    They said this to my girlfriend back in JANUARY. She had her interview on the Wednesday and the man on the phone said that it was the last few days of considering people for the internship and that he was on the selection committee so would definitely put her name forward.
    It is clear to see that they have said this to everyone and told everyone that it is the "last few days of deciding".
    This was for picking people, the meeting last week was supposed to be for placing people

    I am in the same situation, add me on facebook ¨vlad grff¨ and lets create a page and discuss about this internship. If it turns to be ok there is no problem. If it turns to be a scam we should do something all together to make a difference !! 400 pounds is a lot of money!

    its definately not a scam i know can come across dodgy, but when people say the company are not replying to yourself, they have a number listed on the internet follow that and you will get in touch with them your self. i believe they changed there name to European medical assistance last year that's why there isn't much information on them, but i have met up with them to speak to them about the internship, they obviously need money to make sure the participant is dedicated to the internship. Also they have many people on the phones to take any queries and any time i have had problems they have either dealt with it over the phone or emailed me back within a day. They have corresponded with my university to use this as my work exp, and that went fine. They offer internship for various places as well and just started for New York for business applicants so just be patient and wait and if you have any query's give them a call.
    When they rang me for the phone interview, they said they needed the deposit cos some people get the free flights to new york and don't turn up at the offices!

    The internship that my girlfriend went for was one in New York with the marketing and PR department. I was a bit confused why you quoted me and said "where we were being placed" but she already knew that she was going to New York as that is the location that she applied for. What have you applied for?

    Well if you look on their website there is a list of all the offices such as Athens, Madrid and Faro. On all of the websites the internship was advertised on they also included Miami and San Deigo. I can't find anything anywhere about New York.

    I thought that too! Could've saved so many people. They said they need more people to phone about it I think. But it was weird cause when I phoned and explained the situation they said 'it isn't European Medical Assistance is it?' So I think they'd heard a few times before but just not enough to go by.

    They are supposed to deal with the case no matter, it shouldn't make a difference if it effects 10 or 10,000 people, they should be doing something about it
