After reading the mail, i Googled for Omni Hotel and yeah this fine hotel really exist but there are lots of pages in the google results which discussed this particular email as another Nigerian scam. I also checked the official Omni Hotel website and there is no such advertisement.

It's sad to think some people from poor and developing countries like most of Asia and Africa could fall into this scheme in hope of better income working in Canada. Imagine, you don't have to pay anything to work abroad and further more when you got an offer you have no idea how they came to reach your inbox. Please be careful, if you receive an email of this sort just delete it specially if you feel it's too good to be true.

    This scam of a thing is getting excessive, and I think it's time the gorvenment world wide take serious look at it and take decisive action. Putting strong pressure on the goverment of the countries this email are mostly generated, and engaging INTERPOL to track the individual involve in the scam with a serious punishment for anybody guilty of the offence will really help. Most importantly we need to recognize the global nature of this problem and be sincere with it. The phone number in this particular scam letter is not even Nigeria phone number, then why posted it as Nigeria Scam?
