The scammers are posing as recruiters for companies and informing candidates that they need to pay a 'refundable' fee on behalf of Airswift if they wish to accept a job offer.
This fee is taken and the scammer will then cease contact.
These individuals do not represent Airswift and we encourage candidates to be wary of anyone requesting money for medical tests or visa applications as part of the recruitment process.
Several candidates have identified two companies, 'Ramen Overseas Consultants' and 'Sunbright Vision Consultancy', using the Airswift name fraudulently. This company is not associated with Airswift.
Below are images of the business cards the scammers have been using.
Please know that these materials are not Airswift documentation
Please note the graininess of the image, inconsistent formatting and lack of spacing in the section requesting payment.
Sometimes these letters refer to a 'Paul Barron' who does not work for Airswift.
In the below invoice, the fee is described as an insurance amount to accompany the job application.
Again, note the inconsistent formatting and grammar.
If you happen to fall victim to this fake recruitment scam, we recommend that you contact your local authorities and file a report.
We urge you to cease contact with the scammers straight away to prevent any more attempts at receiving your money.
If you are unsure about an offer you have received, review the red flags that may indicate a recruitment scam.
