Dear xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Thanks for reaching out to us regarding your immigration procedure. The process is straight forward. If you would like to apply now, please find below outlined steps;
Step 1. [Summary of Applicant Requirements]
Kindly send the below listed to us by email or fax;
- Signed job contract
- Scanned copy of current Bio page in Passport [Page(s) with the passport expiration date]
- State if you plan to relocate with any person(s)
Step 2. [Form completion and submission]
We complete the application form; if there are any issues, we will contact you to resolve them. We then send the completed work permit application form (WP1) the Government agency. We are registered and, we can submit your visa application and get it processed on the same day! Please note that we only have a limited number of slots each week, so it is advisable to send in your documents as early as possible.
Step 3. [Employment Registration]
You must be registered by the United Kingdom Employment board for an Employment number before you can begin work with your company. So on approval of your application, the government agency will state the applicable fee for the registration. The company cannot make this payment on your behalf, but will reimburse you after your work permit is issued. After payment is received, the government agency will send the permit to you as you will need it in your possession before you enter the UK. Since you are outside the UK the mail will also contain instructions and an appointment letter to obtain a visa from the British High Commission in your country.
Step 4. [Embassy appointment]
Your appointment letter will detail which documents to go with. At the High Commission you'll complete a biometric exercise because when you apply for a visa to the UK, the embassy will scan your fingers and thumbs (10 digits) and photograph your face digitally. Afterwards, your passport will be collected to be stamped and returned the same day or as will be advised by the embassy staff.
Step 5. [Flight, Relocation Allowance, Apartment]
At this point, we will book your flight(s) on your preferred dates. The company will also wire your relocation allowance and any reimbursement to your account. On arrival to the United Kingdom, a member of our staff will be at the airport to pick you up to your new apartment. The apartment keys and servicing details of your new apartment will be handed to you. Before your arrival, you may request for pictures and details of the apartment.
Step. 6. [Orientation, Tour]
For the next two weeks, you will be given an orientation at work; a tour around the city will also be arranged for you. During your orientation, the Human Resources department will go over your benefits, duties, and discuss with you about your career/future at the company.
Of course, the above stated is a simplified perspective of the entire process but we are here to ensure everything goes smoothly. I think it is also important to note the following;
If your work permit is approved, your child(ren) are entitled to the same free education as British children. You may choose to send the child(ren) to a private school if you wish.
[Health care]
As a work permit holder, if you are coming down with your family as your dependants, they are eligible to free health care provided by the National Health Service.
As a work permit holder, your spouse is entitled to take up any lawful employment.
If you would like to move forward, please feel free to contact me with the requested documents.

Kind Regards.

Whats the objective of this scam ? Are they asking for money ?

Has some one tried calling the numbers provided by them ?
#230043 by Bryon Williams Tue Dec 09, 2014 4:28 am
Its a fake employment scam.

The scammer will have you pay fees for pretend visa's, documents and etc..

There is no need to call the phone numbers. The numbers used are re-direct numbers pretending to be in the UK. These numbers are used by scammers and not real companies. These numbers can be answered any where in the world.

Please contacta moferatorstor if you have a question or information about this post.

Please do not tell the scammer he is posted here.

Please remember the fallen.
