The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has warned the public against job offers circulating on social media, especially on Facebook.

“Do not deal with unlicensed recruiters as they cannot guarantee your safety, good working conditions, and salaries according to industry standards,” according to Bureau of Immigration (BI) Commissioner Jaime Morente.

The BI said a group of women was apprehended at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) last Sunday (November 17).

Morente said they posed as tourists going to Singapore and Malaysia but were really victims of human trafficking and illegal recruitment.

The immigration bureau also reported they were recruited by a syndicate using Facebook and other social media networking sites to work as household service workers in Dubai.

The immigration chief said not to apply in unlicensed recruiters.

“Chances are you will be intercepted at our ports if you avail the services of fraudsters and illegal recruiters,” Morente said. —AAC (with reports from Aiko Miguel)
