There is a MyPetStop location at that address, not a hotel.

I'm sure that the scammer's fake website won't be around for long.

It is worth remembering that no legitimate job offer will require you to pay fees to get a job. They pay you not the other way round.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Scammers have little idea of UK pay scales. Even an assistant restaurant manager in a top London restaurant wouldn't be paid that, let alone one in a holiday hotel. And Denton is near the bottom of any list of UK holiday resorts.
