    I got the same thing: an job offer through Monster.co.uk to work at Emirates Airlines Group. Same thing, address, processes...I found kind of weird to be hired without any interview but I was curious and did the whole process till no money was involved. As soon as I sent all my required documents, they start ringin me 2, 3 times a day in the most wired times (like in the middle of the night and so on). So i decided to google the traveling agency and found that everyhting was a fraude. Take care people! I'll alos write monster.co.uk to tell them about this.
