Job offer (scam?)

Hi.
My name is Gabriel Puerta, I recently received a job offer from a company called Hummer Energy Inc. With details as follows:

Hummer Energy Inc

Tel: xxxxx12
Website: hummerenergyinc.com

They've asked to contact some

Barr. xxxx
Istanbul Turkey

To start the visa process. It sounds like scam to me. Does anyone have any advise?

Many thanks for any input

Gabriel

Did you apply in the company or did they access you through a LinkedIn/other database?
Or did you get a random email about job offer?

Did you receive the email directly from the said company with the same domain in email?

HAve they sent a contract?

Are they asking you for visa fee?

Hi.
Many thaks for your reply.

That is definitely a scam. They ask a tranfer through western union as a garantee required by Turkish Government.

They even have a webpage and real phone number.

Yes. I would think so.

Friends
The company's web address is fake. There is no company in this name in Turkey

Many thanks for that information.
Hope nobody has fallen on this trap

They will ask you for a money transfer for government guarantees.  Then they will disappear with your money.
Same trick as always with scammers.
Don't send money!!

Thank you so much appreciated your advice...

Hi Antalya,

How about SGF Energy Ltd. ?  They also have a website.
Is it real?
Thank you for your help.

Prayitno

If any company is hiring you without an interview is very suspicious.  Then they will ask for money transfer for any reason.
That is definitely a scam.
No company in the world will ask you for money beforehand for any reason.

Thanks so much for the advice Gabriel.

Any information on the real existence of the company in Istanbul Turkey??

Prayitno

No. I don't live in Turkey

Oops... I am sorry Gabriel. 

Anybody could help me please, especially who lives in Turkey, Istanbul??

Appreciate for any inputs.
Prayitno

Hi Prayitno!
Anyway, speaking of SGF Energy, I also got reply to be one of financial controllers in Turkey, I actually applied this job through gulf email and SGF just emailed me explaining they knew me from gulf outsourcing company. But the thing that makes me suspicios is the email from SGF went to my junk and also they offered me with a big salary (literally big big big salary). Did you as well?

And anyone, could you please help me explaining does this SGF company really exist?


Thank you.
Regards,
Anggi

Hi Anggi,
I received also the same offer without interview.
The email went in my junk mail.
I think it is fake.
I decided not to follow it up.

Regards,
Prayitno

Hi Anggi

I have a similar scenario related to SGF Energy, a real very nice job offer, good website if you check, but very suspicious, not based about spam folder, just because their offer besides de big salary it is to start just 2 weeks in Istambul, and everybody with expat experience, knows very well, that this takes time due to the paperwork starting with the visa, permit to work, bla bla, etc

So looks like another try to get money

I received an offer letter from SGF-ENERGY in Istanbul Turkey and they give a good offer but the problem is they asking show money. They instructed me send it by Western union on my name I would like to ask if it true.

Please give me answer.

Just Scammers looking for naive people....

yes unfortunately the scammers use many methods and especially they psychologically try to penetrate in the minds of the job seekers and their preferred destinations,
especially be more alert and think that a contract of work should be following an interview passed on telephone and also on skype in general it happens like that,
a reliable recruiter never asks for money transfer,
vigilance!

also same method they followed to me
money transfer to western union

info[at]sgf-energy.com is this a genuine thing. Got an offer also but very huge salary !

Any so called job offer that asks you to send money is a scam.
