About our company, it was started back in 1970, but we ceased our operation due to certain unforeseen circumstances but we are back again.
Sounds like a good reason to send them $500!

1970? He means the old Bali Air? That was gone in 2004/5 when parent Bouraq was struggling, and Bouraq finally went bust in 2005, and has been in bankruptcy courts.
This new Bali Air has nothing to do with the old Bali Air other than name. Nice "try" by the HR.

Add that to Love PanAm's post about seeing what was at the Address in Makassar.
Sounds totally believable, NOT!

Wow, I just had a quick look to the website. If it's a scam they put a lot of effort into it. Lol

Have you not read this thread - or have you decided to ignore everything that people have written to warn you about these scammers?

By all means go - give them your cash. You can learn a valuable life lesson in the process!

Is this the same crew who had a Trilander sitting at Seppingan with empty nacelles for oh, I don't know, 10 years or so?

You'd be better off having a look at Susi Air.
Or send your money to me, I can help, honest I can.

So to sum it up, as initially suspected, looks to be fraudulent. My colleague who was interested gave them a call and they were unable to answer simple questions on fleet, interview, simulator training or anything for that matter.

The name used by the fraudster is Budiano Didi and there is a "Captain Jow" also. They use [email protected] I suggest everyone who cares to report it to the cyber crimes unit, email is [email protected]

For what its worth anyway.

It looks like they're back at it again. Just saw posts for them on some recruitment websites. Their email is still [email protected] and the emails in the message they sent "[email protected]" don't exist...
