Subject: another fraud
Good day Miss Young,
I am from the Asia.Last week as I was surfing the net I came across an ad about job hiring for caregivers.Because I was interested, I clicked on it and expressed my interest in applying for the position.After a day,I received a response from a certain man named Alexandra Bruce who says he is a businessman from UK.He said he is hiring me for the position.He gave me an email add of an agency named Moon Travel Agency.He said that I should contact this agency to inquire about the requirements I need for the processing of my papers.So I did.I emailed the said agency.The reply was indeed swift and they enumerated certain documents for me to comply.But what struck me was when the so called agency said that I am to shoulder half of the expenses for the processing.It will cost me 1000 pounds.I thought to myself-" that ' s a lot of money" . If I am to risk in paying it,surely it is gonna cost me much.And because I got some doubts about it,I search for the official website of the Moon Travel Agency and I did found one. But when I looked at it thoroughly,I noticed that the email address sent to me by the said Mr. Bruce was different from the one posted in the official website of Moon Travel Agency in UK.So I sent an email to the official website of the agency and asked for their confirmation regarding the person claiming their services for my application.Fortunately they immediately replied my inquiry and they said the person is not their client and the email address given to me was not their own.That is why,I get to confirm that it was a fraud.
I am just lucky that I didn' t fell for this scam. I am sharing this to you so we can warn other people out there that this certain Alexandra Bruce is a fraud.
Here is the message thy sent me as instruction on how I am suppose to send the payment for my processing fee. I hope this can help warn others about this fake job offers. As you can see this Steve Nelson could be the Real Name of the one behind this scam.
