Sydney Adventist Hospital Email - Scam or not?


When I first received this email, I was surprised, excited and then a little bit wary. Being a Google fan, of course I quickly looked it up and found the very, credible looking website of Sydney Adventist Hospital. 
So I posted it in my other blog and was hoping that someone can leave a message if they got the message too.

Is it a crime to be hopeful and optimistic? I mean, I post my resume online for the purpose that employers could see it, so like an answer to a prayer, it just might be possible that an employer/employers would pick out my resume among a million of other applicants and include me for this opportunity.

Here's the email from Sydney Adventist Hospital that they sent me. Broke it up into parts.

I did not copy paste everything. Yup, it was a long email. And as you read it, it's really too good to be true. I keep saying that but it is. If you analyze it, if no one fails the exam that means even if you're not qualified, you get hired?!

If employers were these nice, and everything is nearly free, why can't they just make the training free?

A lot of people have their comments already at my wordpress blog here if you want to read them. Some have paid the training fee and even got some unfriendly responses after they have paid when they inquired. Some don't even get any response at all afterwards.

Nurses should not have to suffer being taken advantaged of. We are already doing free labor when we volunteer for free. And lastly, fellow Filipinos should not do this to other Filipinos.

I hope the people who do this get some karma. >.<
