I, Kele, have the following thoughts/comments on this suspected fraudulent email message from “Kele”:
Thanks for your email regarding the Security Certificate; we also contacted the immigration experts to know while they have directed you to obtain the certificate from Republic of Guinea; he inform us that your Visa application stated that you are from Africa and all the African employees that work onboard International Cruise ship here in Australia obtain the certificate from Guinea.
The immigration experts inform us that they don`t issue the certificate in your country South Africa for onboard employee; you don`t have to worry about where you obtain the certificate hence the immigration experts has directed to their office.
You know that you’re working program is completely based onboard and the visa process involved is different from offshore employment. You have to send the certificate charges to them so they can process it on your name.
We are only responsible for employees Visa fee, flight ticket and accommodation.
