FRAUD!

BEWARE!

This is definitely a FRAUD (Advance Fee Fraud, 419 fraud).
I Forwarded the mail from these guys to Chevron Dept. & got this reply.

Please find attached the detailed Mails in decending order.

I'm sorry but this is not a genuine offer. Chevron does not make job approaches or offers in the way you describe.

If you are interested in possible job opportunities with Chevron please visit www.careers.chevron.com

Please also note the following alert on job offer scams:

Fictitious Job Offer Scam

Individuals will claim they are under contract with Chevron or a subsidiary to locate prospective employees for work on projects.

These offers usually are sent via email and will typically advise the victims they either have been hired by the company or may obtain employment with the company, and for a fee (the amount varies from $100 to as much as several thousand dollars), the individual will process the victim's employment papers, tender offers, job applications and work permits. Victims are usually requested to send their fees, via a personal check or a money order, to a post office box either in the United States or another country. In some instances, victims are promised or receive checks to cover relocation expenses. Such promises and/or checks are not made or generated by Chevron or in any way associated with Chevron.

This particular kind of activity is called Advance Fee Fraud or 419 Fraud. Chevron does not seek fees for securing positions with the company from either prospective employees or contractors. These are not legitimate Chevron job offers.

If you should receive such an offer, we ask that you report the matter to the police.

Texaco - Damaged car
Texaco
United States

My Dealer service was recently closed due to the recession. I had a little road trip coming up and wanted to squeeze in an oil change and tire rotation while I found a new dealer to service my Jeep. What a big mistake I made. Do not go to Texaco XPress Lube. While I was sitting in the lobby they somehow bent my tie rod by either running something over or on the lift. I noticed slight wandering and a tilted steering wheel son my drive back to work that day. When I returned, they would not my complaint. Nothing! What kind of policy is that? They told me to go to a dealer and get an opinion on whether or not they caused the damage. So this is how Texaco Xpress Lube works. They make you site where you can't really see them working on your car, so if they damage it, you can't see it and then claim no responsibility. This is exactly how it played out in court. The judge said I had a good story and everything seemed legit, but the evidence was all circumstantial since no one actually witnessed the damage. They also gave the judge a different story in court than they gave me. They wouldn't let anyone who actually worked at the station that that day come to court. Suspicious yet? After going to my new Dealer Service, they also said the tires were rotated incorrectly. In court, Texaco XPress Lubes admitted they don't check tread depth and that the customer is always right. I AM NOT A MECHANIC! It appears that their employees aren't either, not a single one, and they just switch tires around. My dealer changed all the tires back free of charge w/out even asking me. I had two sets of warning lights coming on and $1000 in repairs after going to these guys. Texaco XPress Lube employees are barely trained amateurs, not mechanics. I took my car back and they denied any wrong doing and would not accept a complaint. Do not go to Texaco Xpress Lube. I'm sorry to report that I lost my small claims (I'm not good at playing lawyer), but that doesn't mean they aren't guilty--THEY GOT AWAY WITH IT! Texaco XPress Lube is the McDonalds of car care! Make sure you get your fries with your order.

Texaco - Fraud
Texaco
Salford
England, Greater Manchester
United Kingdom
Phone: 01444 401141
tonibobgentle@msn.com

My debit card was cloned at one of your petrol stations at Salford service station, old field road, Salford, Manchester, m5 one by m53870833 t25583060. This happened on 20/7/2012 at 23.42. I have reported this to my bank, but you need to get this person before he does it to other people. He has no light at the front where you have to pay for the petrol. I could not see the card key pad for me to find the numbers when I put my card in. He firstly said that one of my card had been declined but in fact he cancelled it. Then asked for another card which has now been cloned at £2500. You must stop this happening to others. I am happy to talk about the whole experience

Texaco - petrol pump prices
Texaco
riviera
Paignton
England, Devon
United Kingdom

my email address is mojo_58@hotmail.com
The price for Unleaded petrol was advertised on neon sign visible from the main road as £1.29.9. With Deisel being marginaly more expensive. Thare are only two prices advertised on that sign.
At the pump I used there was only two options, One for deisel and one clearly marked Unleaded.
I filled my car at the pump with Unleaded and was shocked to find I had been charged £1.41.9 for my petrol. .
The attendant stated it was because I had used a SUPREME pump rather than the PREMIER pump!!! These words were written in very small writing on the pumps with no explaination as to what the difference is between the two!!!
The supreme pump is the first pump from the road and while I was compaining about this situation to the attendant another customer was outside making the very same mistake. This is clearly a diliberate attempt to mislead the public. It cost me about £12 - £14 more for my petrol would normally cost. The attendant stated this happens every day!!! I will be sending a copy of this to BBC WATCHDOG and I will post on my facebook page to warn people not to trust this company.
