Then you will send the information they require and then later you will be sent an employment contract with great compensation scheme. You'll be real excited and then comes the requirement for you transfer money via western union for the cost of courier and other expenses.

Some immediately pay, while some others finally realize that something is wrong.

Sometimes, you'll just receive an unexpected email. But they also post vacancies to job posting sites and since you remember sending them your resume,you will not suspect its a scam. But it is!

IF you're dealing direct with the employer who wanted to hire you, you will not be required to pay anything. If they can't even afford to pay the courier fee, how can they afford to pay you the promised salary?

Notice the email address used? It's a yahoo.ca email account! Well, just because the email sender used a yahoo account does not necessarily mean it's a scam. But it should at least make you curious.

Here's a comprehensive guideline from POEA website to avoid overseas employment scams.
