2 nabbed for alleged illegal recruitment in Manila

The Criminal Investigation and Detection Group's Anti-Transnational Crime Unit arrested Friday morning two alleged illegal recruiters who duped some P400,000 from their victims.
CIDG ATCU director Supt. Roque Merdegia identified the suspects as Luz Barroga and Gloria Sanchez, both of Pangasinan province.??
They were arrested around 7 a.m. inside a fast food chain outlet on Vito Cruz in Manila upon receipt of marked money from their eight victims.
The victims filed a complaint against the suspects when they learned that the two were not accredited by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration to recruit workers for abroad.
They said the suspects have promised to send them to Japan to work as dairy farm workers.
The victims said they have already paid P50,000 each to the suspects for placement fee, medical fee, and other expenses for the processing of their documents.
The suspects allegedly continue to demand money from the victims despite failure to fulfill their promise.
Charges of large scale illegal recruitment and large scale estafa are being prepared against the suspects, according to the police. —Amita Legaspi/KBK, GMA News
