Dear Mr.Shankar
Don't ever entertain this do not pay any amount to them....I definitely hope it's fake company now a days this has became trend to earn money be careful....
No company will ask the employed employee to pay the Visa processing fee. Another point to be thought of is that they didnt had any telephonic interview and the offer is purely based on the answers give by you in the questionaire. Come on howz that possible. Even someone else can answer it or else we have our best friend google to help out. Beware of such companies.

Dear Sankar

These all 100% fake company. Normally the company will conduct Telephonic Interview or Video conferencing Interview. Without any formalities how a company can select you. The emailers will give a bank account and contact person from UK highcommission office. He may be the brother or some relatives of embassy employees.

If you send some mail to them then they will reply as like this which was received by me.

Dear Sir,

There is no different between the both name as they are the same thing He is called Andrew and Stan, those are his name and the Stewart is the fathers name. The most important thing here is that after you have signed the agreement and accepting all the terms and conditions, you are still requesting the company to bear the processing fee. this is disappointing from your part and in this regard, the appointment expires immediately before the expiry date written in this agreement because you statement indicates your interest to work with us and we do not entertain doubt.

Thanks for all your response so far,


Mr. Brooklyn Daniel

Please check whether the names mentioned in the letter and e mail id names are talleying. I sent a mail as follows for which I received the above mail.

First of all, It is not understood that why you are not sending your e mail from your e mail id. Your Name seems to be as Mr. Sten Stewart and in this e mail the name mentioned is Dr. Andrew Stewart.

Sir, I would like to request your honorable office to bear the cost of Visa Processing charges and Travelling documents and the same may be deducted from my monthly Salary in 4 equal instalments.

After receipt of the concrete confirmation from your honorable office I will submit the further documents either through e mail or in person.

Expecting an early reply, which will help me in proceeding further.

They will tell you after remitting the money to wait for 10 days, then you will get your air ticket and visa, we have opened file for you. and other nonsense stories.

If you approach after 15 days in the gate itself you will be stopped and this is not their embassy/high commission letter and no such employee will be working with them.

So never (Repeat) never believe such correspondence. As like me for time pass you can do correspondence but do not pay.

Presently Videocon, Maruti Suzuki companies names are also being used by these cheating group.

Beware of fake mail. Never give your Bank Account Details/PAN Details and other relevant financial involved document details..

Be cautious.

With warm regards

Even the company will be in existance. But these type of recruitment process is nowhere adopted by any companies. These companies names are being misused by some miscreants.

If so then such mails should be forwarded to those companies, only then they will be aware that their company name is misused by some miscreants. This will also affect the reputation of such companies.

If you send letter to those company by post or through courier, they will not accept the courier.
Mainly highly qualified people are becoming prey for these type of fake companies target.
Even in Chennai Sub-urb area a police station got an e mail of interview letter.
Beware and be Cautious.
With warm regards

These are fake companies being operated thru mail from Nigerian soil. They will ask for Visa fee and then Licence fee, etc. I know many gullible ppl lost huge money. This is like lottery prize money mails.
Hi Shankar,
Itz a genuine Company, they do have the vacancies at North Sea oil scotland, they are in need of Man Power.
Trust me.!!
One of my frnd has got the same mail and he has applied for it, his profile has been shortlisted, as u stated he didn't had any telephonic interview but he has through some Interview questionnaire answered those Questions and cleared the same.
His Visa processing in under progress. he has got any appointment date of 25th march 2011.
If you have your passport handy and all the relevant documents in place then u can share a copy of those across to them and they would request to initiate the Visa processing.
Visa processing fee has to paid by urself first then later u r entitled to refund. also make sure u have IELTS certificate else u'll have to get it managed from British attache.
