Hi dogman,

Thank you for posting this information. If you were wondering if it is a scam. Yes it definitely is. If any person were to follow the orders of "Capt. Brown" they would be directed to contact the fake travel agency [email protected] and from there they would face demands to pay equally fake visa/travel/immigration fees, usually by western union or moneygram.

Any person wishing to work outside their own country would be advised to contact the applicable embassy officals in their own country first.

Amble is a small fishing port in Northumberland, some 300 miles north of London. Scammers often include "London" in UK addresses for no known reason.
I have to confess to never having heard of it until today, so I've no idea why a scammer is using it in a scam.

It's common for 419 scammers to add London at the end of any UK address because they believe it makes it look more genuine. :roll:

Northumberland is nowhere near London, and no one in Northumberland would include London in their address.

There is a yacht building company at the address they have mentioned in Northumberland, but the scammer appears not to understand the difference between a yacht and a ship. :shock:

From the jobs mentioned in the advertisment it would appear to be a subtantial ship being crewed with a minimum of 50-100 people working on board, though I note that no mention is made of seamen to run and operate the vessel. Then you have to add passengers on top of that.

Cruise ships do sail to Norway, but the North Sea is notoriously rough and only the adventurous would attempt it in a yacht.

This scammer is not very clever.

Non-EU citizens should go here to find out about obtaining a visa to work as an au pair in the UK
Whenever payment is requested by Western Union you're dealing with a scammer
