SCAM ALERT

Postby JollyJack » Fri Jan 24, 2014 6:17 am

They're at it again! I had an enquiry about a British management company called Royal Marine Authority, which is a new one on me! The e-mail address looks a bit dodgy ".gb.net", (should be co.uk for a UK address, looks like this is to a .net website) the street address given (40, Ely Place, London EC1N 6SN) is a church (look it up on Google Street view) and the telephone number (+44 7053 856597) comes back as "not in service" or, sometimes, "must be connected by an operator". They want money up front, always a gigantic red flag, for documents which, if you are joining a foreign flag ship, the Manager always provides.

The Saga e-mail address given on the "Employment Letter" is given as SAGA CRUISES.

Head Office: Enbrook Park, Sandgate,

Folkestone, Kent CT20 3SE,

UnitedKingdom.


The e-mail address and tel number at Saga HR dept is given on the Saga website as:


Please call our HR team on 01303 774707, from 9.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday or email you question into human.resources@saga.co.uk

Note THAT e-mail ends in .co.uk the proper form.

Here is what the scam letter says:

---------- Forwarded message ----------

Dear ,

We would like to use this opportunity to congratulate you and also to inform you that you have been chosen by the management as one of the applicants to be employed in our company. Attached to this email are your Employment Letter, the company's "General Terms and Condition" and your Employment Contract for you to sign and return back to us.

As for your employment process, you will have to acquire your UK Seafarers Identity Document (SID) and Certificate of Equivalent Competency (CEC), which is required by the British Law for both UK citizen and foreign workers before they can work in any Luxurious Cruise Ship or Yacht that is sailing from the United Kingdom. These documents will also grant you access into the United Kingdom as they serve as your working visa in the Marine Sector. So there will be no need to apply for visa again after you have procured these documents.

Kindly contact Mr. Colin Harland of the ROYAL MARINE AUTHORITY to put you through with the process of acquiring your UK SID and CEC document by email at legal@royalmarineauthority.gb.net or call +447053856597.

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation and hope to work with you in the future as a SAGA CRUISES Staff.

Ahhh yes, the old Visa Fee upfront scam. Straight up scam for sure.

Fees of any kind for employment are against the law.
