I have received an a-mail from what seems to be a company looking to employ. They first asked about the name phone number and the CV. I initially sent the CV because I have published my CV since I am searching for a job. 2 days later, I received and email and what seemed to be a signed contract. I got suspicious and asked some friends about the company in UAE and they confirmed it is a very reputable company. However, they do direct recruiting and not through a travel agents. I got more suspicious and called the company and they confirmed it is a scam and they are receiving similar requests.below is the email I received from them:This is an Affirmation that your experience and qualifications were found successful for the requirements of AL MASAOOD OIL & GAS ABU DHABI. Please find attached herewith, relevant document containing the Prototype of your Contract Package for your perusal and approval. Upon review and acceptance of this Contract Package, sign on the last page and send us the scanned copy of the Acceptance  (Last) Page. We congratulate you on your appointment and wish you a long and successful career with us.
