"This is a job that seems too good to be true"
this guy will even call you and speak to you.
There is no employer on this earth, that will hire you and send you money without doing a complete background check, and much more, even from Canada.
Since this is an IT Consulting company, why wouldn't they do a "skype" interview or "FaceTime" or "WebEx". This man will only email or text, and he may ask a few dumb questions by phone, but its a waste of time.
