AN ABERDEEN graduate lost hundreds of pounds after signing up to a bogus oil and gas training course.

The hopeful job-hunter was informed by fake site First Oil Energy that he would be offered a post on condition that he undertook an online training course through Oil Education.

A three-figure sum was paid for the training course, but then Oil Education contacted the job-hunter to inform him that the fee was incorrect and the correct amount should be £1000 more.

But it has now emerged both recently-registered companies are bogus.

The elaborate scam involved stealing website content, including the biographies of the directors, from legitimate companies.

According to its website www.firstoilenergy.co.uk, "First Oil Energy was founded in July 2008 on the fundamental principles of applying state-of-the-art petroleum and natural gas exploration and extraction technology to the development of onshore oil and natural gas projects."

The second company, Oil Education, claims on its website to have been "working at the forefront of our industry" since 2005 and to "deliver over 200,000 learning events in over 30 countries and more than 20 languages" every year.
