Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I'm a Malaysian and was offered a job to work in London and the company (JKX Oil and Gas plc) refer me to local company in London (Carib Immigration Association) to apply for the Work Visa/Permit. I have paid 556.56 Pound Sterling via Western Union money transfer as requested to Carib for the UK Boarder Agency VISA Fee. Now Carib also told me that I have also to pay some 4,750 Pound Sterling as part of Department of Expatraite Resources (DER) which I need to gain membership from British Independent Pilots Association (IPA) and British Helicopter Pilots Association (BHPA) which mandatory requirement set by DER. I don't find the logic of paying IPA and BHPA as the position offered with Oil and gas company is Ship Scheduller. Please guide me if this is correct or it is just a scam. If it is a scam, can I het back my 556.56 BGP back?. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since I use Western Union with the person to receive and address to deliver the money, Dont you think the Agent of Western Union should have some personnel ID detail taken before releasing the Money to Carib Immigration Associates?
