Chris has stated very directly that the job is offering positions that are impossible as the country no longer allows the visas
She has provided a link to the UK government site that states this quite clearly.
Of course, even if they didn't make those mistakes, the English with typical African mistakes, and once again the whole New York/UK thing would again be a giveaway--there are plenty of unemployed people in UK right now, and an employer would be able to find employees locally. Even if visas were possible, they would not have to recruit unskilled labor from the US. (Since this scam uses visa/document fees as the reason to collect money, the scammer does need to recruit victims from another country.)
But I have noticed that quite a few of your noted scams come directly from Sitter City.
There is absolutely nothing unusual about this. Many posters here are actively seeking jobs on job sites, and they post the scams they receive to help others avoid being scammed.
I'm not trying to imply that your wrong you could be right.
No "could be" about this. It is a scam. If there were any doubt, the supporting staff member who replied would indicate this, and we would remove the details or the entire post from our public forums. I am reiterating this very clearly so that visitors reading this thread are not misled into pursuing this "opportunity," only to lose their money, on the false hope that it might possibly be real.
But none of these examples asked me for my money upfront nor did I give them any.
Many scammers spend some time trying to make an offer look legitimate, only bringing in the money at the last minute. The fact that you weren't asked for money only means you didn't get that far in the scam.
Sitter City, now that's a different story. When I joined I was under the impression that I would only get legitimate offers.
This is an assumption that could lead you into trouble. As I stated in response to one of your other posts, NO job site that allows people to sign up and post, no matter how reputable, is free of scam offers. The sad reality is that scammers are everywhere--job sites, classified sites, dating sites, social networking sites. If there is a way to use a site to steal money, scammers will target it, period. And as site security evolves, scammers too evolve to find ways around it.
