Global Recruiters, Dubai, UAE
Global Recruiters is the name of what appears to be a job recruitment
organisation in Dubai. We say "appears" because there are several
indicators that make us question whether they really do what they claim,
in addition to numerous forum postings on the internet from people who
claim they have been victims of a scam or con from a Global Recruiters
/ Global Recruitment Resources organisation. Note that there are several organisations with similar names around the world, that are not connected to the dubious Dubai agency.
Other worldwide Global Recruitment organisations, not related to Global Recruiters Dubai
- Global Recruiters Network (GRN) - appears to be a legitimate organisation with offices or franchises around the world, and no connection to the Dubai Global Recruiters
- Global Recruiters of ... - GRN Global Recruiters Network franchise offices are called GRN Global Recruiters of ... that city (or state, or country?). If someone ever establishes a GRN Global Recruiters of Dubai, it could become confusing.
- Global Recruitment Agency - based in India or Senegal? Seems to operate in the same way as the Dubai Global Recruiters. Be careful.

Resources Corporation - based in New Jersey, USA. Doesn't seem to have
any connection with the Global Recruitment in Dubai

Global Recruitment Dubai organisations

- Global Recruitment Services - looks like a different and unrelated organisation based in Dubai. Tel +971-4-3350078, PO Box 34761, www.global-recruit.com. Unconfirmed if genuine or not. Latest news update on website is from 2007.
The Global Recruiters company that Dubai teachers should be concerned with, says on their website that
they have offices in Dubai and London. The Dubai office address doesn't
make sense to us for a number of reasons, and indicates at the very
least, an unfamiliarity with Dubai that should be a warning sign to
any job applicants. Here's a list of organisations that may or probably have connections
to Global Recruiters (and the relevant discussion topic in the forum
where you can add your own comments, and read previous comments)...
Information pages and/or other institutes and organisations with similar job advertisements (be careful, confirm the organisation and job exists before applying, and don't send any money for visas or other claimed expenses).
- Maggit School or Maggit Language School, Academy, Institute? Magit? Maggot? Magic Language Institute Dubai? No information supplied or found, appears to be a fake institute.
- Zina Academy - apparently in Dubai but doesn't exist in the UAE anywhere. There is a real Zina Academy in Nigeria but has nothing to do with the alleged Zina institute in Dubai.
Other possible job scams (might not be directly associated with Global Recruitment but all the red flags are similar or the same)

There were also hospital jobs advertised by Global Recruiters which
appeared to be for a non-existent
hospital. This page will be updated when we find out more.
Some of the websites that appear to be connected to Global Recruiters.
Note the clever way they've got official looking websites for a couple
of UAE government organisations - they have even framed the official
website in their own website to give them an air of legitimacy. The
domain extension .tk is for the Tokelau Islands, and the domain names
are available free to anyone on request.
Update February 2008
The Gulf News (a UAE
newspaper) investigated Global Recruiters and called them a bogus/scam
operation, and the UAE authorities said they would block some of
the Global Recruiters websites (which is only effective in the UAE though).
