    for sure that's a scam - a employer would not write to you suddenly to provide you a job. you've not utilized to them, and also you've not had an interview - so how will you get a job with this meant employer? I guess they're going to be soliciting for money from you too, supposedly to rearrange lodging and a visa. total pretend.
