Maris Subsea, a respected employment agency and part of the Global Energy group, wishes to announce that their advert copy has been harvested and used in other websites to perpetrate a jobs scam.
Note: This news items has been posted by ROVworld webmaster with full prior consent from Maris Subsea.
On Thursday 22nd April 2010 it was brought to the attention of Maris Subsea that someone had swiped their job advert copy and used it on other websites such as www.seadiscovery.com to advertise ROV and other Maris Subsea vacancies but with fake contact details.
The fake company details are as follows:
Contact: Pamela Copper
Address: Office Address: 36 Long Acre Covent Garden London
London WC2E 9RZ
PLEASE NOTE that these people are in NO WAY affiliated or related to ANY of the Global Energy Group companies - and in fact ANY company at all (they seem to have hijacked other adverts)
If you Google the email domain @sbluecou.com it has been used in multiple Fake Lottery/Advance Fee '419' scams.
If you access ANY job advert with these details PLEASE DO NOT phone the telephone number or attempt to apply via email or direct. This is an attempt to obtain your personal details. Although the number looks like a legit UK number dialling it leads to a non-UK dialtone. The person who brought this to our attention actually managed to get someone at the other end who then rushed him off the phone.
On Thursday Maris Subsea contacted the publishers of www.seadiscovery.com and got them to remove all of the advertised jobs from this 'company' on ALL of their websites but they will appear elsewhere so forewarned is forearmed!
Please pass this information on to anyone you know who would be looking at Marine/ROV/Subsea/Survey/Inspection related jobs INCLUDING Marine Crew.
PS - If you see these folks advertising on other websites PLEASE either get in touch with me OR the main publishing contact of that website ASAP. Please feel free to send them my contact details or direct them to this post.
