Thumbs up cameco corporation??? help PLS!!

Hello wiseones,

I was applying for positions on dubizzle and got a reply from a gmail account with the following information. The format of the email, makes me a bit suspicious. Could someone tell me if they have received something similar or if its legitimate?

I searched on the internet for cameco corporation. There is one uranium company in Canada. Is there anything in Dubai by the same name?

Here's the content of the email. I did not change the font sizes or colors

I wouldnt trust a gmail account. Ask them straight away if they have a website and where are they located here in dubai. You would not want to travel to Ajman only to find out it is a sort of scam

I doubt an organization of that calibre would be using a gmail account to recruit.

I would imagine that at the interview you would be required to pay some sort of "visa processing fee" to secure your position witihn the company.
It would not take much imagination to create a fictitious setup that takes say 500 AED from each candidate - never to be seen again.
Run this scam for a few weeks, fleece a number of jobseekers and then move onto the next scam!

Cheers
Steve

It's appalling really. If you feel "up to it", you should actually report it. This is not legal and it would be easy for the police to arrange an undercover operation (in fact, they would probably be delighted to do it to prevent unwitting people being fleeced like this!).

I wish I knew how. Today there was the same email for another opportunity posted on Dubizzle. They are utilising the free ad facility available on Dubizzle. The only difference today was the company name was changed to Onex corporation and the HR name from Huma Qasim to Sana Mirza. Also, on the Dubizzle ad, the name of the company is mentioned as British Cargo and this time the opening is Cargo helper. The pay listed is 5000-7000 AED, I think to grab the job hunters attention.

Wish someone could stop these b&**%#ds from cheating poor people.

At least report them to Dubizzle. Send them an email with the URLs of the ads, explain what you think is happening. They will sort it out.
