if it looks to good to be true it probably is.

The above statement is proving very apt recently at the pembury learning centre, with a number of scams sent to people’s e-mail address offering them guaranteed jobs. The email further requests them to purchase a £50 ukash voucher from a paypoint to cover the cost of a c.r.b. disclosure . You are then requested to e-mail the voucher number to the company. One of our clients have attended an interview  to find it’s bogus and the funds have disappeared. They even request uniform sizes and prefered shifts for work

Also observe caution when asked for bank details.I f you have been a victim or suspect fraud. The Met have a helpful site http://www.met.police.uk/fraudalert/reporting_fraud.htm

  1. Sounds awful – a particularly cruel scam targeting those who can least afford to lose money! The email I saw was frighteningly convincing – no tell-tale bad English or poor grammar that usually gives away a scam email. The comment ‘if it looks to good to be true it probably is’ was in relation to the pay rate, which was well above the going rate, so that’s one thing to look out for.
