This is obviously similar to that of Omni Hotel Scam. But to better guide you, read about my previous entry, Guaranteed Visas and Jobs in Canada.

By the way, David Cohen is a real immigration lawyer and I'm sure he has nothing to do with that email.

So if you receive similar job offer from Marriot Hotel, think again before sending that money.
