I received a mail from Holiday Inn Kensington Forum stating that they are looking for musicians. This is a scam and this member should be removed from this site.

After they wrote to me first time saying they didn't want to publicize it I was given an email to write to supposedly a recruitment email at Holiday Inn Kensington. I was told to send my resume etc. and told that my material screened byt the music dept. head who was looking to replace 5 ....... yes FIVE bands . Can you imagine the Holiday Inn having five bands, plus it is extremely difficult to get a residency contract in Englan as hotels use the locals. The English in the email was atrocious so that also raised my suspicion. So I did a little searching and found some info on the net which said that the so called head of recruitment did not infact exist and the email addresses using @london are frequently used by scammers. The phone numbers given are all apparently mobile numbers anyway.
After the second email I sent them an email back telling them to get an honest job like the rest of us and not to be parasites.
But even as I sent it, I received a third email saying that my material had been viewed and I was chosen.... WOW

Hope this is helpful

This Holiday Inn Kensington is now listed as Black Sea Cruise Hotel and Suites. And after applying they immediately send you out an Employment Contract. I actually called the number listed and got a Russian sounding man speaking such poor english that I couldn't understand even one word.

I got something very similar today which is April 16th 2013. They are now calling themselves the Black Sea Cruise Hotel And Suite. With the same exact address. They send you to a website that is actually "Vacations To Go." And they've never heard of this hotel.
