Default Gulf CV Specialists - Scam?

The father of a friend back in UK has been contacted by this company saying they may have a job for him in Dubai but that they will need to put his CV into the Dubai format. Of course they will charge him for this service!

sounds like a scam to me but has anyone come across them before?

You never pay for someone to find you a job. Isnt it also funny, my hubby was home on holiday and whilst here he had phone calls from recruitment people saying they had a position that was right up his street.. They NEVER called or wrote when he was looking for work, funny that isnt it. It seem when Recruitment companies contact you it is because they need to get their databases updated.............OR ELSE!!!!

What exactly IS the "Dubai format" anyway?

Every CV I see in this part of the world looks just like the ones you see everywhere else.

In any case, the secret to getting yourself noticed is to make your CV DIFFERENT from all the others (within reason).
