POEA issues warning on fake job ads on social media

Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration has issued an advisory about bogus job advertisements that proliferate on social media.

Cacdac said applicants for overseas jobs should be wary of “employment opportunities” advertised in Facebook and Twitter, especially those using the name of legitimate businesses abroad and licensed recruitment agencies in the Philippines as modus operandi.

He cited the case of a Philippine licensed recruitment agency which was advertised as recruiting Filipino workers for supposed jobs in Austria and Spain. The agency has clarified that it has not posted the said ads and it has no job orders for the two countries.

Cacdac said jobseekers should ensure the authenticity of job offers posted on Facebook and Twitter by calling the POEA hotlines 7221144 and 7221155 and its regional offices; using the online verification system at the POEA application for smart phones.
