POEA Warns Public of Spam Emails

POEA Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac said the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration does not send mass e-mail and advised recipients of e-mails supposedly coming from his office to ignore them especially those that instruct clicking an attachment.

He said the POEA informs recruitment agencies about administrative actions or decisions on adjudication cases by means of sheriff or courier service but not through e-mail. Cacdac said recipients should treat such e-mails with caution, especially those with attachments.

“E-mail spammers commonly use attachments to sneak viruses into the victim’s computer. They even trick you to into sharing personal information like passwords or credit card numbers”, said Cacdac.

Cacdac said many recruitment agencies reported to him that they received e-mails purportedly coming from the POEA’s official e-mail address with ‘Notice of Suspension’, ‘Banned Agencies’, Suspension/Banned Notification’ and ‘Best Recruitment Agency for 2014’ as subjects. Cacdac said it was easy to detect the e-mail as fraudulent because the sender has no name and position title and the letter was poorly written.

Recruiters of Factory Workers to Japan Face Illegal Recruitment Cases

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration is filing illegal recruitment cases against the owner and staff of an establishment found to have been recruiting  overseas Filipino workers without a valid license or authority from the government.

Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac identified the recruitment agency as Jomhadz International Corporation, and its alleged owner, a certain Joan Sigua.

Operatives of the POEA Anti-Illegal Recruitment Branch and Anti-Transnational Crime Unit (ATCU) of the CIDG closed down last week its main office located at 2nd Floor, Claveria Building, Circumferencial Road, Barangay Dalig, Antipolo City and its satellite office at 1660 Neptuno St., Paco, Manila.

The POEA officers have verified from applicants that Jomhadz International was recruiting Filipino workers for a wine factory in Japan and charges a placement fee of Php150,000.00.

The POEA prosecution team is preparing illegal recruitment charges against Sigua and her staff identified as Jefferson S. Flores, Charton Villanueva, Renalyn P. Cuevas, Renato V. Padilla, and Jason P. Cabus.

The CIDG-ATCU seized from the office employment documents of applicants, including passports, for inventory and as documentary evidence.

Cacdac advised applicants of Johmadz International to proceed to the POEA Anti-Illegal Recruitment Branch for filing of complaints against the recruiters.

POEA Cancels License Of Non-Stop Overseas Employment

Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac has ordered the cancellation of the license of NonStop Overseas Employment Corporation for submitting two different visas and after committing three counts of violation of the POEA regulation on misrepresentation. 

Cacdac said Non-Stop had requested for processing of a worker bound for Qatar with a visa as General Cleaner but after verification was found to be in the category of a Secretary. 

Non-Stop claimed that the real job order for the worker was for the position of secretary and it mistakenly submitted the visa for general cleaner. The agency tried to correct the supposed error and submitted a visa for a secretary. 

Upon further scrutiny, however, the POEA found out that except for the position titles, the two visas have the same issuance and validity dates, visa number, visa type, duration of residence, and other markings. 

Cacdac said Labor Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz has instructed the POEA to prioritize resolution of recruitment violation cases involving household service workers (HSWs) and other low-salaried overseas Filipino workers. 

Section 2 (e) of Rule I, Part VI of the 2002 POEA Rules and Regulations Governing the Recruitment and Employment of Land-based Overseas Workers prohibits licensed recruitment agencies from engaging in acts of misrepresentation in connection with recruitment and placement of workers such as furnishing or publishing any false notice, information or document in relation to recruitment or employment of an OFW.
