Un ejemplo de estafa

Os adjunto, para que podáis ver, un ejemplo de las muchas estafas que hay relacionadas con el empleo. Pusieron un anuncio a través de Gumtree pidiendo personal, y este es el mail que me ha llegado tras haber enviado mi CV.

1. Que en Londres paguen 8.50 libras/ hora como Kitchen Porter (friegaplatos) ya es raro.
2. ¿Para qué quieren los datos bancarios?
4. ¿Qué es eso de pagar 50 libras por un Ukash Voucher?
5. He mirado por internet y la empresa no existe.

No respodáis a este tipo de mails nunca.

    Tampoco os fieis de supuestas empresas de soportte como esta que cito, aunque hay cientos. Te piden dinero por que te expidan el permiso de trabajo y eso es ilegal. En Reino Unido solo se necesita el NIN que es como nuestra segurdad social, y se expide una vez que tienes el contrato de trabajo, no antes, y cuesta uno 30€. Las supuestas ofertas de trabajo son pruebas de un día, te deslomas y ni cobras ni te dan el trabajo.
    Si estais pensando en salir a trabajar al extranjero, contactac directamente con las empresas ofertantes, o a traves del conslado, nunca a traves de estas empresas piratas, que se aprovechan de la fiscalidad del pais para sacar cuartos. En Reino Unido, para montar una LTD, sólo te piden que esté alli afincada.

    1. Totalmente... Que nadie pague por trabajar porque es una estafa en toda regla. Afortunadamente todavía no se ha llegado a ese punto en el que uno tenga que desembolsar cierta cantidad para conseguir un trabajo.

      Gracias por tu aportación!!
