Check this tip from WorkAbroad.ph Facebook page.

Be Wary of Unsolicited Job Offers via Email

Kabayan, huwag pumatol sa mga nagkalat na job offer sa email lalo na kung hindi naman kayo nag-apply sa kumpanya na ito. Karamihan rin sa mga scammer ay gumagamit ng legitimate company upang makapangloko.

Kapag ikaw ay sinisingil nila ng work permit o plane ticket at ang offer sayo ay “too good to be true”- maliwanag po na sila ay scam. Kaya huwag na itong pansinin pa upang hindi mabiktima.

Kabayan, dumaan lang sa legal na paraan.

Email Scams Targets Filipino Nurses

Posted by:

An advisory from the POEA warns nurses and other medical workers against the proliferation of overseas job scams that are being offered via email. Previous advisories from POEA informed that there are email scams that offer non-existent jobs for medical workers in countries like Canada, Australia, United Kingdom and United States of America.

To lure nurses and caregivers, Cacdac said that in the past emails, the scammers are using the names of famous hospitals overseas such as Queensway Carleton Hospital, Stevenson Memorial Hospital, Shouldice Hospital, and Fraser Health in  Canada; Sydney Adventist Hospital in Australia. The latest advisory revealed that email scams are also offering jobs in Singapore.

The POEA Chief, Hans Leo J. Cacdac was informed of this new email scam through Mr. Tan Zhiyi, the Human Resource Division of Singapore General Hospital which reported that they have received a number of inquiries from Filipino workers who are verifying job offers sent through the following email addresses: singaporegenhosp@zoho.com, singaporegeneralhosp @ojooo.com and singaporegenhosp@hush.com.

According to Cacdac, Tan said that they are not using the email addresses mentioned because their official emails use the internet address sgh.com.sg.

In the said email, the recipient are asked to send Php3,800 through bank deposit as payment for the visa interview. The Singapore-based official also denied that their company owns the bank account mentioned in the email.

Beware of Job Scam in Italy

Posted by:

Philippine officials in Rome issued an advisory to warn aspiring overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) against fake email offers for various jobs in Italy. Apparently, the bogus email promises various employment opportunities supposedly for the reconstruction project of L’Aquila in Italy.

A 6.2-magnitude earthquake caused great damage to L’Aquila, a mountainous city in Italy last April 2009. This natural calamity claimed the lives of over 260 people and left 28,000 homeless.

The reconstruction project that would provide many job opportunities is supposedly under the Auspices of World Rehabilitation Program (WRP) and Italian Freedom Corps (IFC). The Philippine Embassy in Rome also informed that the swindlers use the email address projecto_laquila@rome.com and the office address “Via Sicilia 162/C.”
