SCAM ALERT

Hi guys

A company Cutbrut International Air Services is a scam. They are offering positions (B737NG, Airbus Captain and First officers) for a supposedly new airline in Vietnam. You must pay $190usd for a written and psychological test, when/if you pass.
  • Pass a basic aeronautical knowledge test
  • Pass a psychometric test
  • Spend a personal interview conducted online with our psychologists
  • Once these tests have been passed, all the procedures for obtaining the VISA will be completed to carry out a simulator test and a personal interview with the Airline.
  • Candidates who pass this selection process will be invited by the airline to join the company through a 3-years employment contract and will be available for the initiation of the training scheduled by the airline.
NO real airline will ask you to pay for the tests etc, besides that you can't enter most countries due to lock down. VISA is useless for now.

Another Vietnamese airline: Bamboo Airways did the very same to some of my British and Norwegian colleagues. Did the selection process all online and then on the pretext of getting entry visas in he middle of the pandemic made them all pay something in the region of $200+ In an escrow account online.
Only one of a half a dozen that I know ever got into the country. I believe he also paid for his medicals, his initial sim session and part of the extended hotel quarantine expenses. First salary cheque is yet to be received after nearly 8 months of getting hired!
Seems to be quite an extensive racket in that part of the world. And Bamboo Airways seems to top that list.
