Scam Alert: Rampant Fake Job Offers to Canada

Posted by:

POEA Admin Hans Leo Cacdac warned Filipino applicants to be wary of the fake job offers that are circulating right now. On his Facebook post, Admin Cacdac stated:

“Mag-ingat po sa email na kumakalat na nag-aalok daw ng trabaho sa Shriners Hospital for Children sa Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Heto ang mga elemento ng peke o bogus na modus operandi:

  • Ang nagpadala ng email ay tila taga Shriners Hospital for Children (kennethguidera@shrinershopsitalsforchildren.info);
  • Recruitment kuno ng caregivers, nurse aides, midwives, therapists — graduate or undergraduate, with or without PRC license daw; illegal
  • No experience required kuno, no examinations required kuno, no placement fee kuno;
  • May seminar na kailangang puntahan at bayaran ng P3,760;
  • May recruitment agency daw na pinangalanan, pero sa huli ay direct hiring or name hiring arrangement naman daw;
  • Padala daw ng resume o bio-data sa isang email address; at
  • Kailangan daw magmadali kasi “first pay, first reserve basis”.

 

HETO NAMAN PO ANG MGA ELEMENTO KAYA’T HINDI DAPAT PATULAN ITO:

  1. NANININGIL NG PERA.
  2. NAGMAMADALI.
  3. PURO MINATAMIS NA PANG-AKIT (NO PLACEMENT FEE, NO PRC LICENSE. NO EXAMS, ETC.).
  4. MAY LICENSED RECRUITER DAW, PERO DIRECT HIRING NAMAN.
  5. HINDI HO ESTILO O SISTE NG FOREIGN EMPLOYER, LALO NA SA CANADA, NA SUMULAT NG EMAIL.

HUWAG NA HUWAG HONG PATULAN ITO. MAGING MATALINO, HUWAG MAGPALOKO!

 

Hindi nagkukulang ng paalala ang mga authorities ukol sa mga illegal recruiters. We also have the responsibility to protect ourselves from these dangerous elements. Sino nga ba namang gustong maloko? We just have to be curious and be aware para hindi tayo mabiktima. Agree or not?
