Hi All, I received an email with job offer from Fednav (Montreal), saying that they have also submitted documents to Canada high-commission too.
We just had one call with basic interview question, nothing technical at all. They are not asking me for any personal detail, except for my name, passport number and mobile number (no bank details asked). The company website has no "software engineer" position listed. They are not requesting any money as well.
I am pasting the mail here. I got 2 attachment documents as well, one with job conditions, saying all expenses will be bourne by the company and other document is an invitation letter. Need suggestion if this is a fake mail.
(I have deleted the telephone number of johnson white, as this portal wasnt letting me post this thread otherwise)

Could you please elaborate what made you see its a fake offer, so I can be aware of any future scams too.
Real employers never pay for transportation, accommodations or food.

Also, there are multiple instances of bad language / sentences that don't make sense. For example, "feeding" is not at all a proper use of this word.

Also the fact they are asking you to rush your response is a very standard scammer tactic.

And to add to scylla's post:

A ridiculous salary given as after-tax and in USD.

No company anywhere is going to go through the trouble and expense of hiring a foreign worker without an interview.

If you are still in doubt, also want to point out that "12.00noon to 2.00pm. " 2 hours official lunch break is unheard of in Canada. (most office have 30 to 1 hr lunch)
And when has "software engineer" becomes "manpower job where anybody is fit to work ". LOL
Didn't read the whole email but spotted those 2 places. The wordings in general is really weird.
