This scammer is connected to a series of UAW fake job scams as indicated below. He lives in Dubai, UAE having emigrated from Cameroon.

He came to our attention because money stolen from a victim of a UAE fake job scam was deposited to a bank account in his name at Emirates NBD branch located at Emirates NBD Building, Al Barsha 2, Dubai BD. The scam started with the fake job scam website - http://www.addelloil.com As is typical with these UAE job scams, the victim is directed to a fake travel agency website, in this case, http://seabrizz.com, which is supposed to arrange for a visa, work permit, etc. The victim is sent a UAE job offer email after they fill out an “interview” which they received via email. Once the victim submits answers to the “interview questions” he is offered the fake job. Sometimes the scammers just send out a job offer which is supposedly based on the victim’s CV or resume which scammers typically find on job portals where job seekers post their resumes. Other times there will be a telephone "interview."

United Arab Emigrants’ law requires the employer to cover all work permit/labor/immigration costs for workers. To get around this, the scammers claim that they have paid costs for prior employees who have decided not to take the job and they were out the money. So they propose that the victim pay all the work permit/labor/immigration costs and they will be reimbursed. As a further incentive, the scammers claim that they will advance one or two months salary in order to cover the costs of work permit/immigration. At this point, two more fake companies appear. A fake bank which will supposedly handle the advance of the salary and a fake UAE immigration agency which will supposedly issue the fake work permit, immigration papers and any other fake document the scammers conjure up. In this case, the fake bank is www.qadirbae.com and the fake immigration agency domain is Employmentassociation-uae.com. Both of these fake domain/websites are controlled by the scammer and/or his accomplices.

You can see the first in a series of scam emails below:

Now that the victim has been introduced to all these fake companies and believes they exist, the scammer Eugene Armand Essombe, begins demanding and receiving money for various fake immigration and labor card fees. Note that if the “Employment Association UAE” were real, its domain “Employmentassociation-uae.com” would have ended in .ae not .com. All real government websites in the UAE end in .ae. Moreover, no real government agency would have requested money be paid to a bank account, never mind a bank account which is in the name of an individual!

Through this series of emails the scammer has managed to convince the victim to pay $54,200 into his bank account. Of course the victim will not receive any advance salary or be reimbursed from his “expenses” as Addel Oil does not exist. If the victim had stated he didn’t have the money, the scammer would have volunteered to pay some of the expense or urged the victim to take out a loan. Once the victim pays one phony fee, there will be another one, and they will continue until the victim has no more money or has gotten wise to the scam.

The irony is the cost for a work permit and visa rarely cost more than $2000 which UAE law states the employer is to pay. See https://government.ae/en/information-an ... ncy-permit

The scammer Eugene Armand Essombe is connected to the four websites mentioned above. You can see them below with links to the posts where they are profiled and the telephone numbers the scammer used for each fake company.
