Type of a scam Employment

My name is XXX and I’ve been searching employment boards for administration jobs. My resume is posted on BCjobs.ca as well as Indeed. I was recently approached (did not apply for position) by 3Dlabs via email asking if I’d be interested in the admin post for, the soon to be opened, Surrey location. They specified that I was not to call the Company but was to respond via email, which I did.
Upon checking on the business, using the web site provided, I found very little information so I then tried through Google. The only thing I can find is that it is/was an engineering (semiconductors) company that was taken over by an American entity.
Last week I got another email, early in the morning, that said ‘someone from our office will be contacting you soon to discuss the position, please ensure you are available for the call’. This very unprofessional communication (no date or time given) coupled with the lack of Company information made me wonder if this was a legitimate offer. Then I got a call, on the same day, from the number listed below asking only to describe myself in 3 words and asking if I was still interested in the position. The woman did not answer my questions about the Company; said she’d have another staff member respond to them. Canada 411 shows the 902 number under another business name and, upon checking the web site number for THAT company, I call and was told that 902-704-1570 was a number they had disconnected several years ago.
I’ve not heard a word until I received the below captioned email this afternoon. After many years in finance I’ve learnt to proceed with caution when my ‘gut feelings’ are yelling ‘scam’ and this supposed offer (where I’m told that monies will be sent to me to arrange accommodations etc, when I’ve not yet met anyone from the Company) is also beginning to suggest a money laundering/transfer issue.
Due to the reasons listed above I am reaching out to the ScamPulse.com 1) to find out if this is a legitimate company opening a new office in the area and 2) to allow you to notify the appropriate authorities (or let me know who I should contact) if there are issues.
I thank you for your time, XXX
