    We really need more to look at than just a name. Like emails and what kind of jobs etc.

    Fraud Job Application

    Hi,

    I had applied for the position of Logistics Manager through http://www.bayt.com/en/pakistan/ for a confidential company. Later I have received job application form from below contact mail and I sent back the filled form.

    Rivers State, Nigeria
    E-Mail: [hr.dept@sedcopetro.com]
    Phone: +234-806-646-4867

    Later I received the contract and appointment letter from below. I have observed the e-mails addresses were different.

    In the mail, they have advised me to contact below address and below person asked me to send $350 for visa application.

    Furthermore, I have found below three website claiming that they are authentic websites of the company.

    No visa costs $350. Save your money and don't send it to these criminals.

    Of course they a criminals. That's why we put it here. You can't do business with them unless you want to send money to criminals.

    Employment Scams

    Hi,
    I also received the same documentation with a job offer, and confirmation, with a contract, and specified start date. I also received a telephone call from Umokoro Efe on Wednesday 23rd June with 2 questions, then he told me that had got the job, and an email confirming this would be sent to me.
    I have done a little searching and on 1of their pages they stipulate that they do not use hotmail accounts etc. I got a reply with a hotmail account & the excuse that their server was down.
    Entry to Nigeria can only be made via their High Commission in your country of residence and a form IMM22 completed, so it is a scam.
