We are receiving messages from people claiming that are being scammed by a guy called “Allen Jake Wood” using firstname.lastname@example.org as an email address and claiming on Facebook he works as an agent with Eurojobs.
EUROJOBS.COM DOES NOT EMPLOY AGENTS!!! We only ever use our domain name in email addresses, so anything that is NOT ….@eurojobs.com has nothing to do with us.
Eurojobs.com does not act as an recruitment agent, headhunter or employment agent. We are only a job board and only exist on-line.
As we have said so many times before in this blog, NEVER EVER pay middlemen a fee in order to get a job. It doesn’t work like that in Europe. If a company is interested in hiring someone, you will be invited for an interview at the company’s offices and they will generally pay you for expenses incurred.
If you are from outside the European Union, the chances that you will get a job is almost zero. Unless you are a specialist who’s skills can not be found in the EU, companies are not allowed to hire someone from outside the EU. They have to find someone who has the (birth) right to work in the EU.
Below you will find a screengrab of this guy, but the likelyhood is that this a fake photo as well. Nigerian gangs are often behind this. Always check if you can find enough legitimate information elsewhere on the internet to corroborate his claims. In this case it probably is all fake.
If you have been contacted by him and he is asking you for money to join his “program”, please report him to Facebook. You can do this by clicking on the … to the right of the Message icon in his profile picture.
