Aspiring OFWs warned vs. fake overseas job offers


Aspiring overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) were warned by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) about a new online scam that offers fake employment to Canada, Mexico and Europe.

POEA Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac announced in an advisory that Omegal Manpower Services Limited, the recruitment agency offering the overseas job through e-mail in exchange for a placement fee, is illegitimate and does not exist.

Cacdac also added that overseas job applicants should ignore unsolicited emails that offer jobs in hotels and hospitals but requires to pay fees for testing, interview and language seminar or visa orientation.

He also encouraged aspiring OFWs to check with POEA if the recruitment agency they’re dealing with is legal or licensed to avoid being victims of illegal schemes.

Overseas Filipino workers were asked to validate first the authenticity of job offers through POEA’s website, mobile application or telephone hotlines at 722-1144 and 722-1155.
