I recently was offered a job in Scotland by this guy below with address:

Engr.Jean Claude Lecordier Family
#96 Hope Street, Glasgow G2 2UE,
Scotland, United Kingdom.
+44{0}7543313342.

The newly revised contract says owner of home where I am to stay is:

Free accommodations at #96 Hope Street, Glasgow G2 2UE Scotland, United Kingdom, owned by Mr.Lawrence W.Moran, consisting of a private room, bathroom, living room, kitchen and relaxation centre, Internet ready computer and vehicle for mobility.

Legitimate guy in UK?

Interestingly enough when I emailed the attorney John Cree about his physical address, he never replied? Now Jean is replying for him ...a bit fishy perhaps?

Contact my personal attorney he says "who endorsed me during the swearing in of my contract with Network Rail, his name is Mr.Richard Hammond,he knows me very well and he can tell you more about me and my family ok. His email address is Barr.richardhammond01@live.com"

"Regarding Mr.John Cree home address,he is living at #61 West Nile Street, Glasgow, G1 2RL, United Kingdom,he is originally from Glasgow, Scotland."


Anybody know any of these guys in Scotland or are they Nigerians posing as Scottish?

The "West Nile Street" looks fishy and adds a bit of humor to the plot. LOL

Hey, this is great. I hope the teachers will use this. I have found that some very naive, never taught abroad, are being given offers that are just too good to be true and they do not want to face the facts.

If anyone does read this and has questions that I can answer about teaching in China, I would be glad to help them. The rules are pretty much, if it is too good to be true, it probably isn't...and no legitimate offer will request money or your bank account number. Most offers will include the airfare, or reimbursement. Some offers are from recruiters in those countries, meaning they probably do not have a firm job offer but want heads to offer prospective school clients. You will end up on your own, or victim to their unreasonable demands. You do not want to go to a foreign country without an specific job and salary.

Watch the red flags...

I believe I have received two more scam offers. I am checking on them now, but if anyone has had an offer similar in contents, please report it here so we can all be forewarned. My offers come from England and Scotland, for a private tutor for wife and son. They have even forwarded pictures. Fortunately, one picture had a license number of an auto included and I am having an on-site friend see what they can find out. I will keep the forum updated if anything comes of it.

Meantime, do not accept any payments in advance if they require a bank account number, or your social security number, (this can open up identification theft for monetary accounts or entry to illegal aliens) or any costs to send to them for any services, or faith deposits. I have been asked to put money up to guarantee the contract. This is not only unacceptable if legitimate, but highly questionable in general. It can be common in China, but I have always just laughed them off and they will bypass the requirement.

Terri, regarding your UK phone number question, it seems you were correct.

Apparently, number using +44 70xx format involve emails that are sent from Nigeria and other West African countries, not from the UK! If you see a +44 70xx number in a 419 scam email it usually means you're dealing with criminals based in Nigeria.

I read this on the site below that also explains in detail the 419 scam.

...WARNING TO ALL TEACHERS WHO ARE VERY EAGER TO HAVE A TEACHING JOB AT LONDON,ENGLAND...

I got a job offer from MR.MUHAMMAD KHAN a Pakistani national and a Resident of Fulham, London for a PRIVATE TUTOR for HIS SON named ERICK and wife named SONIA...The offer was totally too good to be true for they are offering 2500 GBP they even sent me the contract and some documents from UK Home Border Agency under the name of MR. PAUL LIPPET,esq. Everything was totally for real but at the end they are asking to send 500 GBP as a travel insurance through a Western Union or Money transfer...they even sent their contact number which as follows + 44 703 1990 580 mobile number, + 44 702 408 4781 office number and another mobile number which was shifted to + 44 702 401 0580 for no any further reason.

JUST A FEW REMINDERS TO ALL MY FELLOW COLLEAGUES...

Once there is a WESTERN UNION MONEY INVOLVED be alert for that is just a FRAUDULENT TRANSACTION.


A WISE TEACHER KNOWS ALL FORM OF CHEATING...SO DON'T BE A VICTIM OF CHEATERS.

Hi thank you for posting this link to scams. I am a student finishing a masters in TESOL. I received an email on May 21, 2009 from a Raymond Mark Luther, German Engineer who would like for me to help his wife communicating in English in Scotland. He gave the work link and a few emails to contact him. The contact phone number is the one you've mentioned, +44702 etc.

He wanted me to send him this information:

Requirements for the position includes:

1. Any Certificate obtained as an Applicant with English teaching
experience (Bachelors Degree and above).

2. Your recent photo.

3. Your phone number with your country code for proper conversation.

4. Once again your updated CV.

So this is a scam right?

Hi Parveen,

I think you are right and I would not send this person any personal information. When you are not sure about a potential student/client, use a temporary hotmail/gmail email address to send the questions.

I have never really experienced any scam so I don’t know how to report it online.. Though I for sure have experienced some frauds by assignment services. And I reported them to the management only as it's what you do with it.

I honestly find the contents to this blog boring and it was even well written for the readers to read about it. It was talking about the Computer monitoring software which is one of the most intellectual topics ever. I was disappointed that they have ruined it all.
