Highlighted in red is one indication that this is a scam. They ask for fees for visa, work permit, and also the "criminal background check". Real recruiting firms don't do this.

Readers: Royal Saudia Consulting through the email and site posted above, ARE definitely a scam. This post is likely from the scammer, trying to prove his legitimacy. I am leaving it intact to show what lengths they will go to to try to continue a scam. -Jillian

ROYAL SAUDIA CONSULTING IS A REAL RECRUITING SITE IN SAUDI ARABIA.
THE FACT IS THAT THEY ARE WORKING FOR THE SAUDI ROYAL FAMILY AND THAT THEY MUST RESPECT SECRECY AND PRIVACY OF THE FAMILY MEMBERS.

THANK YOU.

^^^^ Perhaps you would like to admit your connection with Royal Saudia Consulting.

Are you the scammer behind the email?

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.

@KKK777: the site and email listed on this thread are NOT legitimate. Your ridiculous assertion with no proof will not prove them to be. We are quite familiar with scams here and are diligent with our research. I have not banned your account yet, by all means, post again and try to prove the legitimacy of this scam.

@Readers: As I said in my edit of his post, this IS a scam.

Have you sent a payment to a scammer with Western Union and now realize it's a scam? If the payment has not been picked up, you can cancel it immediately! 1-800-448-1492

Gee.. Difficult not to notice how convinced all of you want to be that this Royal Saudia C... is a scam..!
However, after all.. why not..
In that case, there is one question I 'd like to ask, if indeed , this site is fake and these people are scammers.. If I correctly understand, the goal of a scam, by definition, is to get something from some one ( what ever it is )... right..? So.. question is... : what is this site looking after ...?
More over... Where are the victims...? Where are the poor legitimate scammed persons crying for Justice and to get back their money...?

...
But I am sure, that all of you, Oh smart and ingenious people must have an answer to theses questions..and that maybe, there must , at least, be some lawyer somewhere who should know that One is innocent until proof of being guilty...? ( am I wrong or ..? )

I 'd like to say " God Bless"...but I am afraid I 'll pass right away for a scammer with that kind of writing..
Anyway.. take care and keep up the good work..

By all means, KKK777, if you have evidence of legitimacy, contribute to the discussion here rather than insult us. The email and accompanying website have been researched by us as well as by members of our sister site, 419Eater.com. Some information is posted here: http://forum.419eater.com/forum/viewtop ... 73#1416173

The website was further investigated and added to the database of fraudulent websites, here: http://db.aa419.org/fakebanksview.php?key=38824

We are careful and thorough and do not just off-handedly declare things to be scams.

Where is your information to the contrary? As for "innocent until proven guilty" this is not a court of law. We are not prosecuting anyone, we are trying to save people from losing their money. Because of the nature of the internet, everyone should always have healthy skepticism and do research. Everything that seems to be too good to be true . . . IS.

The email and accompanying website are a scam.

This is not a discussion forum, our sole purpose is to educate and warn potential victims. Participate constructively or I will remove your membership priveledges.

Have you sent a payment to a scammer with Western Union and now realize it's a scam? If the payment has not been picked up, you can cancel it immediately! 1-800-448-1492

I correctly understand, the goal of a scam, by definition, is to get something from some one ( what ever it is )... right..? So.. question is... : what is this site looking after ...?


Just to reiterate what is posted above, the answer is very simple:

2 clear colour copies of a valid PASSPORT
- 2 clear colour passport size PHOTOGRAPHS
- Copy of your full updated RESUME + copy of last 3 work certificates
- Payment of 120 € ( or US $ 170 ) (Visa : 50 € - Work Permit: 70 € )


The scammer is after the cash and the bonus opportunity of stealing your identity (and possibly even using it to scam additional people).
