Cruise Ship Employment Scam !!

Bookmark and Share

Some of you have informed us about the unusual practice of some Malaysian companies or individuals previously registered in our directory of recruitment agents (they have been removed from the list). They require the candidates to pay for the service in advance but have never provided a job to any of them. Instead, they produce a certificate and email it to the job seeker.

We have a strong reason to suspect the employment offers to people who recently contacted companies under the following names to be a scam:

  • Shipping Planet
  • Salsa Cruise
  • Vigo Cruises
  • Starcruise
  • Transways Logistics
  • Mutus Cruises
  • Starline Cruises
  • CruiseQueenliner (Cruise Queenliner)
  • Canadian Cruise Shipping
  • Royal Cruiseliner (Royal Cruise Liner)
  • Skylines Cruise International
  • Pan American Cruise Corporation (Berverly Hills)
  • Hawks Marine Cruises International (Canada)

We have a reason to suspect their certificates are not issued by the Department of Immigration in Malaysia (as they claim) but are false.

Please consider this warning to be our independent advice and opinion.

There has been a lot of cruise ship recruitment scams that I have read about. I think that this is not right but I do know on how good cruise ship jobs are so I guess it is easy for those scammers to convince people of their money.
