I too received this appointment letter. It's better if anyone could contact the Cargill US office directly or the US embassy in India to have clear information.

i too got offer from same mail id jobs@cargill-usa.com for assistant manager projects. I checked with lot of sources, my findings says

1) company told to apply for a L1 visa, getting US visa these days is too strict. An L1 visa costs approx 1.5 lacks indian currency which is non refundable if u fail in visa application process and clearing the processes are not so easy. L1 visa requires a min exp of 1 year in their sister concern in india which we dont have. So that itself makes it fake.

2) cargill usa's employees mail id ends with @cargill.com not as @cargill-usa.com. For recruiting us(not US) why should companies senior vice president HR should coordinate for everything????

3) The US Consular's mail id which i got was

US Immigration Attach
Contact Person: Consular. Cliff Williams
E-mail: cliffwilliams@usembassy-gov.info

This @usembassy-gov.info is a fake id plus its not registered in US this mail id is owned in UK.

4) To reveal their trick i mailed them as u can deduct the amount from my salary and you arrange visa. for that they sent me appointment letter. thats another point which proves its fake.

I have also received an offer from CARGILL USA from the same mail ID and asked to contact Walter T. Buckner.
Now the US embassy person asking me to submit Rs. 25000.00 to his secretary's HDFC Bank account, which I found pretty suspicious.
I have also asked CARGILL USA to call me back which they have done but while speaking with them I feel uncomfortable as their pronounciation is not like an American and why the hell a Senior Vice President will call me and whenever I am asking for their Phone# they are denying to provide me that.
In my openion this is fraud. But if you got any other updates please share.

Nanak

I had contacted the Cargil Company USA,they clearly told me that its a fake Job offer. They never reach for suitable candidates...you have to go in their Website and apply.
If you are suitable enough they will contact you.

•Let me begin with the most suspicious part – No company will ever send you a word document especially when they are offering a job. Remember this – if it’s not on a letterhead, it’s not official.
•The grammar, sentence structure CLEARLY suggests that it’s written by someone whose first language was not English. (eg. On the first page, the first few lines of the paragraph that starts with However is complete non-sense. I can guess. whoever wrote this did not pay attention when his English teacher was teaching grammar)
•Look closely at the English in the word doc. I wanted to list out all the blunders but there are so many that I dint knew where to start)
•“Encored”…..what does that mean ???
•I have worked with A LOT of Americans, no one ever says 7,500 Dollars. It should be $7500.
•Any official who is directly or indirectly working for a government department will never give his/her mobile number.
•The US Embassy timings are not 09.00 to 05.00. newdelhi.usembassy.gov/hours2.html
•The person who wrote this letter might have never seen an official letter. Poor chap.
•August 13th ?? Seriously ?? Common man, a new job starts on a Monday.
•What does monthly salary and annual salary “takes” home mean ?
•“Working time ??”, “Startup date” which language is this ?
•“You are entitled to 1 month Paid Leave which can be taken once at a time or 2 weeks apart from one different period” – can someone explain what this means ?
•“I shall inform you if there is any other documents you are to produce before the Visa officials in the absent of the documents your employer has sent on your behalf and the ones you are to produce below.” – This sentence is enough to prove that this is written by someone who did not get thru the high school.
•There is a reference of “Xerox Copy”. The last time I checked, its called “Photo Copy” and not Xerox Copy.
•Does it take only 7 working days to get the VISA ?? Might be, if we apply for a visa for Bhutan.

• US Payroll is a biweekly which means you get paid for every two weeks and not for the month.
• I pity the guy who wrote these letters. He should have at least copied the language from someone else’s offer letter. This looks soo amateur.
• A first year stock broker in NYC do not get $90,000 as take home salary.
• The visa fees as per the website is $190 and not $450 as mentioned in the letter.

Do I still need to explain if this is fake or real ?

Gotta a mail from SPX corporation from similar content. They have sent questionnaire and contract agreement, which i stupidly believed and progressed for it and filled all. I searched for SPX scam mail and didnt get anything and proceeded, now again searched for US Immigration Attaché and found this webpage, and searched for chance brown mail and found this webpage

Been a fool over this, please people act over it.
