Scam lures seafarers to Australia

ADVERTISEMENT

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) issued alerts to a global scam offering overseas residents a Maritime Security Identification Card (MSIC) and Australian visas to gain jobs with cruise companies according to a report by The Maritime Executive.


Scammers have targeted people in several countries via emails with bogus cruise lines, including Silver Cruise and Princess Line Australia, and a relevant visa on the completion of paperwork of the inaccurately named “Australia Maritime Security Identification Card” (AMSIC).


An official-looking but fraudulent form was sent to people who responded to the email. Anyone who receives the scam email or has fallen victim to the scam should contact local police authorities.
