How work permit and visa fraudsters Lure People into giving them their Hard-Earned Money

UK work permits and lottery email scams have been appearing in people’s inboxes for quite some time now and the number is ever-rising. First, it was easier to distinguish between junk email and what was genuine, but with the passage of time scammers have also become smart. They understand how job seekers and those who wish to emigrate spend their time looking for opportunities using platforms like LinkedIn and other job websites.

Whenever you receive such an e-mail, the first and only thing you must need to do is to delete it immediately. Sadly, not everyone does that and as a result we often get to hear about how someone was scammed into paying a hefty amount to a fake person. These scammers construct a reasonable and convincing e-mail. They add some verifiable correct facts so their message sounds legitimate.


Ask yourself

Would anyone in their sane mind use a medium such as email to send such an important information / document without knowing you in the first instance? All the official visa documents are handled via trusted couriers such as DHL or VFS etc. Would a well established company ever send you email using a free Webmail-based e-mail account such as yahoo.co.uk or hotmail.co.uk? Nope, and this should be enough to stop you to get lured and delete this e-mail right away.

Watch out

Some more things to watch-out in these phishing emails and LinkedIn messages include:
