Al Mawakeb School teaching job scam

Postby shawarma » 07 Jul 2010, 13:38

Al Mawakeb School in Dubai is a real school but their PO Box 10799 is being used by what appears to be some hoax or scam ESL teaching jobs in the UAE.

For several reasons, there are red flags in the job advertisement but I won't detail them here since that just makes it harder to pick out the next bogus job offering. Although one glaring error is the heading is for a job in Abu Dhabi, and then the details say an international school in Dubai. Anyone living in the UAE at least knows they are two different cities in two different emirates.

If you're interested in the job, then by all means contact the advertiser. Then before you send them any money for visa fees (which is not allowed according to UAE Labour Law anyway), find out the name of the new employer (if it's not Al Mawakeb School), find out their contact details independently from the recruiting organisation, and contact the employer to see if they really are advertising the job you're applying for.
