Are you living in India and received an recruiting email from one of these companies or spoken with:
We have yet to hear from A SINGLE PERSON who has received a job through them. If you have received a job through Fabios.Inc offering jobs in the UK to people in India or the others above, or have anything positive to say about them - PLEASE WRITE US! So far, all we have seen is very suspicious, at best. See the email from a victim farther down this page.
CFR RECOMMENDS THAT YOU DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION UNTIL WE CAN CONFIRM MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THEM! And certainly DO NOT pay them anything!
Do you have a resume posted online? We'd like to hear from you about your experiences recruiting emails that turned out to be scams or misleading - click here to write us. We suspect these are possibly a new wave of identity theft attacks.
Note: There ARE legitimate recruiting and employment firms on the internet, and some with very similar names to those above. We recommend you check any company out before you give any personal information to them. If they do not have a posted address and phone number, or don't answer the phone, don't give them any personal information! The legal recruiters will be happy to give you contact information, return calls and act in the open!

I was in regular touch with people namely Miss Radha, Miss Bala, Miss Sameera, Mr Jagan at V-care office Chennai and Mr Rick in the Uk office. My Interviews were over the phone of which two were from UK and 1 from Chennai. They offered me a position of Team Leader in their centers shortly starting in Mumbai. The process involved in signing up a bond for 1 year with the company and a security payment of Rs 60,000/- which was to be returned to me with the 6th months salary. There was a training period of 3 months in the UK starting May 2007.
The last conversation was somewhere near the 25th of Jan 2007 where I was informed that the applications for work permit is been done and the Visa interviews would be somewhere in the first week of Feb. Since then I am not able to contact any of their offices. The Chennai ( India ) office has closed down since the 1st week of February 2007.
I am now sure this is a fraud company. I lodged a police complaint with the Mumbai and the Uk police crime departments. But it is not helping much as their procedures are very slow. I really want to unmask these people so no other people in future are fooled by such people.
They have not only mentally but also financially hit me.
I am in touch with 6 more people from different parts of India who have been trapped by them.. All of us have enough information to catch them, the only thing we don't have is proper guidance and the way and help to catch them. We all individually have filed police complaints with the respective city police stations. But nothing seems to be working. The total scam is for Rs 4.5 Crores where in people from various parts of India have been trapped.
The reason i am mailing you is if you can guide us cracking this scam,
I would be glad if you extend your help towards this matter to us and help us catch them.
