Overseas Job Seekers Target by Online Scams

Posted by:

Once again, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration or POEA had reiterated its warning for Filipino jobseekers who wants to work abroad.

Online scams are seen prevalent on most social media accounts like Facebook.  POEA Anti-Illegal Recruitment Department lawyer Rosemari Duquez said that these types of online scams can be easily distinguished because of the discrepancies it promises to Filipino jobseekers.

According to Duquez, these social media scams usually:

  • Promise quick deployment;
  •  no experience needed;
  • no license required;
  • no placement or processing fees;
  • Hassle-free processing of their documents for working abroad.

Such social media scams intend to victimize Filipino jobseekers who want to work as nurses and caregivers in countries like Canada and Australia.  Many Filipinos are enticed to grab the offer because these first-world countries are rich and known to give higher salaries and better benefits.

POEA also said that companies or agencies behind these scams can only be reached through email and was not in POEA’s list of accredited agencies.

POEA further explained that all overseas Filipino workers or OFWs need to go through strict deployment so that the Philippine government can protect them against forms of injustices abroad.

The name of the recruitment agency, what their overseas jobs would be, and the name of the employer should be checked on POEA’s website to confirm their legality. POEA’s mobile application can also be downloaded to have access anywhere you are with your smartphone.

Filipino jobseekers and OFWs dealing directly with companies abroad are reminded that they still have to process their documents with POEA for issuance of job permits and to be documented overseas workers.

OFWs were warned vs offers for certain jobs in Canada

OFWs were warned against accepting offers for certain jobs in the food service sector in Canada.

Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) head Hans J. Cacdac said the Minister of Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) moratorium is in effect on the food services sector’s access to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program.

The moratorium covers occupations in establishments engaged in preparing meals, snacks and beverages for immediate consumption include: food counter attendants, kitchen helpers, restaurant and food service managers, food service supervisors, food and beverage servers, cashiers, chefs, cooks, bakers, sales, marketing and advertising managers, executive housekeepers, cleaning supervisors, butchers, meat cutters and fishmongers, sales representatives, retail salespersons and sales clerks, hosts/hostesses, bartenders, janitors and caretakers.

The moratorium also in response to allegations that the program was being abused to displace Canadian workers.

POEA head said the moratorium will remain until the completion of the ongoing Canadian government review of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program.

With the moratorium, they will not process any new or pending application for Labor Market Opinion (LMO) and no work permit for temporary foreign workers will be approved.

However, the suspension does not include food service activities that occur within establishments such as amusement and recreation parks, hotels, theaters and civic/social associations, but leased food-service locations in facilities such as shopping malls, department stores, airports and hotels are included.
