Institute Review

A scam is currently taking place at Sri Ara School in Johore Bahru, Johore, Malaysia. The scammer (s) "Malaysian Immigration Department MID) has sent me an invoice for MYR 9200, about £1800 for work visa x2, National
ID card, plane ticket and Malaysian certificate (??).

The MID has confined the following:
- work visa can either be procured in the country
where the passport is issued or on arrival in
Malaysia. In the latter, you only need a
passport for the visa application. The fee is
MYR 1000, about £200. It takes a month to
process the visa.
-The National ID is only for Malaysians

According to the school, the scam has been going on for couple of weeks. They have already reported the matter to the police.

I sent them an email and they responded with the details above, with a few emails back and forth I felt they was something fishy..................

So I did a search on google to find the real school and called them. The school is aware of the situation and is in contact with cybercrime and the local police...................

Be wary of any recruiter who asks for money from you upfront in return for finding you a job or providing job leads
Legitimate recruiters get paid by the employers for whom they place candidates -- not from the candidates. Furthermore, most of the scammers who ask you to pay for job leads will provide you -- if they actually do so -- with the same ones you could find on a search of Indeed or other job-search engine. These scammers are using the visa trick to get your your money.
