Este post é mais um alerta para as meninas que sonham em morar na Europa, especialmente na Inglaterra. Leiam atentamente o que aconteceu comigo:
Eu tenho procurado uma nova family no site kangaroo Au Pair, me candidatei para diversas vagas na Irlanda e em outros países também.
Na semana passada uma família Inglesa me contactou para ser Au Pair de uma menina de 3 anos em Londres, me enviaram algumas fotos também, porém mal trocamos e-mails e fui aprovada, me vi numa sinuca de bico daquelas.A família me ofereceu 250,00 pounds por semana, se ofereceu para pagar os meus custos de viagem, me matricular em um curso de inglês, dias off para viajar, enfim... uma proposta irrecusável. Eu disse que só poderia ir em abril, eles também não se importaram. Como diz o ditado popular: Quando a esmola é demais o santo desconfia.
Sendo assim eu pedi para conversar com eles por Skype, eles disseram infelizmente que não tinha, ou seja eles me aceitaram sem muitas burocracias, nem sabiam meu nível de inglês, acreditaram fielmente em todas as informações que eu passei.
Ontem eu fiz algumas pesquisas, li em comunidades no orkut que tem muitas famílias fakes e quadrilhas que "contratam" Au Pairs na Inglaterra, li que não deveria pagar nada caso eles viessem com um papo de agência, visto ou coisas do tipo, porque eles cobram taxas para o tal visto e depois simplesmente desaparecem. Eu tenho passaporte europeu, então não teria problemas com isto. Isso já aconteceu com diversas pessoas, inclusive tem casos de escravidão sexual. Todo cuidado é pouco, não é somente no Brasil que existem pessoas maldosas, isso pode acontecer em qualquer lugar.
Só para ter mais certeza, ontem eu enviei um e-mail para a família de um outro e-mail que eu tenho, disse que sou Espanhola, amo crianças e gostaria muito de uma oportunidade para ser Au Pair... hoje ao abrir o e-mail a família respondeu dizendo que gostou muito do contato, pediu para enviar CV e mais a mesma história que me falaram. Eu respondi que não tenho mais interesse nesta falsa família.
Estou muito indignada com isso, tem aparecido muitas vagas falsas de emprego e não temos como denunciar, as pessoas se aproveitam de pessoas que precisam trabalhar para aplicar golpes. Sinto-me completamente impotente diante disso tudo.
Segue abaixo os e-mails que recebi da suposta família:
