Bogus job offers warning


The UK Border Agency has today issued a warning over bogus job offers targeting foreign nationals seeking work in the UK. Several cases have been reported of bogus offers where the names and titles of real UK Border Agency officials are used to add authenticity to apparent email scams.
Rob Yeldham, director of communications advised:
'My name has been used in several apparent attempts to scam foreign professionals looking for work in the UK. We have referred cases to our security unit, but at this stage it is unclear what the nature of the scam is, or where in the world it is based. The best advice is to be careful of any unsolicited offers.'
What to look out for:
  • Anything implying endorsement by an official - UK Border Agency staff never act on behalf of employers.
  • Incorrect agency email addresses, for example, co.uk, or .com endings.
