The Ukash is a new safe and secure payment method that we use for effective payment of CRB fees.

We will give you any more information needed on the training/induction day and we are glad to welcome you to our company. Attached is a confidential application form, please print, fill in all relevant sections and bring it with you on the day of your induction/training.
After several email exchanges, they wanted another £50 claiming the first payment had an error, what a joke stealing from unemployed people/FAMILIES who are struggling to pay for food and bills. I will be spreading the word to friends and family.
So glad the Police pointed me to this site, if only I thought about checking before I parted with the cash. I WON'T be scammed like this again. What a sick and twisted world in which we live.
