This scam has been going on for at least 2-3 years. There is no Mrs Rose Grand. She does not work for a hotel. The person who sent you that email does not even live in Canada. Often these are scams originating from African countries like Nigeria, where the laws on cyber-crime are not yet established.

The email is from a bunch of criminals that will do one of two things:

1) They will try to get money from you to process your job offer. As long as you keep sending your money to them, they will keep up your hopes that there is a job available.

2) They will steal your identity. They need passport numbers and names from around the world so they can make FAKE passports using your name and number. You may later find your name has been added to a country's no-fly list, and it will be difficult for you to get on any plane.

NEVER EVER answer emails that are sent to you from suspicious sources. A legitimate company will never use a gmail, hotmail, or yahoo email account. Always go onto the internet and research any names or addresses that you receive by email or see on a website.

My advice is that you should report this scam to your local police, and contact your country's passport office to report the incident. You MAY need to replace the passport and get a new passport ID to be safe. Also, PLEASE tell all your friends and family about this. It may be embarrassing to be fooled like this, but the only way to stop these scams is to make sure everyone knows about them.
