What email address did "International Cruise Liner" use to contact you?And can you post the original email from them (the Moderators will remove it if it proves to be legitimate)

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

http://www.maukerja.my/job/international-cruise-liner is not the website of "International Cruise Liner". It is just the website of a company that accepts internet ads. A "company" using a free email address is always very suspicious and most likely has no website. Read www.scamwebsites.tk Also, any request for money to be sent via Western Union or MoneyGram is always a scam. Even if you send the money to a friend or relative the scammer can still claim it!
