Adnoc Cautions Employment Hunters about Scam E-mails Offering Work

Adnoc (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company), most prominent oil company in the world and situated at Abu Dhabi is cautioning employment seekers about one scam e-mail promising work inside its establishment, published arabianbusiness.com dated June 26, 2013.


Adnoc explains that the bogus employment promising e-mail tells that on the basis of the recipient's academic qualification as well as experience, the company is offering him work in its organization.


The e-mail even tries to sound convincing so the so-called job agreement shows the signature of an HR manager along with Adnoc's logo and name alternatively the same for a company belonging to its Group on its pages of the printed letter-head, Adnoc notes.


Meanwhile, according to the company, many people of separate country-of-origins residing at UAE as well as outside have been observed getting e-mails offering fake employments, as well as job contracts, which actually arrive from scammers promising non-existent jobs. Arabiabbusiness.com published this dated June 26, 2013.


Adnoc states that the fake employment e-mail directs the user that he should send cash for taking care of expenses like fess for recruitment, visa application and work permit.


Here Adnoc reminds to the public that it doesn't recruit people for work through e-mail. Solely, the company's Human Resources Directorate communicates with job applicants straight away via its personnel that tell the scheduled venue, time and date for the interview, if required.


In addition, Adnoc doesn't have a policy for requesting any recruitment fees from job applicants during anytime of the recruitment process. In fact, telling a job-hunter to pay money is illegitimate as per the labor laws of UAE.


Furthermore, Adnoc doesn't ever sign job contracts with fresh recruits unless the latter clears a medical examination as well as receives the involved administrative officials' approval.


In the meantime, in reference to a similar job-related e-mail fraud during 2013, POEA (Philippine Overseas Employment Administration), during February 2013, alerted job hunters of fake e-mails, which promised employment in foreign countries to people looking for work. Alongside, in 2013 again, fraudsters told about employment opportunities to gullible applicants to work as governesses for residents in USA.
