I applied for a job through email in Sheraton Centre Hotel, Ottawa Canada. Wonder if the emails I received are legit from the immigration?

They asked me to $326 and that's it. And Sheraton Centre hotel also responded telling me I have to pay it right away within 5 days or else my visa process will be rejected. Is anyone familiar with their hiring process? Please help.

    100% garbage.

    A regional coordinator of an official office having an AOL email address? Really?

    And asking for payment in US dollar???

    This is pure scam.

    Don't send any money.

    MANY MANY fraudsters in the world.

    THINK for a moment.

    A Hotel thousands of kilometres away has guaranteed you a job and never seen you.

    CANADIAN businesses do not charge money for potential employees to apply.

    There is no real place in Canada called Canada Immigration Bureau Ottawa visa service department.

    Government of Canada has a Visa office in the Philippines.

    Booking an appointment* with VFS Global to submit your Canada visa application is a free service. Beware of persons who may demand payment for it.

    Believe it or not CANADA does not have jobs for everyone in the world that wants one.

    The Sheraton Ottawa Hotel is a step away from Parliament Hill. Never heard of Sheraton Centre Hotel.

    Your money is gone and your Identity could be compromised. KEEP A CHECK on your bank accounts and credit information.

    They will respond you need just a little more money for just one more form to speed up the process.

    HEED the information from the Government of Canada. They are the ones that issue the visa.

    Canada has MILLIONS that apply. Be honest What makes YOU a better Hotel employee than others from around the world or already in Canada.

    They have little need to hire from outside the local area.

    It is a total scam. Hotels CANNOT hire overseas workers. And, even if they did, they would pay you; it would cost you nothing.

    This is a pretty common scam.

    I'm very familiar with htis hiring process because people have been asking this same question for years. It's kind of sad to see it coming back again.

    The answer is this hiring process is a scam! The whole set up is to get ou to pay that money.

    What's the first clue for you? There IS NO Sheraton Centre Hotel, Ottawa.

    SCAM The letters from immigration were probably scams too. Report it to Ottawa police though it could have come fromoutside Canada.

    Not only are they scamming you for money, they want you to send your passport so they can sell that information! Legitimate companies don't hire that way. If you don't believe us, CALL the Sheraton and ASK.

    Of course it's a scam.

    On top of all the other signs of it being a fake, do you really believe the Sheraton or its legal firm would be using an AOL.com email address?

      Thank you for enlightening me. It really is just so sad. I really want to apply for a job abroad and I currently live in the Philippines. Good thing, I asked.
