I also received the same. They are demanding now 1370 Dollars for visa processing. Their tour operator is also fake. When i asked them the address they didn't replied. This AlJazi Tower and Asia street does not exist in qatar. I verified through a friend in Qatar.

hi, i did send you an e-mail a while ago asking if you reached to something becasue we have a common query.
well i made my investigation and i found it fake for many reasons; 1st the website is for kuwaiti company, even the logo of the company is not shown on the offer letter sent to me and this company doesn't operate in QATAR, the one which operate in QATAR is Gulf Petroleum Limited WLL Qatar. 2nd the Continental Tourism Services company which are suppose to arrange the work permit, open their website www.continentaltourservices.com you will find them making an ad for DOHA city tour, ATLANTIS hotel in Doha and Jumeirah mosque or something but all of these are in DUBAI, UAE, luckily i was there 2 weeks ago and you can verify this simply in the internet. beside, it is impossible in Oil & gas company to work 25hrs per week, this is a vacation and not a job offer
well, for me this is a fishy thing and i will not go for it
for me this is a scam

Same with me, i totally agree with the reply above. They have demanded 1370 Dollars from me for my work permit processing. I live in Saudi Arabia and know Qatar as well. There is no Asia street or Jazi tower there. I wrote emails to Continental Tours and Gulf Petroleum both and told them that i will be visiting Qatar in coming week and i need your location map as i couldn't find the address mentioned on the web site. There is no answer from them till now. I think we should report this to relevant authorities in Qatar.

Hi,I also received the same offer without interview. Its looks a fake due to the following reasons
LOGO not matching
Appointment letter format is not standard
working timings are not real (25 hrs p/week its impossible)
Benefits - not real like 5 bedroom duplex villa, totota camry 2012 etc
No company letter head
Email offer received from gmail address
continental travel services demanding $1350 that too only by WESTERN UNION
Based on above facts its fake, fake, fake
Guys dont become the victims

If you also check the websites:
you will find that they are not professional at all...
also another company has the exact same website: www.gupico.com
these are really fishy...

I found this very interesting thread, since Al Jazi Tower, 950 Asia Street in Doha, Qatar is apparently the address of Maersk Oil:
Maersk Oil Qatar AS
Al Jazi Tower, 950 Asia Street, P.O. Box 22050
Tel: +974 4401 3301
Fax: +974 4401 3403
Don't really know what to say, as I was also unable to find the Al Jazi Tower, 950 Asia Street.

the above information was very helpful before i could have fallen for this scam, $13500 and with a $1100 per week pocket money, Five Bed room Vila, Toyata Camary 2012,children education. they have changed their Company address to 78 Ali bin Abi Talib street, Al Assey Area, Near Mamoora Flyover PO BOX 22016 Doha Qattar Tel: 974-778-36690 Fax: 974-440-00010.
This time around they changed their agent as well, Concord Tourism Services PO BOX 27018 Al-Nuija east 16130, Al Hilal Doha Qatar.
if you just read the offer letter their are many things that do not match
this is BS! please watch out

Well, damn. I work in Kuwait as a military contractor and know nothing of oil business, but got the same offer letter. I didn't dig as far as you guys did. I appreciate the homework you all did. First mistake on their end, came to my junk mail. Second mistake, the 25 hour thing. The comment above about them changing their address to the Ali bin Abi Talib street sealed the deal. Won't even bother contacting Concord Services. Also, maybe I am spoiled as an American, but all companies incur the expense to get you visa'd, licensed, etc. Oh well, too good to be true was REALLY too good to be true.

I have just received an email for submitting the resume for this company, But I just saw this on google comments, this type of email are constantly coming for he jobs, because these people knows that 'in every country unemployment rate is very high' that's why they are playing with everyone. Be vigilant and careful about these emails.

My issue was not with Gulf Petroleum but with a company called Gulf Petrochemical Company Ltd and a fellow by the name of Alireza Haghighi and his affiliate company in Turkey called Glory Ic Ve Dis Tic Ltd, STI and another gentleman named Mr Umit Hacioglu of the same company. They claimed to be sellers of various petro chemicals that would ship from Turkey or Malaysia. We foolishly transfered $30,000 USD as a payment on a shipment of glycol but the product was never shipped, nor did they return calls or emails when the deposit was requested to be returned. Not sure if either company is even legitimate but they advertise on companies like Alibaba and Trade Key. Beware of either of these companies or either of these gentlemen if they are even real people!!
