Review updated:

My name is Prashanth,I'm from Bangalore,India.Last we I got a job offer from "Global Recruitment Agency" claiming I've been shortlisted and offered a job at Orange Telecom, Dakar, Senegal. They first asked me send following doc via DHL couriers like, 2 photograph, offer letter(which they sent to my mail id) and passport photo copies. I send the doc to respective location. To cross check the postal is correct i called up one of the telephone no. given in the offer letter and managed to speak to recruiter - Ahmed Mohammed (fraud) consultant and he said u have send more document and trasnfer 650 USD to Senegal immigration. I found the transfer details given was for a personal account but not to Senegal immigration dept.

Then i started investigating and found the email id which they used to send was black listed - "[protected]@senegal-immigration.com". Then i called up Senegal embassy india,New delhi and inquired and they said its one of the internet fraud. I was lucky enough be saved from being cheated.

I wasted Rs.2700 on my DHL courier charges. If you get any email from above consultants pls be careful. TIPS to confirm its haox or valid,

1) key in the email id in google and check the result show the email id listed in black list or 149 spam database.
2) with help of @immigration-senegal.com logon to www. immigration-senegal.com and check do u see a valid web site.
3) also call up to respective embassy at New delhi to cross-check.

I wish no one falls under such trap and pay huge sum of money!!!

Regards,
Prashanth.

    Hi everyone,
    I am currently getting e mail about a job from global medical recruiting. I have applied for the job of a senior epidemiologist. They replied and listed the documents I should send to them. Presently I have sent all documents and called the agent a lady by name Zelda and she assured me my documents will be reviewed and I will get a reply. This morning I saw this trend and a part of me still thinks they maybe genuine because of the exhaustive application process and mostly because the message the sent to me said they will not be charging me any monies as they are paid by the hospitals or agencies they hire staff for.
    What would you do if you are in my shoes?

    WARNING TO ALL MY FRIENDS HERE,

    Please be informed that, This fake consultancy have also introduced Resettlement sourcing and are scamming people's money. They will tell you to apply for Canada, America or UK and after 3 days, they send you offer letter showing that they got someone who will sponsor your resettlement. After that, they will ask you for an amount which is worth $440 for sourcing fees. There main interest is to take your money and will not receive calls after getting the amount from you.

    Please take care of this liars, they only want to make money out of innocent people by taking advantage over them.

    Regards,

    HR Executive / HR Officer for A Reputed CO. IN OMAN
    Varsha Consultancy Services (P) Ltd. hiring for FOR A WELL Reputed CO. IN OMAN - this was the title on naukri.com portal.
    I went for interview at their 104, SAI PRASAD COMMERCIAL COMPLEX 4TH ROAD, KHAR WEST, MUMBAI 400 052
    on 7-3-15, they asked for original passport along with documents, I said it was not asked in advertisement hence I am not carrying it. A representative said that you can come tomorrow, but from their senior I come to know that the client is not available tomorrow, it was fairly miscommunication/ misconduct with the candidates.
    They allow me to attend the interview but after waiting 1 hour without attending interview they said I am not eligible for this opening, it was really embarrassing situation. This job criteria was any graduate with 7-10 years of experience, but they were asking me for MBA for such a small HR officer job opening.

    Hello turkish friends,
    I wanted to have a standart english course in Uk and i applied to OZMAN company in Ankara. Normally its too easy prosses but i just felt lazy in that time and asked help from those people. But they cost me 5 weeks without doing anything. Promisses and promisses but there is nothing. They didnt even call me once. I was rushing insteed of them. I cancelled my aplication later on but they didnt even paid my money back.

    Just be carefull if you decide to go with a company. I did work whit this company but you see i had problem with them.

    Hi im an australian citizen, and the name short Hem. I found an add in the paper about jobs going for etihad and to a chance to work in ubu dubi. I gave them my resume, they said I was having an interview even though, they couldnt give me the place and date and time and were going to notify me on the day. to have the interview I had to pay a total of $345 so it would be confirmed. I gave them the money come the day, I never had the interview. called them up and I said I'd like my money back and they said we'll hold onto it until you have your next interview.

    6 months later no luck. and I call there direct number from there website, and for the past week i'v tried to call it everyday atleast 3 to 4 times with no answer. Now I see this and as for Global recruitment they are dodgy as anything. they have got my money and i'm still trying to figure out how I will get it back.

    does anybody know?

    This has happened to me quite a few times. What I normally do, and should also be everyone else's practice is ask the immigration office to charge the employer for all the visa processing fees and other fees. And tell them to deduct the amount from your first salaryways, good to hear that most of you were safe.

    Regards,
    Fouad.
