PINOY OFWs Beware of New E-Mail Scam
an email scam has been recently reported targeting the PINOY Overseas Contract Workers (OFWs).
the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) advised everyone to ignore emails telling them they have qualified and may apply as a nurse or caregiver at the Canadian Virtual Hospice in Winnipeg, Canada.
the said email further added that applying for the job does not have hidden charges and that the employer will shoulder the airfare, work permit fee, and working visa (sounds interesting huh?). now the catch… the candidate is told to pay at a designated Western Union and/or LBC account, for the coaching and medical exam fees and to reserve a slot at the embassy for the coaching seminar.
its unnerving how some take advantage of people who are just trying to earn a better and honest living. please share this, be aware.
