Recently I almost got duped. I got a mail from a College in Dubai saying that they are interested in me and they would like to see my resume. I sent my resume and then to my wildest surprise, they send me the contract. The pay was very attractive and also I was given other perks like an apartment, car and free food. I could also take a vacation abroad. I did not even bother to think that it is fishy that they selected me even without conducting an interview. I with heartfelt glee signed the contract and sent it back to them. They also asked me to contact their travel agent. When I did, I got a letter from the agent telling me to pay 2000$ as visa processing charges. Then only did it dawn on me that this was a hoax. I would have fallen for their trap, but I didn’t since I did not have the money to spare.
