Job Email from

I got an email from this email ad above stating a job offer in Ireland. But they require processing fee to be paid through credit card or western union. The amount is 32 Euro. Has anyone experienced a job offer like this? Regards, June

Be careful with this kind of offer as they're usually scams. They just want to rob you. Overseas employment offers normally provide everything as they need your services. Another thing is, notice the mode of payment they require credit card and western union....not even secured. They can steal your credit card number/security code and if you send your payment thru western union, there's no way you can track or get your money back.

I just wonder how people can be so heartless these days just for the sake of money:( They also offer payment through bank transfers. quite well organized kind of scam. I was about to give out credit card details. I'm happy I did not...

As everyone else has said it is a scam. I receive a handful of such emails every week and I just delete them straight away. A legitimate employer would not be asking you for money up front and it is really shocking that this kind of scam is still out there. Obviously some people must fall for it or the scammers would stop doing it.

If they're emailing you asking for money, they're a scam. No employer would ask you to pay any sort of processing fee. Especially if it isn't a job that you went out and applied for. I worked for an email host, and I've seen a lot of people complaining about these scam emails. The scammers just buy a long list of email addresses, and then send out these emails hoping for people to send them money or give their credit card information.
