Warning: Canadian Immigration Consultancy is not a Recruitment Agency


Our not so dear Senator Sotto once said that immitation is the highest form of flattery in his defense for the alleged plagiarism thrown against him.  But we know better, of course. That kind of response sucks.  Why I mentioned this is because just recently, I learned that Gateway to Canada was being used by online scammers in victimizing job seekers online.  Here's a picture I took when a blog reader showed me the email she received.


The email says it came from Immgration Bureau Ottawa and used once of this blog's previous banners with my picture! She was being offered a job from Victoria Hotel in Canada.

IMMIGRATION BUREAU OTTAWA, CANADA. 

DEAR APPLICANT(s),
            I WANT TO CONGRATULATE YOU FOR YOUR SUCCESSFUL INTERVIEW ANSWERS
             WE ARE SET TO SERVE YOU TO YOUR MAXIMUM SATISFACTION, WE HAVE SEEN YOUR ANSWERS,BUT BEFORE WE COMMENCE WITH ANY OTHER PROCESSMENT THAT WILL LEAD TO THE RELEASE OF YOUR VISA PIN CODE NUMBERS WE HAVE TO VERIFY THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTS AND ALSO TO KEEP THE CANADIAN EMBASSY IN YOUR COUNTRY INFORMED WITH YOUR INFORMATION FOR THEIR AWARENESS AND CONFIRMATION.
The blog reader almost fell for it and it's a good thing she clicked the banner and learned about the real Canadian Immigration Consultancy.   

We are not a recruitment agency and we do not offer job placements.  To learn more about online scams, read this: Interenet Scam Alert
