PHISHING / SCAM ALERT
There has been an increase in deceitful emails and flyers, sent by fraudsters pretending to be one of our recruitment partners, to prospective MSC Cruises candidates. Their aim is to collect personal information and money.
You should be wary of any recruitment agency or job posting that asks for upfront money online on the promise that you will be contacted with MSC Cruises. They are frauds.
We are working very closely with our IT security teams to ensure those email addresses are shut down to prevent more victims. However, if you believe you have been contacted by one of these fraudsters and received a “too good to be true” opportunity from what appears to be MSC Cruises, please notify us “here”.
