Beware of job ads using fake POEA FB

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration advises Filipino jobseekers to be cautious of supposed employment opportunities offered in social media, especially in Facebook pages and masquerading as POEA-owned accounts.

POEA Administrator Bernard P. Olalia said there is a proliferation of fake Facebook pages that falsely use the name and logo of the POEA to advertise job vacancies in countries like Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, and the United States.

Administrator Olalia warned that these are not verified or approved by the POEA.

Olalia named some of such fake POEA Facebook pages as POEA Job Hirings in New Zealand, POEA Jobs Online, OFW POEA Jobs Abroad, POEA Jobs Abroad, POEA Job Hiring USA, POEA Job Hiring Australia, POEA Job Hiring UK, POEA Job Agency Hiring, POEA Trabaho Abroad Hiring, POEA Jobs in Dubai, Work Abroad-POEA Licensed Company, and POEA Accredited Licensed Agency.

The FB page “POEA Job Hirings in New Zealand” was reported to have posted ads of supposed vacancies of Honda New Zealand that target Filipino workers. The company has since denied any active recruitment activity in the Philippines or any country outside New Zealand.

Olalia said facebook.com/poea.gov.ph is the official Facebook account of the POEA. It has a blue checkmark signifying that it is authentic as verified by Facebook itself.

Applicants are advised to confirm first with the POEA the validity of the jobs offered through email and social media by using the online verification system at the website poea.gov.ph or by calling telephone hotlines 8722-1144 and 8722-1155.  # # #

Mag-ingat sa mga alok na trabaho gamit ang pekeng POEA FB

Pinapayuhan ng Philippine Overseas Employment Administration ang mga Filipinong naghahanap ng trabaho na maging maingat sa mga inaalok na trabaho sa social media, lalo na sa mga Facebook pages na nagpapanggap na pag-aari ng POEA ang FB account.

Sinabi ni POEA Administrator Bernard P. Olalia na may naglalabasang Facebook page na ginagamit ang pangalan at logo ng POEA para mag-anunsiyo ng bakanteng trabaho sa ibang bansa tulad ng Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, at sa United States.

Pinaalalahanan ni Administrator Olalia na ito ay hindi binerepika o inaprobahan ng POEA.

Pinangalanan ni Olalia ang ilan sa mga nasabing pekeng POEA Facebook pages gaya ng POEA Job Hirings in New Zealand, POEA Jobs Online, OFW POEA Jobs Abroad, POEA Jobs Abroad, POEA Job Hiring USA, POEA Job Hiring Australia, POEA Job Hiring UK, POEA Job Agency Hiring, POEA Trabaho Abroad Hiring, POEA Jobs in Dubai, Work Abroad-POEA Licensed Company, at POEA Accredited Licensed Agency.

Ang FB page “POEA Job Hirings in New Zealand” ay naiulat na naglathala na may bakanteng trabaho sa Honda New Zealand na umanoý nangangailangan ng manggagawang Filipino. Itinanggi ng kompanya na sila ay nagre-recruit sa Pilipinas o sa alinmang bansa sa labas ng New Zealand.

Sinabi ni Olalia na ang facebook.com/poea.gov.ph ang opisyal na Facebook account ng POEA. Ito ay may blue checkmark bilang tanda na totoo ito na binerepika mismo ng Facebook.

Pinapayuhan ang mga aplikante na ikumpirma muna sa POEA kung balido ang mga trabahong iniaalok sa kanila gamit ang email at social media sa pamamagitan ng online verification system sa website poea.gov.ph o tumawag sa telephone hotlines 8722-1144 at 8722-1155. # # #
