Does anyone have a system provided by this company? I recently received the below offer and I am wondering if it is legitimate. Can't be too careful on the internet these days. Everyone wants some of my money it seems. They had my full name listed in the email. I am registered on their webisite and have been for several years. Thanks for any help.--Gary

I hope you are well and having a good day.

I am writing to you as I believe we may be able to assist one another. Vesseltracker is a leading AIS provider, which provides maritime organizations across the globe with vital information required in the maritime industry. Our services are customized to suite the challenges of the day to day operations of companies or individuals who need up to date information on their vessels.

We are continuously looking for new locations to cover and are happy to partner with organizations or individuals who may be interested in a mutually beneficial arrangement.

With regards to the partnership we will provide the partner (you or your company) with a free access to Terrestrisch & Satelliten AIS Tracking Service in Realtime - for life, for which we usually charge between USD800 and USD1500 per year, we will additionally provide you with your own vessel tracking system, for which we will cover the costs for (usually USD1100), including antenna, receiver and computer/converter. Please remember we are only looking for one partner in each area.

All that is required is a location close to the local port/ocean with a clear view of the ocean or water way, a 24/7 internet connect, and the only fee to the partner is the actually delivery cost, which is either UPS or DHL standard.

  • Fleet management, all your vessels will be highlighted and tracked which enables you to view each of your vessels accurately.
  • Specially designed version for smart phone access.

"Does anyone have a system provided by this company?"

Outside the shipping industry I don't see anyone who would have a use for it.

"I recently received the below offer and I am wondering if it is legitimate."

Oh it's legitimate, they're looking for you to provide data for the system. Unless your family name is Onassis or Maersk I don't see a need here. For my money into the bit bucket goes SPAM.

Then sometimes when I have nothing else to do I get curious.
