Default Hiring Scam

I heard on the radio today while driving home from work about a scam targeting people who would like Cruise Ship jobs.
It seems someone ran an add here in Alabama and advertised that Carnival was hiring. ( They sail out of Mobile, Al ) You corresponded and sent $ 250 for uniforms. The mailing address for sending the money was in Canada. There was a Carnival representative on the radio stating that Carnival does not hire in this manner and to be on alert for this add or similar adds.
Apparently eight people in my area ( Birmingham ) had mailed the $ 250 into the supplied mailing address.
Be aware !

Yeah, I'm from the area too and I heard about that. But to me, it seemed a little fishy anyway, you know?

I see a new AD is posted here on this board about paying a fee for someone to do a resume for you and sending it to all the cruise lines..
