Online Job Scams -- The Love Boat It Ain't

My character got an online job offer from Princess Cruise Lines Australia.

Uh huh.

The "cruise line" -- with emphasis unknowingly on "line" -- needs gullible people to think they're getting a really cushy job down under.

And when they pay the processing fees, they find themselves SS Minnowed.

My pet rock, Seymour -- who claims to have spent time as ballast on the Nina, the Pinta or the Stinky -- thought he had the perfect edit for this scam job email.  Perhaps Captain Bligh will agree.


Uh...that wasn't the Captain or Tennille.  At any rate, here's the job "offer" as received:

"You want to go to sea with us? You MUST be joking!"

My pet rock had momentary delusions of sailing the seven seas as a celebrated passenger and not as ballast; alas, after that edit, he'd be lucky to draw a ballast assignment.


Okay, maybe as a motor mate 2nd.

You can always sail first class on our vessel Seymour. I'm just saying.

I think you did a mighty fine job on this edit.

Have a fabulous day. My best to your dad and Element. ☺
