    100% scam.

    There is no job and no legit company called that name.

    Any phone number that starts with +44-70 or anything similar is not based in the United Kingdom. It is from a UK based cell phone redirect service that can be answered by anyone anywhere in the world. It is a favorite service of scammers who want to pretend to be in the United Kingdom but are really half way around the world from there.

    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 pretending to be the "government visa official" or "travel agent" and will demand you pay, in cash, via 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 your 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.

    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.

    If you google "fraud visa job scam", "fake UK hotel job Western Union scam" or something similar, you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near-victims of this type of scam.

    It's hard to say. The job requirements are pretty vague;

    "Competent in the use of Microsoft Office applications especially Word, Power Point, Explorer and Excel."

    I only use Word a couple times a year and Excel weekly, but I consider myself competent. It couldn't hurt to make contact with the guy. NO personal info though. Set up a P.O. box for correspondence.

    I would look for a recruiter that specializes in placing people with companies overseas.

    Well, if these opportunities exist, the one who is offering them is a paid recruiter and not the one who would ultimately hire you. I would definately steer clear of this if they ask you to pay the fees which are ordinarily paid by the hiring company. As a matter of fact, I would suspect any requests for payment. I hope you find what you are looking for.

    This is NOT how you find a job. If you are not flown to Malaysia for a face to face interview with the employer BEFORE you are offered a job then assume it's going to be a scam.
