Good morning friends,

Today I would like to share my horrible experience with you. This could be an eye opener for many people like me who believe that the whole world is made of good, trustworthy, and reliable people.

I received two e-mails for various job openings and I decided to try my luck and applied for both. I know my luck. If there was ever a competition, I would lose in it too. I have magnanimously adopted rejection and failure as my twin sisters. So, I was quite confident that I would be getting the regular messages like :

Thank you for showing an interest in our organization. Unfortunately, you don’t meet our requirement. We wish you good luck in your future endeavors. Then, there was a twist in the tale. I got two unbelievable offers: One as a private tutor for English in London and the other, as an English Teacher in City University, Ajman (UAE) with a whopping salary of 35,500 Dirhams with perks that no one in his right mind would offer. They asked me to send my request to an International Travel Agent for Work permit and Visa. But thanks to my reading Mystery novels, I smelled something fishy and contacted my relatives in UAE. My worst fears materialized because they were swindlers trying to relieve me of my bank account. Here’s the pic of the offer letter.

I checked the official website of City University, Ajman. There’s no such vacancy for English teacher. I may look like an idiot but I certainly am not one. Sometimes I feel like writing my autobiography as:

To whomsoever it may not concern.

Hi! I am an idiot. I am waiting to be conned by innocent thieves like you. I am surprised you find me worthy enough to send such genuinely fake e-mails, show me daydreams, then prick my bubble. Now I am sorry to let you know that my bank balance isn’t upto your expectations. If possible, please invest your kind, crooked mind to set up some legitimate business and earn money the honest way.

All that glitters is not gold.

All good virtues are not sold.

Don’t judge a book by its cover.

Don’t think that everyone is an idiot in the world all over.


Thank you so much for taking your precious to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs. 😊😊

  1. I had also received offers for a post in Oman. This is old tactics, and now WhatsApp are also being frequently used to con innocent people. One thing is obvious, there is no free lunch. Thank you, Aparna ji for making readers aware of such tricks in a very interesting manner πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜Šβ€οΈβ€οΈπŸ’

  2. Thank you so much, Kaushal ji. You are absolutely right. The word free itself is highly suspicious. ❀❀❀😊😊😊

  3. Oh my gosh Aparna, I am so happy you did not fall for this scam. 😱 This is so despicable and may karma find these thieves who have apparently taken advantage of other victims in the past. Sadly, these things are global. I experienced something similar, but thank God he opened my eyes before I fell into the trap. As they say, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Bless you for smelling something “Fishy!” 🐟🐠🐑
