Scam alerts

Scam alerts

Job scams are on the increase. The people behind the scams pose as recruitment agents or HR managers and are using more and more sophisticated ways to make the jobs they advertise look real.  They use email addresses and fake websites that look and feel like the real thing and, increasingly, using direct contact methods like WhatsApp, Viber and Linkedin.

The ITF receives hundreds of reports of scams each year and of seafarers who have fallen victim to a scam.

The Scams Alert page provides a way to check for scams, fake companies and websites
