Cruise lines do use agents to hire crew members but you would never be required to wire money by Western Union. 100% for sure this is not a real agent for any cruise line. But that said the agents do charge a fee once you have a firm job order in place and before you travel. The normal deal is a payment equal to one months pay. When you sign the agreement to work in most cases you also turn over your passport so the correct visas can be done. You also pay 1/2 of the fee, your passport is not return until you are ready to fly and the other half will need to be paid.
