Apparently these companies send the victims a fake visa approval letter on behalf of the Malaysian Immigration Department and ask them to pay for the processing fee ( same common story ). Some people lost more than 5000 USD. The victims are from many countries around the globe such as India, Norway, Indonesia, Belgium, Brazil ..etc. So please beware of this kind of companies if you came across their websites or advertisements. Make sure you won’t pay anything in advance to get the Work Permit in Malaysia.
The report says :
Some of you have informed us about the unusual practice of some Malaysian companies or individuals previously registered in our directory of recruitment agents (they have been removed from the list). They require the candidates to pay for the service in advance but have never provided a job to any of them. Instead, they produce a certificate and email it to the job seeker. We have a strong reason to suspect the employment offers to people who recently contacted companies under the following names to be a scam:
1) Shipping Planet
2) Salsa Cruise
3) Vigo Cruises
5) Transways Logistics
6) Mutus Cruises
7) Starline Cruises
8) CruiseQueenliner (Cruise Queenliner)
9) Canadian Cruise Shipping
10) Royal Cruiseliner (Royal Cruise Liner)
11) Skylines Cruise International
12) Pan American Cruise Corporation (Berverly Hills)
13) Hawks Marine Cruises International (Canada)
