Fraud warning

It has come to our attention that a group of individuals has been extending fraudulent offers of employment to people residing within and outside of Canada. Individuals are being asked to forward on their personal information so that the immigration process can commence.

At Sylvite, we would conduct a personal interview with you prior to any offers of employment being extended. We would never ask for you to provide any money. Also, we would not ask you to provide information for an LMO process prior to an interview, offer and acceptance of same.

We are recommending that you do not respond to any emails extending an unsolicited offer of employment. If you do receive an email of this nature we suggest that you ignore and report it to your local police department. If you have any questions regarding any email received you can contact
