Doha Independent School offered me a job paying $5,500 U.S. monthly. I signed the contract they told me to send an email to the Qatar border agency. In the contract they agreed to buying me an airline ticket to Qatar also that I would need to pay for my visa. When I heard back from the so called Qatar Border agency they requested a Western Union Transfer of $870 U.S. I emailed to so called school and said I will send the documents to the border agency you can pay the Visa fee. They insisted I needed to send a western union transfer to them. Their reason is that they didn't want to lose money for a visa. The following is a rhetorical question "Help me to understand how you are buying me an airline ticket in excess of $2,000 Yet you want me to pay a visa fee to mitigate your risk it just doesn't make sense.
I had a Skype conversation via text with the so called school. I played along as if I had sent the wire. They asked me for the code. If I'm paying the Qatar border agency for a Visa why on earth would the school need the code? I also asked if there was an Embassy in China (I'm currently teaching in China) The person said she didn't know. One who recruits for an international school should have this information and if they don't they know hot to find it. Another suspicious thing is that the name of the man with the border Agency was Abraham. This is an odd name for a Qatar national.
Beware of an offer from Doha International School.
