If you are looking for a job in Dubai and if you are asked to open a bank account or give out your bank details before you have had an interview and have been given a written job offer then this is a red flag. The crooks will try many angles to convince you. For instance the account is required for money transfers that are part of your job. Stay away from these jobs as you will end up giving your money to them and will never see it again.

Regardless of Dubai being a muslim country and everone is honourable and their word is considered the truth. Do not believe it, because, the gangs are international operators from all corners of the world.

If you perspective employer does not offer a labour contract, without which you can not work in Dubai, then you should be concerned about it being an illegal operation. Also, the company has to have a bank account in ots own name and make payments and can not use employee account for its benefit.
