Dear Friends,

I just received yet another email from an obviously fake cruise ship job offer claiming to be from MSC Cruises UK (which is a legitimate company itself).

Before showing an example copy of the email below for your reference, please enlighten yourselves with the facts on how these scammers operate and visit http://www.cruiselinesjobs.com/another-cruise-ship-job-scam and then http://www.cruiselinesjobs.com/cruise-ship-jobs-scam

Basically just keep in mind; if something seems too good to be true, it usually is.

So be careful, ensure you always do your due diligence and good luck in your music job searching.

All the best,
Rand

Hi Rand,

Did this person send you a direct email only? Was there anything else that you saw on the site regarding this user?

We will do the best that we can to take care of this...

I received the exact same email....decided to Google msc cruises to check it out and their website said no recruiter from any professional company will send an email via q free email address, eg: yahoo, gmail, hotmail etc.. So check the sender before applying for anything!

Hi Chad,

I'm not aware of any connection between this particular email and Musicians Page. I just received this fake-job email out of the blue, like others from time to time.

It's inevitable to get these and other odds and ends occasionally if one has music profiles and ads scattered about online.

That's why I placed the notice on your General Forums; to help spread awareness of these potential problems. Here's another link worth reading too:


Again, don't trust anything on face value; when in doubt - check it out.

Cheers,
Rand

Great Rand,

Yes, It's good that we address this - We try to keep on top of everything that we can and this definitely helps make Musicians' Page a better place.

Best,


Chad
