Here are our top 10 tops to help you stay safe when applying for
jobs online. Always stop and think before you share your personal
and or financial information. Credible employers and agencies will
not charge you a fee for a role.
- Never Provide Sensitive Financial or Personal
Never share any financial information such as your
security number, bank account PIN, PayPal, or credit card
information. There's no reason a recruiter or employer would ever
require any such information from you.
- Never agree to a wire transfer of any sort.
You should never be asked for a wire transfer or to send
money for a foreign visa via anything other than an official
embassy site. Do not send money via a money gram or western union.
If you're asked to pay for a foreign visa, please check on the
relevant government website.
- Don't pay a recruiter in return for finding you a job
or providing job leads.
Reputable recruiters are well paid by the company for
whom they place candidates. If anyone asks you for money in
exchange for a cruise job in our name - it is illegal.
- Be wary of job postings or
emails that state, no experience or expertise is required for the
All of our legitimate job openings will have some sort of
job description that includes information about education, skills
and experience required to qualify for the position. If you are
offered a job without an interview - this will not be real.
- Carefully examine the
email details and websites of unsolicited job offers.
Our legitimate email address must be (firstname.lastname@example.org
/ email@example.com). Emails that claim to be a legitimate
V. Ships Leisure company but then have a return email address with
a general (free) email site (such as firstname.lastname@example.org) and not the
company email address are not to be trusted.
- Request more details from
prospective employers who provide little or no details in their job
postings or emails.
Unclear promises can be very persuasive, but the truth
lies in the details. You can request detailed information about the
services we provide or the job from one of our legitimate
recruiters and they will immediately answer you.
- Ignore postings that
guarantee you a job
These scammers basically provide you with information
about their offer of employment but asking for a large fee. We
never ask for a fee, instead we asked for your full latest resume
and will request references, qualifications and proof of previous
- Don't be swayed by any
testimonials saying that we provided a job even you don't have the
These are simply marketing gimmicks designed to make you
feel more at ease in falling for the scam.
- Use the internet to
research all job opportunities
Do a background check of the prospective
employer. Most cruise lines will have a scam warning to
advise which email addresses can be trusted.
- Stop and think…
Remember to think twice or more before responding to any
job posting or email that promises you easy embarkation in one of
our Luxury Cruise ships, and be cautious of unsolicited offers from
what appears on the surface as to be one of our legitimate
company. Legitimate companies will always conduct interviews
and background checks. Salaries are fair on ships but they
are not always higher than land, so be cautious of anyone offering
very high salaries if you have no experience at sea.
If you are a victim of a job scam - you will not be able to get
the money back. You need to contact your relevant authorities to
report the crime. Please be cautious.
