The detective work goes on...

I reviewed a contract recently for a VIP Flight Attendant position - it looked plausible and the website link looked real, but I had my doubts. The terms and conditions were above standard and it asked for the work visa to be paid prior to joining. The company, I do not believe exist as I checked them out a few weeks ago when I received an email from them. Also, when I worked in the UAE before the company always paid for the visa.

So just be aware, if you receive a job offer in the UAE that you have not applied for or interviewed for, then it is likely to be fake. More information here:

working in UAE https://www.internations.org/go/moving-to-the-uae/visas-work-permits

These scams are getting very elaborate now, so please don't get caught out!

Please be very careful out there. Not only am I hearing about various job scams and fake contracts, but there is also a disturbing new turn. A guy was recently arrested in UAE for faking job interviews for VIP cabin crew and then they were drugged at the interview and sexually assaulted. Horrible. Please don't just take an interview without research and checking how legitimate the company is. This happened to a large number of potential crew over a period of a year. It's not to say it won't happen again.

Also, tonight I heard of an agency asking for VIP crew with an outrageous and unrealistic salary (take it from me, I know what a crew member can earn...) and they are being asked to attend special meetings... Unfortunately, a lot of people in desperate times fell for this too. They are looking for 'companions' for their special meetings during flights, so you can guess what that will entail... If in doubt, contact an experienced crew member or myself before falling into one of these nasty situations.

Stay safe and stay clear of scams.
