Job and Recruiting Emails:
UK Skill Maker Recruitment Agency

Have you received an recruiting email like the ones below, claiming to be from

  • Alexander Bruno
  • Others?

We have yet to hear from A SINGLE PERSON who has received a job through them.  If you have received a job through UK Skill Maker Recruitment Agency or the others above, or have anything positive to say about them - PLEASE WRITE US! So far, all we have seen is very suspicious, at best. A search of Google turns up absolutely NOTHING about them - we have NEVER experienced that with an established, legitimate company of this type. Also, their address is actually the address of the Canadian Immigration service in London - NOT affiliated with this at all!

CFR RECOMMENDS THAT YOU DO NOT CONTACT THEM, PAY THEM, OR GIVE THEM ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION!

Do you have a resume posted online? We'd like to hear from you about your experiences recruiting emails that turned out to be scams or misleading - click here to write us.. We suspect these are possibly a new wave of identity theft attacks.

Note: There ARE legitimate recruiting and employment firms on the internet, and some with very similar names to those above.  We recommend you check any company out before you give any personal information to them.  If they do not have a posted address and phone number, or don't answer the phone, don't give them any personal information! The legal recruiters will be happy to give you contact information, return calls and act in the open!


What to do, if you DID fill out their form:

Report it to the following government agencies:

  • Forward the email you received to the Federal Trade Commission: spam@uce.gov  
  • Contact the FBI (United States Federal Bureau of Investigation) at the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)
  • Contact your State Attorneys General. Your state Attorney General or local office of consumer protection is also listed in the government pages of your telephone book

    Below are a number of these suspicious emails received by our staff:
