    Concerning Personal Registration Number at the (European) State Workforce Office
    There has been an upsurge of "recruitment companies" offering jobs through unsolicited e-mails requiring, almost other things, your Personal Registration Number at the European or State Workforce Office.

    There is NO SUCH THING.
    This is pure SCAM mail and should be ignored!

    NO UK or European company is going to offer a job without firstly an interview and certainly NEVER by unsolicited e-mail.

    Here's a number of other sites that this has been raised at:
    www.scamwarners.com • View topic - Centrum Jobs Team
    Bulgarian Scam
    Is this a scam? - Fraudwatchers

    All these "recruitment companies" are after is your money, pure and simple.
    They will NEVER deliver anything in return and you will be out of pocket.

    So delete any e-mails of this type and move on with your life.

    This is what Scamwarners.com has to say about these "job offers":

    100% scam.

    There is no job.


    There is only a scammer trying to steal your hard-earned money.

    The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses and will demand you pay for made-up fees, in cash, and only by Western Union or moneygram.

    Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.

    Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell you email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.

    You could post up the email address and the emails themselves that the scammer is using, it will help make your post more googlable for other suspicious potential victims to find when looking for information.

    Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.

    As you know, whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.

    6 "Rules to follow" to avoid most fake jobs:
    1) Job asks you to use your personal bank account and/or open a new one.
    2) Job asks you to print/mail/cash a check or money order.
    3) Job asks you to use Western Union or moneygram in any capacity.
    4) Job asks you to accept packages and re-ship them on to anyone.
    5) Job asks you to pay visas, travel fees via Western Union or moneygram.
    6) Job asks you to sign up for a credit reporting or identity verification site.

    Avoiding all jobs that mention any of the above listed 'red flags' and you will miss nearly all fake jobs. Only scammers ask you to do any of the above. No. Exceptions. Ever. For any reason.

    They also operate under other reported names - Centrum, Brightcove, Daystar, Jobs777, Best Jobs London, Euro Jobs Team, EuroSalary, Work Abroad, European Placement Team, Paladin Media, EuroEmployment, etc, etc - the name seems to change every time one name is exposed on enough scam boards - none of which are registered businesses in the UK or listed on the Home Office Register of Sponsors - the ONLY companies authorised to offer work to non-EU workers
