Hi MarekMericko,
Today, I got an email from the same address. I was suspicious so I searched the web and found your post. Did you find out what is happening? They're asking me to transfer a big amount of money to start processing my application. What's weird is that I was accepted without even an interview.

Any time money is required, you have a red flag right there. This can be at any point during the hiring procedure, say in the original job ad or during a subsequent telephone conversation. Money may be requested for various reasons - to pay for a background check on you, to cover work permit application costs etc. Terminate the application immediately.
