I applied in early September for a job position in London, UK. It seems strange to me that I can't find out much about this company online. This is what they answered me two weeks after I filled the application form, in an email titled 'Application Successful'.

I sent them back the agreement with my signature, as it seemed so real. The number of the company seems to be registered. They didn't ask me for money yet. What do you think about it? Thank you so much to everybody who will help me.

They sent me everything with the email [email protected]. It is related to the website which was only registered on 10 August 2017. Unfortunately this website is so uncomplete I can't verify a thing.

Thank you so much. It was written in a really formal way, it seemed truly real. I feel so stupid. So since I signed the agreement, are they going to ask me for money? Thank you again.

Ok, thank you. Similar job positions (engineers) are offered in Italy and South Africa too.
Watch out guys.
