Offered a job - is it a scam? (Abu Dhabi)
Brief outline first: - I posted my CV on Bayt.com several months ago looking for jobs in the UAE. Last week I got an email saying:
Dear Job seeker.
AL NOOR HOSPITAL is in need of expatriates that can work in various hospital fields listed below:
Below are the current and available positions where candidates are needed
And then there was a list of loads of jobs they're 'recruiting' for.
I duly replied with my CV and got an email back asking me to fill out a form and send a copy of my passport, which again I duly sent back.
Today I received an email congratulating on the job with a 'Contract' - few notes:
It is our official policy that our employees must pay for their work permit processing fees, as we have promised free visa to all employees and as a proof of the readiness to join our team, they have to contact the Halil Travel Agency UAE
UPFRONT PAYMENT OF SALARIES:
