There are many companies that sell crap in the name of job consultancies and WisdomJobsGulf.com is just one more addition to the list. You can expect them to be shrewd and clever when it comes to convincing people for paying. Most of the legitimate companies offer this for free. There are charges too, but still you can make out the difference between the legitimate ones and fake ones.
I signed up on their website and my friend did that too. We both were looking for a job and needed something to click sooner. After waiting for 10 months after graduation, the pressure was surging and so was our desperation. We signed up with many online job portals and were trying out hard.
Within a week of signing up with WisdomJobsGulf’s website, I got a call. The lady on the other side of the phone told me that the profile was selected by one of the best IT companies worldwide and they are hiring in chunk. I thought I could get through this. They lady said that the charge for registration needs to be paid before arranging the interview.
I asked for the details of the company. However, she said that the company policies do not allow her to provide details before payment. I asked her to call back after an hour. After she disconnected the call, I called my friend who had registered with the company.
To my surprise, he had got the same call with same information. The only difference was that the call he received was from a guy. We discussed about it. As, we wanted to ensure that we do not lose any opportunity knocking at the door, we decided to make the payment.
After the girl called, she provided me the details for payment and asked for the acknowledgement. We both made the payment the same day. I called the girl to provide her the reference details. She also shared her email id and asked me to send a test mail.
I instantly did that. I had to make this happen. My friend also did the same. We both waited for the call and email and ensured that we do not miss any call for a week. She had said that the call would come anytime in the same week. It was a Thursday. We waited till next Thursday before calling her.
I called her on next Friday. When I told her about the call that never came through, she suggested that the network wasn’t reachable. The client called thrice the same day I made the payment. Hence, she would be connecting with another requirement soon.
I called back my friend and he had just finished talking to his agent from WisdomJobsGulf.com. As I suspected, he had received the same answer. Its been more than two months and we both have not received any call from anyone from that company. I know now that we were scammed. WisdomJobsGulf.com is a fraud. It will vanish after you will make the payment. All they care about is money.
