Employer nominated

Hi, I am Jay, 28, Civil engineer currently working in Taguig sa isang kilalang gencon company. I was emailed by mavoracontractorsaustralia.com for a job position and i was qualified po. I signed an employment agreement including salary etc. Then, sabi nila sila magpaprocess ng residence/work visa and all flight tickets, travelling expenses, will be provided. But before that para maprocess daw is I have to acquire employment eligibility and attestation letter sa attorney nila arounrawisolicitors.com and i have to pay 1370 AUD almost 48k pesos. May ganito po bang proseso or this is scam? Thanks

    Ang tanong, nag apply ka ba before ka nakareceived ng email? Walang employer na basta basta na lang mag ooffer kung di ka naman nag apply. This could be a scam. I haven'tseen the term employment eligibility and attestation letter used by immigration dept. You need to have a skills assessment for you to migrate or apply/sponsored for a job here in Au.

    if its too good to be true then i might be scam.
    i suggest you back track where you applied and then check from there.

    @EngrV Ito yung website nila. Medyo iba yung address dun sa sinabi mo sa post http://www.mavoracontractors.com

    Meron silang Contact Us page. Maybe you should inquire if they really sent you that e-mail kasi pag nagrerecruit hindi ba dapat sinasabi what post you're being recruited for? Two cents ko lang.

  • EngrVEngrV Posts: 7Member

    @maguero yes po yan din po yung email sa website nila ang nagemail po sakin. Iba nga yung address kapag sinearch sa google map.. Highway sya tinuturo. Hehe

    Hello po. Employer sponsored po ako. It's true na sila gagastos lahat from visa process, flight tickets, now pati quarantine and 1month accommodation pagdating doon. Pero hindi po ako nakakita ng attestation letter, first time ko lang yan narinig. Be careful po.

    Hello there, I would suggest to background check the Company, I have been emailed 2 times already, from 2 different companies, although I sent a direct email through their website. Then they replied like 2 weeks after. Kakahanap ko ng mga companies sa google kaya nag direct ako sa Websites ng iba ibang companies sa Australia, they told me to send some documents like resume, diploma, pictures etc etc , then without a specific job position, they told me i'm hired, which is odd of course, then kaya medyo nag duda ako, sabi pa sa email, I have to contact this certain person kasi nga daw madami restrcitions dahil pandemic, at dahil magaling ako mag background check, at dahil parang awkward ang pictures nila sa websites, ni research ko at i found out they just took the pictures from other websites, this is a shipbuilding company, it's a real website, but the site is too simple, and even yung board members nila, kinuha lang nila sa ibang websites at social media. So hayun, ni report ko din sa Australian Fraud website , di ko na na track kung anung progress. So ingat lang din po, learn to background check, check their Linkedin accounts, employee's comments sa glassdoor, check their sites and magtanung tanung din, If your gut tells you there is something wrong, then just take a moment to investigate.

    Hi I just check the company website, besides it's very simple and kind of a little outdated for a company website for 2020, one indicator is a not secured URL

    and also I checked the Map and address and it is literally OUT OF NOWHERE

    this is just my quick background check and don't take my word for it, you can still do a research about the company, Good luck!

    Just want to share an experience. This same kind of modus occurs in the middle east. I have received twice a job offer. They also emailed me the contract, position, salary etc. I checked on website, at first it seems legit. All company credentials are there. Then, they are asking me to pay only for visa and all will be e settled. Then, i have a doubt kasi to good to be true. I tried to call the number posted on its website. Someone picked my call and said thr position is true and I am hired.
    But when i tried to check the company location in google map, there is no Hospital and only residential houses can be seen. I checked the company via google and there is no hospital name appesring in thr search engine but when you paste the web address from the contract, a company website will appear.
    So, i searchef for same fraudulent cases online and an article appeared that there are victims that encountered the same case. After that, i dont bother to proceed with the offer because i think it is fraud.

    Hello, chineck ko po yung website nila. May background ako sa web development so tinignan ko yung code nila at gumamit lang sila ng pankopya ng website na "HTTrack Website Copier", yung laman ng website eh galing ng www.jonscivil.ie (Ireland based)

    Disclaimer lang po :# yung website tingin ko mukhang hindi siya legit pero your call pa rin to verify the company.

  • EngrVEngrV Posts: 7Member

    @abaper thank you po. Naeenlighten na po ako. Hindi ko na po tinutuloy hehe. Mas marami nagsasabi na hindi sya legit.

    Hi po. Visa 482 po ako, kasama si hubs na dependent. Typical application po sa immi. Agent po nag asikaso, dagdag bayad yung sa travel exemption. Nagprovide ng letter yung company kung bakit kailangan nila ako urgently, may mga scenario like number of orders/projects for the year at kailangan na talaga nila ifill up yung position. Nagkataon po nasa PMSOL po kami ni hubs kaya napabilis.

    i was curious about this situation kaya nag-imbestiga ako.

    (1) wala na yung functioning website. pero buhay pa rin yung domain name.

    (2) gaya nung sinabi nun mga naunang nag-delve into this, sa google map nasa gitna ng kawalan yung location ng company as in forested area sya! ni-report ko na yung business address nila sa google.

    (3) sa ABN lookup (parang SEC business registration sa Pinas) hinde nag-eexist. malaking red flag ito. may mavora pty ltd pero iba yung post code at hinde mavora contrators ang name and iba yung post code ng coffs harbour (2540) sa nasa post code nun legit business sa ABN List (2000).

    conclusion: scammer po ito. ingats po tayo. parang phone/text scammer din po yan. kung hinde tayo sumali sa raffle, paano po tayo mananalo?

    PS -- nireport ko na rin yung Aroun & Rawi Solicitors na hinde na din nag-eexist yung website at walang legit na ABN number sa google. pareho na po silang tinanggal sa google maps.

    Honestly, my first impression upon seeing the the 1370AUD that needs to be paid ---- definitely a scam! I hope you did not fall for this. papunta ka pa lang ini-iscam ka na. pagdating mo dito marami din tumatawag na scammaz. Mahirap kitain ang pera sa pinas kaya doble ingat tayo.
