Firstly you receive n email claiming to offer you a job working in the Gulf of Mexico and that you had been recommended by an agency. Secondly you are requested to contact the company Attorney in order that they can organise a swift visa for working in the USA. The so called Attorney sends out an email (as shown below) asking for 2100 US Dollars and they will get you a visa no problem.

Please see the attached email:
OK. A British Citizen should be able to secure permission to work here without much trouble. The only challenge is the time-line; normally it could take up to 3 months, after paperwork is finished, to get the permission. At this point, you have two options:

(1) To apply through the normal procedure, following all the due process of application for the permit. The news is that even after you application met all the necessary qualification, there is no guarantee that the permit will be granted considering the incoming administration harsh stance on immigration issue.
(2) The second option comes with an assurance and guarantee from myself, I am privy to certain information and pattern of making application on behalf of my clients that hardly fail. Even your employer knows how many of their foreign staff I have assisted to obtain this very permit and this is not limited to one organization but many of them. If you are interested in the second option (which I must advice you to be), then it will cost you a total of $2100. This amount will take care of all expenses and you will have your permit in a matter of 21 working days from the day I get the money.

To proceed, I will need a copy of the following documents

(1) A copy of your International Passport.
(2) A colored Passport photograph
(3) Birth Certificate
(4) A Employment offer agreement from your potential employer

You will also need to supply evidence of previous employment contract document, and copies of your educational and training certificates will also help. As soon as I have the needed document and the funds, I will secure the needed permit within twenty one days. Below you will find my bank and account information.
