Soon, she received an exciting job offer from ‘Sofitel Abu Dhabi’, an email came along with a document containing the contract, which included a salary for a hostess position at the hotel.

“One guy answered me and told me that I was selected and they will send me the flight ticket”
She was offered over AED13k a month plus some seriously tempting benefits
The fake employer offered her travel allowance, accommodation and opportunities for salary bonus
She was told the hotel would pay for her flight to the UAE, but she soon realised the offer was fake and immediately contacted the hotel.
