MR THOMAS TERRY.
HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER,
Above attachments may look legit. It has the letter head, the email address I received is from a company domain. But, I did some research, the real Britannia Hotels domain is https://www.britanniahotels.com .
I worked in Dubai in HR department and know this. No employer would take money from you to process your visa. If you are selected then you will have to sign the offer letter and forward your passport to your new employer. They will process the visa and will send you the visa with air tickets.
If they ask for you to bear the expense then it's definitely a spam.
I have attached the email body and files I received, so no one gets cheated in the future.
