Fraudsters are luring victims by posing as big UAE-based companies that are offering them a job and then asking for fees up front or their bank account details.
Wirestork.com was recently entrusted with an employer screening opportunity by a private client, and to whom an employment offer was forwarded, disguised under the label of Bareen Hospital, Abudhabi.As it seems, a lot of job seekers are being targeted by the scammer and we thought it will be helpful if we published an awareness article. A similar scam was brought to public attention by Gulf news a year ago. We urge all job seekers to stay safe and conduct due diligence on prospective employers.
The following are our key findings.
1. The website bareenhospitals.com was created on 08/04/2019 and hospital authorities at Bareen Hospital have denied having an alternate domain for their website. Their official website is hosted under the domain bareenhospital.ae
2. Prospective candidates are being forwarded to a fake representative,s address, centraltravelae.com, and in order to misrepresent Central travels and tours. This website domain again has been created on 08/04/2019. The official website of central travels and tours is at centraltravelsuae.com
3. All correspondences are from free email addresses including outlook and Gmail
4. The scammer has created a near replica of official websites in both instances.
