I just found this in my junk mail box...

Has anyone heard of this or a scam like this?

I have not given anyone my resume for Kuwait.

Dear Mr. Richard



Hope all is well. There are vacancies available for teaching English courses commencing the Fall semester 12/13.



I would like to arrange a Skype interview with you for this week.



Bearing in mind the differences in time zone, please advise when you are available. Our working hours are from Sunday to Thursday (8:00 am 5:00 pm Kuwait time)



Kindly provide your Skype ID and make sure you have a webcam installed.





I look forward to hearing from you.





Kind Regards

The American University in the Middle East exists. Did you apply to them?

This uni, like a chimera, does exist like many others do in the ME, but it exists in name only. What actually goes on there, is a whole different matter. Perhaps, they got your info from a website and like it.

No, I didnt.


I dont think I have advertised anywhere....pretty sure I havent.

Also, note the tone.....very foreward...which raises my suspicions.

All I know about the place is all the negative stuff that I read here. It is definitely a place to avoid if you can...
