Company Representative scams, Payment Processing scams and other Employment scams.

This is a fake job scam! There is no job! Do not send documents or money! If you are not interviewed face to face, in person, the job offer is Always a scam! If you are asked to pay fees for a visa or work permit or anything else, the job offer is a scam, even if they say they will reimburse you!

These scammers willl interview the victim by telephone several times, and then with no face to face, personal interview, email the victim with a job offer. Then they ask you to get your documents verified by sending you to another scam company. That scam company will email you and ask for money for document verification, then for a visa or a security deposit.

Do not pay! There is no job! It is a scam.

They take the name of a legitimate company registered in the U.K. They also take over the company domain so it appears to be registered a while. It you will see that it is new because it has recently been updated. This domain expired in November of 2008 but even though the scammers just bought it Godaddy shows the original date it was purchased. The domain originally expired in November of 2008 https://www.thaizone.com/products/domai ... 12008.html
The scammer just registered so they can look like they have been in business since then.

These scammers have run this scam many times before. These are links to just some of their scams.
