Could be.

After seeing this thread I made enquires.

I managed to unearth a mate that applied via 350. They came back with an interview offer, in the UK. but had to get himself there. Dubai based?? They got his license details and his name mixed up. The second letter offered him a rebate ticket through a flag carrier if he sent $us1400 vis western union. Him being streetwise, decided not to pursue the process further. What proffessional outfit would use western union for transfer of funds?

Greenwich aviation reveals nothing after a Google search.

Watch out there.

I got the "you've been selected for an interview" email..That they would pay for my ticket to London for the interview..The Yahoo email address is making me think this is a scam from the start.

They want a copy of my license, medical and photo...I'll send them that but can't wait to see the scam when they get back to me.

I recieved the same email for greenwich and now I'm emailing climbto350 for confirmation. I believe this is a scam as well after further investigation...if it sounds to good to be true, usually is!

There is a position open for a Hawker 1000 right hand seat..
This would be for a private client in Manila.
The client would be offering $9000USD a month (after tax deductions)
A 2 bedroom apartment is provided.(excellent).
Transportation is provided within the Philippines.
Medical Insurance cover is procured.

Good friend of mine recieved this in an email attachment. He called me to find out what I knew about them. He treid to call them and told me that there was no relpy on call, but ongoing emails.

Never - ever give your personal info out to soemone that will not identify themselves. If an organization is sincere, they will understand and provide you the oppourtunity for sending documentation to a known source.

To many people are ready to forward their personal details with little regards to the crediability of the inquring source.

Tit-for-tat. Show me yours and I will show you mine!

Thumbs down Definate Scam

I just recieved an email for a Hawker 800XP capt based in Dubai. After exchanging emails about my interest in the position, they said they would set up an interview for me in London. I did receive a phone call from a Capt David Khedira stating that his client wanted to do all payment through Western Union and cashiers checks. Sounded a little fishy....tried to call the next day to let them know I was no longer interested and there was no answer..........Be careful of this scam!!!!!!!!
