“Warning – false DFDS-SEAWAYS website

It has come to DFDS’ attention that certain unconnected parties are using the DFDS Seaways name and layout as a way of offering jobs on the premise of extracting cash for visas / work permits from unsuspecting job applicants. These parties are in no way connected with DFDS and have no jobs to offer at our company. Currently, we would like to warn against DFDS Seaways Inc., the website www.dfds-seaways.ca and use of the email addresses: office@dfds-seaways.ca and travel.sales@dfds-seaways.ca. DFDS has taken appropriate action to have the website removed.”
