Dahil sa patuloy na pagtaas ng bilang ng mga taong walang trabaho dito sa Pilipinas, at dahil sa mas mataas na sahod para sa mga manggagawa sa ibang bansa, napipilitan ang karamihan sa mga Pilipino na maging isang Overseas Contract Worker o OFW.
Maswerte ka kung ikaw ay nakapagtapos sa kolehiyo at may magandang educational background, siguradong maganda rin ang magiging trabaho mo sa ibang bansa. Pero sa iba na katulad ko, kadalasan ay nagiging domestic helper o DH, o kaya naman ay factory worker.
Sa kondisyong ito, marami ang hindi nahihiya na gumawa ng mga iligal na bagay sa ibang tao. Nandyan ang mga illegal recruiters at pati na rin ang mga illegal recruitment agencies kaya naman madami ang naloloko dahil sa pagnanais na makapagtrabaho.
Kahit nasa ibang bansa ka na, may pagkakataon pa rin na malilinlang ka ng ibang tao, lalo na kung gusto mong lumipat ng ibang kumpanya o ibang bansa na sa tingin mo ay magiging dahilan ng mas mabilis mong pag-unlad.
Gusto kong ibahagi sa kapwa ko Pilipino ang naging karanasan ko dito sa Taiwan.
Dahil po sa paghahangad ko na magpunta ng Canada para sa mas magandang buhay, tinulungan po ako ng isang agent dito na nagngangalang Jenny Chiu. May computer shop po sila sa tabi ng dorm namin. Matagal na po namin silang kilala kaya agad kaming nagtiwala. Hindi namin alam na pang-front nila ng asawa niyang Taiwanese ang computer shop na iyon. Sabi nya, mga four to six months lang daw po ang processing fee, ang kailangan lang daw po ay pera. Nagbigay po ako ng 6000T dollar na pang processing feee daw po. Tapos after a week ay magbigay na daw ako ng pang down. May ibinigay siyang pangalan at address sa Canada para doon ko ipadala ang pera.
October ng taong 2012 po ay nagpadala ako sa isang Lolita Casiano ng 65000nt na ang katumbas po ay $2000 dahil po gusto ko ng umalis. Pagkaraan po ng limang buwan ay may tumawag sa akin na Susan Huang at ang sabi po nya ay siya na daw po ang magpa-process ng papers ko dahil ipinasa ako sa kanya ni Jenny Chiu. Nasa Canada po sya at isa ring agent. Umabot po ng anim na buwan, wala pa ring balita. Kay Huang na po ako nagpa-follow up. Noong Agosto ng nakaraang taon, marami na po silang sinasabing alibi sa’ken. Na over age na daw po ako at gusto daw po ng employer ay married na. Umabot po ng isang taon eh sila pa ang nagalit sa’ken at huwag daw akong makulit dahil ako na nga daw po ang tinutulungan nila. Nagturuan na po sina Chiu at Huang sa kung sino ang dapat kong kausapin tungkol sa application ko papuntang Canada.
Hanggang sa hindi ko na po sila ma-contact. Na-delete na po ako as Facebook friends nila, yung viber po nila eh wala na pati na rin po yung mga contact numbers nila na meron ako. Kahit po sa computer shop nila ay hindi na ako pinapapasok, at minsan pa nga po ay dalawang oras akong pinaghintay sa labas ng asawang Taiwanese ni Jenny. Hindi ko na po alam kung sino ang hahagilapin ko kina Chiu at Huang, at kahit nga po yung Lolita Casiano hindi na ako sigurado kung may ganoon ngang tao.
Nang magpunta po ako sa Manila and Economic Cultural Office (MECO) sa Taichung, doon ko po nalaman na meron pang labindalawang tao na naging biktima rin ng kasong katulad sa akin. Hanggang ngayon ay wala po akong balita tungkol sa development ng kasong ito o kung nahagilap na si Jenny Chiu na ang sabi ay nasa Pilipinas na daw po. Pero nabalitaan ko po na patuloy pa rin ang kanilang operasyon at pagtanggap ng mga aplikante na papuntang Canada.
Ibinahagi ko ang kwento ng karanasan kong ito dahil gusto kong magsilbi itong babala at aral sa iba pang OFW na dapat palaging maging maingat at huwag basta magtitiwala lalo na sa mga ganitong tao. Mas maganda pa rin pong dumaan tayo sa tamang proseso, kahit pa po matagalan, kesa naman po mapunta ang ating pinaghirapan na ipambayad sa wala.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) called out to all Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Libya to come home immediately after Alert Level 4 was raised.
The latest events in Libya had indicated the place is no longer safe for OFWs to stay as the fight between rival militia groups escalated. Thus, they are requested to register for repatriation in the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli.
The alert level was raised once again because of the extreme security threats to Filipinos, especially in Benghazi. Other factors are the extreme political and security situation, the increasing violence and lawlessness, and the closure of major airports because of fears of the all-out civil wars.
Ever since the start of the crisis in the country, and when DFA raised Alert level 3 on May 29, they have closely monitored the security development while trying not to affect the needs of OFWs in Libya.
The department had also put up hotlines for families of OFWs in Libya where they can call for questions and concerns about the conditions of their relatives.
The Philippine Embassy in Tripoli had already reached out to OFWs in Libya, the Filipino community, and to their employer to inform them of the action made by DFA to the crisis.
The violence existing in Libya had never stopped; instead it just continues to worsen. That is why the Philippine government, thru the Department of Foreign Affairs and its Philippine Embassy in Tripoli, had started operation to repatriate OFWs because of the levelling crisis in the said country. There are an estimated 13,000 Filipinos in Libya, some who may have pass through Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok because of the no-visa requirement. Other OFWs illegally enters the Middle East through these cities.
Families and relatives of OFWs in Libya can ask them to voluntarily come back to the country rather than staying indoors of their apartments and risking their lives in the current situation of the country. OFWs are our modern heroes, but we don’t want them to make their lives at stake just because of better-paying jobs in the Middle East. Safety first, before anything else.
Deployment to Two Countries Stopped by POEA
