just called them from the number on their website and the lady said the have no vacancies for any positions at the moment due to the time of year and dont start taking on again until the spring.
Not trying to imply anything, just letting everyone know what I've just been told.
If anyone has or gets any further information, please feel free to correct me

Does it look real? Of course it isn't.

There will doubtless be a small up front fee payable to Capt. Barrington Humphrey in order to progress your application for a job that doesn't exist.

Looks very much like a scam, either to get your personal details for use in other scams including your passport photo or what would follow would be some form of fee request or a request for your bank details. If it looks too good to be true then it isnt true. Also while the business address and website does relate to london river cruises look at the email address he uses @gmail.com which is a giveaway, especially as the river cruise company has a domain registered and hence would be using name@londonrivercruises.com.

Similar adds with a contact address @yahoo.com

I just contacted Captain Barrington about a job, he said a test of my suitability for the role would require me to send him my bank details and PIN number, his brother needs to move a large amount of inheritance money from (unknown African state) to England, if i could then send the money on he would allow me to keep 10% fee for my troubles.

He also said he has a zodiac pro 650 for sale, i will probably buy it as it was only 500 and i dont even have to worry about collecting it, they will freight it to me......how good is that!
