Job Scammers in Facebook (POEA warns)

A Warning from POEA regarding Job Scammers:

“News Release
June 22, 2018
Beware of job scammers on Facebook
The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration reiterates its warning on the proliferation of fake overseas jobs posted by scammers on Facebook and other job portals.
Scammers post on Facebook pages supposed vacancies of international
companies for various positions. The job offer includes high salary, free
transportation, free food and accommodation, high overtime pay rate, paid
vacation leave and other benefits.
However, applicants are required to pay for expenses allegedly for processing of documents including visa or work permit. The POEA recently received queries from several job applicants about “Now Hiring Work Abroad 2018”, a public group on Facebook with advertisements offering alleged jobs in Canada, United States, New Zealand, Japan, Australia, United Kingdom and other developed countries. The ads entice readers to email their resume to a job portal.
An applicant said he received an email informing him that his application for the United Kingdom has been approved but was advised to deposit within 48 hours the amount of Php9,800.00 for visa fee to an account in a Philippine bank.
Any job offer through e-mail and social media which requires payment of fees for seminar, documentation, and processing of visa and other travel documents is a sure sign of a scam.
POEA advises applicants to validatethe authenticity of job offers with the POEA through its verification system at poea.gov.ph, hotlines 7221144 and 7221155, and POEA mobile phone application which is downloadable via Google Play or Apple’s App Store. /END

Mag-ingat sa mga job scammers online.
Ang karaniwang modus ng mga scammers na ganito ay ang magsabi na mayroon (daw) job offers partikular sa mga bansang mauunlad gaya ng Japan, UK, Canada, US, New Zealand at Australia. Papangakuan din nila ang aplikante ng mga magagandang benepisyo gaya ng, No Placement Fee, free accomodation,free  food allowance, free airline ticket, etc.

Kasabay nito ay ang biglaang paghingi ng pera sa aplikante na ilalaan daw para sa processing fee, work permit at visa.

Upang makaiwas sa mga job scammers na ganito ay mas mabuting mag-apply sa mga licensed recruitment agencies na may mga lehitimong tanggapan. Huwag din dapat basta-bastang iniiwan ang mga contacts gaya ng email o phone numbers sa mga comments section ng mga social media gaya ng Facebook. Ito ang laging inaabangan ng mga job scammers.
Kung hinihinalang job scammer ang kausap ay hingian kaagad ng IDs. Mas maigi kung government IDs. Huwag ding mag-atubiling tumawag at magtanong sa POEA Hotlines na 722 1144 / 722 1155.
