    To avoid such scams, the simplest and most effective technique is to ignore information-laden, appealing messages that promise you a job in a faraway area or a significant quantity of money, among other things.

    In summary, these frauds seek personal information from users. Personal information includes their names, email addresses, phone numbers, marital status, and employment status.

    According to the study, the free application form is immediately accepted. Victims are informed that they “would be provided a work permit, visa, plane tickets, and lodging in the UK for free,” which is not true and is a “SCAM.”
