    Fully agree and same thing happened to my wife. Was expecting a quality CV and instead got a bad case of copy/paste!

    As soon as she mentioned that it was "necessary to get the job" I knew it was a scam; alas I was travelling so couldnt advise her before.

    They did the same to me, they lying indian women who promise heaven and earth and do nothing. they dont even answer the phone, and when you go to the office they take you away into a seperate room to talk so that noone else can hear what you have to say.

    They charge 300 aed to apparently do up your resume to send to the principles of the companies, but all they do is use the same format foo everyone. and they just waste your time putting the blame on the companies that they are taking along time to reply. all lies...

    They are prohibited from charging the employee...

    After receiving a call from Core Elements, I went along to their offices in Sheikh Zayed Road for an interview. The interview was supposedly "On behalf of the client". I was told that because it is high end consultancy and they place 95% of the candidates the management fee was 300 AED. I paid this, foolishly, only to be kicking myself later. After a few hours of beating myself up I went back to Core Elements and demanded my money back. To my astoundment, they reimbursed me immediately. Whilst I was their there was another grief stricken customer of Core Elements who was trying to get his money back. He was told that Core Elements would update his CV and guaranteed him interviews over the next 3 moths. Nothing was done he told me.
    End result; dont put yourself in a position whereby you pay for a job. Its the employers who pay the recruitment companies, not the jobseeker!!!

    If anyone has had a disagreement with core elements or feels they were not given the service they paid for, they should submit a complaint to the Dubai Police.

    There is currently a case open at the Bur Dubai Police station. Please go down there and ask for Mr. Yousuf in room 19 I believe. The case # is 2009/21264 and please bring all the proof that you have. Receipts, emails printed, texts. Anything.

    Hope that helps some people.

    Under the UAE Labour Law it is illegal for any company or employer to charge or try and charge any employee for any part of the recruitment or employment process: including agents fees, finders fees, commissions, medical fees, registration charges, labour deposits etc. etc.

    Any company contravening this can be reported to the Dubai Economic Department (DED), if enough complaints are made the company can have their trade licence withdrawn.
