Scam Alert! University Of Southwales And Jobberman by kcwitch(m): 1:34pm On Nov 03, 2015
Hi all,
Sometime ago I got a mail from jobberman informing me of a scholarship to study in the uk. Although it was online, I registered with my details and all, the next thing was a call from a UK number notifying me of my application online. She ended the call saying they will send me an email, I should check my SPAM folder. (I don't trust any mail that goes to the SPAM folder though). Suspicion started from there. She kept calling since I didn't respond, afterall, they need 35pounds eh? Small money for application.

I don't know Jobberman's role in this though. But I checked the website through an online checker and got some info. The domain is .com not even .uk and the original school site is .ac.uk not .com They also have the following websites under their "business". They are so good, they disabled the website operator location. Other webpages

Most of us have heard of UNICAF and know it is genuine.
The question here is, is it possible it has been hijacked by scammers and some unsuspecting people have been duped of their money?

I had same doubts as well. The most shocking/suspicious part was how I easily gained admission without much stress. I had to call the school(USW) to confirm this and they actually sent me a mail confirming the genuineness of the admission though they still referred me to my UNICAF student advisor. The motivating factor is that my certificate will read USW and wouldn't read UNICAF neither will it state that I did the course online. I just paid the application fee and part of my tuition, will resume classes soon and hope to come out with record-breaking grades.

So guys, it's real. In case of any doubt. Call the school using the number on their official website or send them a mail.
