more related to the employer and the job/project than the strength of the candidate. Our advice is that you should not worry if you get only a short term permit as it will
    normally be possible for it to be extended if you are still needed by your employer (and if you are not needed by your employer, you may well be able to find a new UK employer.

    yes Gulamsaud, I have also received the same mail from that mother###er, I am very thankfull to you for saving me.
