This blog is not frequently updated because most case-by-case scam reports are now listed in subordinate blogs. At this point in time, most of my efforts are targeted at documenting employment scams in the Suckers Wanted blog.


Info: Cruise Ship Job Scams

My interest was piqued by a couple of recent odd-looking job scams. Usually job scams offer you a position which involves illegal money laundering (under the guise of "financial officer" or similar), but these recent scams talk about jobs on cruise ships. A little bit of digging reveals that this is a case of Advance Fee Fraud: if you apply for the job, they'll tell you that you need to pay a certain amount of money to get government approval for something or other, and then something else, and something else, and so on for as long as they can keep bleeding cash out of you. At the end of the day, you'll have a pile of expensive fake documents and no job.
