    Hi guys Been emailing Mr. James Woods Human Resource Officer Saga Cruise U.K Also received an appointment letter by a Mr Richard Morgan, dated and signed Nogal Did a bit of digging and found that these names are actually people within the cruise line industry but these Con-Artists have obviously used their names to cash in on the Desperate Job Seeker Name and Shame them guys

    OMG, ever since I graduated I have been searching for work desperately. When I saw the advert for new crew members I became excited and applied. Got an email asking me to answer some questions. I don't know why but something made me google the name Richard Morgan to see if he was on any credible sites like linkedin and this came up. I am so happy I did it. I will not go any further with the email. I have been searching other recruitment agencies too coz somethings are just fishy. From now on I'm going to do that with every job I apply to. Thank you so much for this post!

    Thanks for reporting this as I was also communicating with this person by the name "Mr. Richard Morgan" and I thought I should just check him and also the Agency (JIMDO TRAVEL AGENCY) out before continuing. I found that the agency has also been reported on Thanks for the heads up! Hopefully other applicants will see this.
