Scams and fake jobs

Watch out - scammers may try to get hold of your money and personal documentation by offering non-existent jobs.  Some look highly professional and it's all too easy to fall into their trap.

On these pages we provide guidance on how to identify a scam, both on cargo and cruise vessels.  We also give details of the scams we know about and real-life stories from seafarers who have been scammed.
