We do not have and never have advertised for any jobs on any social media or job platforms. People are being duped into doing translation or 're-typing' work and then having to pay money to prove their ID. The criminals say the payment would be refunded with their wages.
We never solicit for work to be carried out on Telegram, Whatsapp, gmail, linkedin, Instagram, Facebook or any other social media platform.
If you are contacted by anyone on any platform then they are criminals who will steal your time and your money by asking for payment to prove your ID before they can release funds for the work.
We have been contacted by people all over the world so please be vigilant and be suspicious of any jobs advertised on any platform. If you see a job advertised for "Marine Software" then it is totally fake and should be reported to the police with the contact details of the criminals who contacted you.
Please stay alert and don't give away your personal details, time or your money to these criminals.
One individual who has contacted us has provided us of a copy of the fake contract. See pdf Linked here
