Is This Scam Or Real? by Mekanus(m): 7:30am On Jul 13, 2021
Hi, nairalanders. A friend called me some days ago from Lagos and told me about a company he works with and said that they're currently recruiting. He forwarded me the company's email address and told me to send my CV, which I did. Just this morning, I got a reply mail from the company stating that my CV has been verified and confirmed. The company's name is Quest International Company PLC. Please does anyone know about this company in Lagos? I have checked Google and couldn't find any info about them, the only quest international I'm seeing is the one based in the USA. I need some input from you all as people can't be trusted these days. Attached is the email I got from them.

I just sent the CV to see if I can get more information from the company through the mail. The information the friend is giving me about the company is somewhat suspicious. He said they're into importation of jewelry, machines, water dispenser... The one that got me really suspicious is that he said they pay in dollars and I would need to open a dollar account with #400,000, imagine.

That documentation fee alone is a big red flag

I can see some red flags already. Be yourself and be cautious

Is your friend looking like someone being paid in Dollars ? If no, run for your life. If yes, confirm the reliability of the company.

You need to scan your friend very well so that you won't end like this cry
Re: Is This Scam Or Real? by adedam23(m): 10:50am On Jul 13, 2021
We also need to be careful with the usage of the word "friend" sef. A friend wouldn't think of scamming his "friend". A little trick here sha: ask him to lend you the account opening money or maybe part sef, his reactions will tell you what to do next

It is suspicious indeed. I got a call from a childhood friend, she told me same thing. That I'll bring 450k for registration undecided I'm like, where will an applicant get such money from. She said I should look for where to borrow from. The one that even surprised me was when she said, they pay every two weeks. So I told her I'll think about it

That your friend is a thief, avoid people like that as friends. I have them. Both the ones that post fake like on social media and come to your inbox to beg for urgent 5k. Delete such people from your contact list
