Subject:  Attention : Fraud recruiters from Shell, UK..Pls help ..can you pls trace the  Fraud

Dear  All,

I just  want to bring it to your notice that for last few days some fraud ppl (from  Royal Dutch Shell, UK as they have said and mentioned in the emails as their  identity) are trying to trap me with a lucrative job offer at Royal Dutch  Shell at UK location. Somehow they reviewed my resume from some job portal  site and sent me accross a job offer certificate from Shell without any  interaction or interview session and asked me to revert back with my approval  for the said job offer ..naturally i was surprised with the letter and replied  to the user with my job respective queries and for the same that user who is  using some yahoo mail account asked me to transfer an amount of 900 pounds to  some company representative from Royal Dutch Shell (name-John Williams) bank  account as a charge of visa processing and for other official works and  mentioned that once i transfer the amount the company delegates will rush over  to my city to meet me personally and help me out to finalize the rest of the  official work to get the work permit at UK with Royal Dutch Shell. And  also he informed that i need to follow up the same as early as possible as the  due date of joining at the company at UK is by 15th Dec, 2008 and unable to  transfer the amount my appointment will get invalid  immediately.

I m forwarding you  the all the trail of mails related to this issue so that you can have a better  check on it. I afraid this is totally a fraud case and ppl involved in it  trying to cheat candidates from India or some other countries and provoking  them to make payment for a lucrative job offer at  Uk.

i have his mobile number as  well –> Mr. Morgan Wills Brown –> Current location –> New  Delhi,India –> Cell number –>  +919899632235

Hope the  emails and contact number will help you to trace Mr.  Fraud.
