Hi willoweb,
I just received a "wonderful contract offer" from them after responding to their search for experienced pilots...
First feeling...The draft does not look "real" (but I must say "I have seen real contracts much worse than this one!") and they ask me to advance the fees for the work visa procedure (with promise of reimbursement...) ... Quickly!
This is via a very well known Travel Agency in UAE...
Continuing my investigation...

Check out the posts around March 2020 on this thread about Aerovista.
sounds like a scam. A mate of mine got some offer letter exactly like
the one Jettjockey posted on 8th.

Many thanks 'scarecrow'. I believe your assessment is correct. I got an offer letter also but couldn't find a lot of facts on their operation. Got a couple of buds in DBX looking into it for me. Cheers.

Thanks rocou. Same here. I've got some friends in the region checking it out as well. Almost sounds too good to be true ... but let's see.

Interesting. So it sounds like a definite scam, possibly utilizing a legitimate business as a redirect. Really appreciate the input bongo bongo. Use the work permit and visa payment upfront to access your financial data. Crude but possibly effective.

Hi there! I,ve got a fantastic offer today from Aerovista for A330 capt... searching for opinions it seems to be scam. At the end of the offer they say this:

Please note that it remains our official policy that all Employees will incur
the expenses for their Residence/Work Permits processing as a proof of
their seriousness and commitment to join our working team.The company had to come up with this new policy now because sometime in
the past we have processed the Papers of new Employees, who failed to turn
up for work proper.
Therefore if you can’t afford the processing charges you DECLINE the offer.
Meanwhile, We remind you that any amount you spent in processing your
papers will be totally refund back to you before you embark your trip to UAE
according to AEROVISTA .

Clearly a scam. Email was sent from a Gmail account. Never trust a business that sends an offer that sounds too good to be true which is coming from a @gmail.com address.

I also wonder how they got all our email addresses, I definitely never shared mine with them!

Over the last couple of weeks I have been bombarded by these scammers daily, no idea where they got my email address from. Obviously didn’t reply to them.

SCAM

Hey guys,
got the same email (attached) from "[email protected]". Confirmed it is a SCAM.

When I received this suspicious email, I used these two email addresses for verification:

[email protected]
[email protected]
Replies from both emails (attached) confirmed their interest.

Anyway, I searched a little bit, and found this thread, so I contacted:
[email protected]
[email protected]
and they finally confirmed it is a SCAM.

As mentioned above in thread, be vigilant for domain, the correct one is @aerovista.aero
