I have a very close friend of mine who recently applied for a job at Qatar Airways through the Qatar Airways website and was contacted via email with the following response:
" Dear Sir or Madam:

Later, he was contacted by a supposed member of the HR department from the following address:
Susan De Lima
Account Manager ( Head Office )

The 'agent' requested US$85 for the application to be complete.
Is this offer genuine? Or has anyone else ever experienced the same?
Your responses and advise is genuinely appreciated.
