Be wary of FB pages promising cash, jobs – DOLE

The labor department has warned the public against bogus Facebook pages promising cash or prizes in exchange for likes and shares as well as those purportedly hiring for employment.

“Verify the registration of such companies with appropriate government agencies before engaging with them, especially in providing information,” DOLE warned.

The alert came after DOLE acted on a complaint against a certain company named ‘Eternal Investment’ alleging that it is gathering people on Facebook and assigning them to job positions on a voluntary or commission basis.

Recruits are allegedly assigned to positions such as executives, managers, and graphic artists.

The complaint also claimed that ‘Eternal Investment’ is reportedly “manipulating people and not paying proper dues based on the output of the volunteers.”

Upon coordination with the Department of Trade and Industry, it was found out that ‘Eternal Investment’ is not on the DTI’s list of registered businesses.

The said company is not also registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

To protect the public, the labor department’s Bureau of Local Employment brought the complaint to the Enforcement and Investor Protection Department of SEC for further investigation. # # #GSR

Mag-ingat sa mga FB pages na nangangako ng pera, trabaho – DOLE

Naglabas ng babala ang labor department sa publiko laban sa mga pekeng Facebook pages na nangangako ng pera o premyo kapalit ng likes at shares gayundin iyong nag-aalok ng trabaho.

“Beripikahin ang rehistro ng mga nasabing kompanya mula sa mga kinauukulang ahensiya ng pamahalaan bago sila makipag-transaksiyon, lalo na sa pagbibigay ng kanilang impormasyon,” babala ng DOLE.

Nagbigay-paalala ang DOLE matapos nitong aksyunan ang reklamo laban sa isang kompanya na pinangalanang ‘Eternal Investment’ na diumano’y nangangalap ng tao sa Facebook at binibigyan ng trabaho bilang boluntaryo o commission basis.

Ang mga na-recruit ay bibigyan ng posisyon tulad ng executive, manager, at graphic artist.

Batay din sa reklamo, “minamanipula ng ‘Eternal Investment’ ang mga tao at hindi binabayaran ng sapat batay sa kanilang ginawang trabaho bilang volunteer.”

Sa pakikipag-ugnayan sa Department of Trade and Industry, napag-alaman na ang ‘Eternal Investment’ ay wala sa listahan ng mga rehistradong negosyo sa DTI.

Hindi rin naka-rehistro ang nasabing kompanya sa Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Para protektahan ang publiko, inilapit ng Bureau of Local Employment ng labor department ang reklamo sa Enforcement and Investor Protection Department ng SEC para sa karagdagang imbestigasyon. ###GSR/gmea
