hi everybody!
I feel like I need to share my experience. Until last week I thought I found the job of my dream (how naive!) at Draycott Hotel.
I came accross their ads on Paleba.org, saying that there were vacancies at this Hotel after sending them my resume and a copy of my scanned passport that's how they replied to me.

After sending the signed contract to the alleged consultant (Wilfred Balford ,who is actually a pastor funny huh ) , he sent me some documents with the HMRC logo, requiring me to send 498 GBP by Money Gram or Western Union for all related residence work permit expenses. how surprising huh?!

Afetr scrutinizing all the doc they've sent, I found a lot of spelling errors, that the references they gave plus the number they used where used in other fake job cases ( corinthia hotel or ritz hotel). Moreover, after deep web search i found that HRM Susie Mc Ewan was on LinkedIn with no profile picture and with only one connection ( which is quite impossible for a HRM dealing with a lot of people).

does it help anyone?

This is indeed a scam. Government offices do not use addresses at consultant.com, hotels don't use addresses at englandmail.com, and businesses in the UK don't use phone numbers beginning +44-70.

I found this very useful because in a newspaper in Panama, where I live, these thugs published a notice of Draycott Hotel. I i was about to send it cost 450.50 GBP work permit, they they offered me 2,200.00 GBP as monthly salary and they pay the visa and airplane ticket. Supposedly I would get free accommodation and hotel uniforms, as well as food.

I would vacation twice a year, one month each, GBP 2,500.00 more for personal expenses. work from 7:00 am until 4:45 pm Monday through Friday with daily two-hour lunch break at work.

I was really very excited about this job because I need it. So thank God, I opened the page of the UK government and could document myself, then I did a search on the email address they gave me and I found your page (scamwarners).

The first ad I saw was the Draycott Hotel, exactly the same letter you published, and I'm still shaking and very disappointed.

Thank you very much for your valuable help. If not perhaps have found it today, I would be another victim of fraud, because he was asking for a loan to pay for the work permit and all personal belongings to stay in London.

Here the letter they sent me.
