Gmail and yahoo.
Why would a company with an expensive site use them?

Did you get a response on Petrax? I have also gotten an offer from them and I am not certain if it is genuine.

Look the simplest way to know if the job offer is a scam:  They will ask for money!

That's it.  If they ask for money for WHATEVER reason then it is a scam.

Oh and obviously, sending you an offer without ever going through rounds of interviews and through a free email address should also make you think twice :)

The way these scammers do it is they give you the address and website of a genuine company but then use free email accounts such as gmail to correspond with you and to ask for money.

I faced the same matter and I checked they copied genuine website belong to almasaood oil & gas.

I got a job offer from Petrax oil & gas resources,they referred me to Tahar world travel agency which wants money from me for visa & work permit and they say Petrax will refund me back as soon as I arrive.Is it normal to pay those kind of things from your own pocket and refunded back or its a scam

Absolutely not normal. It is a scam. In the GCC, the employer pays for the permit, ticket and anything else that is required to get the candidate over.

As I said before, any company that asks the candidate to pay, in whatever way, is not genuine.

Scam 200%

Its a scam. there is a linkedin article on them I believe. I usually search a company before applying so as not to waste my time.

I also recieved some job offer from Petrax Oil & Gas Resources, and I respond them. They send me contract letter which is realy clear and accurate so I sign and sent them back. They also told me that I need to contact with Tahar World Travel Agency via  info[at]taharworld.com with Ms Nadil Mokta for Abu-Dhabi residency visa submission process and they asked from me 1150$ that I need to pay by myself for medical fitness test which is mandatory for newcomers to Abu-Dhabi. Another stupied thing from them, that they suggest me to pay through Western Union or MoneyGram or Express Money to avoid paying extra bank transfer charges.

Of course it is a scam

P.S
Becarefull of scam guys, pay attention what they write, and how they write. If you need, I can provide you guys their email letters which they sent to me.

good  day  i m Mr  rabah soltane a nurse  from algeria  i received  via e mail   interview on line  by petrax oil and gas  abu dhabi  as a nurse recruit 
please find attached a copy of this  link  and tell me what i do  and i ask you if true or false   action
await your response urgently [url=hr[at]petraxoilgasresources.com]   on line interview     Mr issa  yussuf  HR manager[/url]

Please read this entire thread and your question would be answered.

Simply, if they ask you for money or send emails from yahoo/gmail addresses, it is a scam.

go through this link, you will see domain name and website data  http://hallofdomains.co/en/datas/petrax … ources.com 

If you need technical or location details go through www.lookip.net and paste IP address and you will get info where this company born.

I got the same message too. initially the email is recruitment....@gmail.com and I'm query on the email address. After that they send me the form and would like to online interview.

I just ignore the message. its abnormal procedure by the national company.

Hi Iliyin

I also got an offer from that company......I have all their detail

dear  sir  please sed me  via e mail all informations about this job offer and all details of petrax iol and gas

from Mr rabah soltane  algeria

I had that offer and i was at western Union when i asked for the companies bank account they were very unhappy m.. nadil and yussuf. Because i dont know what the dollar money is i didnt know i had to pay such amount. I didnt send it. What i hate is they are taking advantage of us looking for jobs.
And they gave me two diffrent names who should receive the money. 
Thanks to Western Union for helping me.

Never pay money for job offer its Scam

did they asked you pay money if ask you and fees to pay please avoid its scam

How can you get offer without communicate call or talk or webcam ?? if ask you about money
or western union or gram avoid its scam

I would like to know (is it real or fraud ???)

Apart from the blindingly obvious terrible wording, the domain ID is protected, something legit companies don't do, and the details are all over scam warning sites. I got the details because they forgot to hide them, clearly lousy scammers.
They'll ask for money soon, probably adding some reason why it needs to be sent quickly.

i would like to thank you for these informations

Those are good points from Fred. 

The other thing you need to keep in mind is that no company should ever offer you a job without a proper interview.   If they do and then ask you to pay anything i.e. whether for  a visa or verification or whatever, it is 100% a scam.

hello, I've had a hiring e-mail and I would like to know if you have an idea if it's really or scam. thank you for your help

I think you need to read the thread carefully.  It is very clear that it is a scam.

To repeat for the millionth time:

1) Any job offer you get without proper F2F interviews
2) Any job offer where they send you emails from free email addresses
3) Any job offer where they ask you to pay money for whatever reasons

ARE ALL SCAMS!!

I always wonder how these scams get people to pay up - the replies to this thread have informed me of the answer.

Way too many people just dive in -they're pretty much sure it's a scam but they don't bother doing even basic checks, not so much as reading posts on the same thread that explain exactly what's wrong.

I suppose the checking and working out this is a clear scam was all a bit of a waste of time as so many people don't even bother reading the results, just merrily ask the same pointless question over and over again.
Sometimes I wonder if the scammers are just proving Darwin's theories are right, but getting a payday from weaker species.

Exactly.  Reading this thread, I have developed a new appreciation for Darwin.

It is so clear after the first 4-5 posts that this is a scam.  But it seems as if people are just lazy and want someone to do the due diligence for them.

Scam and the web page is down now! :o
I got a similar offer that I never applied for.

HAPPY EID CELEBRATION!

I have just recently received 2 official letter of appointment from PetrX Oil & Gas Resources & SYNERGY OIL & GAS INTERNATIONAL (Dubai)  for a job offer.
I only submitted my documents and no online interview happened. The salary is too good  ( I, e, basic  AED 22,500 &  17,500 USD (Synergy) to be true and I am really doubtful. Upon checking, the website, and the physical address seems legitimate!
I have already signed the contract and I am referred to GULFBEST TRAVELS & TOURIST AGENCY CO. LLC, JUMERIAH LAKES TOWERS for work permit and residence visa documents processing.
In the meantime, they are  asking me to send them USD1,800/=.!

But I really need your advice guys with regards to my predicament.

Can anyone confirm if this is a scam or not?

Thanks
