It's a scam.

Both domains foramexpetroleum.com and marcozialawfirm.com are fake and were registered on the same day last October, with the same domain registrar.

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.

Lastly, as a test factor. This is your only responsibility that has been assigned to you and it will serve as a sign of your willingness and acceptance to work with Shanghai Construction Group.

The proof of accommodation is a prerequisite for your residence permit.

The proof of accommodation can be gotten from any state recognized lodging facility (Hotel, Motel, Guest-House,) after booking and paying for a place to stay in their facility.

They are the closest lodging facility to the job site, and they have numerous advantages suitable for employees of all cultures. Their conditions for accommodation are relatively encouraging. Contact them, and make reservations (booking and paying) for your 1 month accommodation.

This also saves time and avoids lateness to work.

Note: There is no legal document associated with booking.com. The Company and the State do not accept booking.com reservations. Do not send us any document obtained from booking.com

7. My English Language power is not very strong, that is less than 60%.Will this be a problem for communication at the job site?

Definitely not. Construction is a discipline and like every other discipline, it has its own language. What is important is that you perform your assigned tasks appropriately and professionally. Secondly, as an employee the company encourages you to be flexible and use this opportunity to perfect on your language skills in both English and French as Cameroon is a bilingual country. If you have any other worries, do not hesitate to ask. Our dedicated team is available to provide you with clarification and necessary information.
