Consulate Warns vs. Scam Promising Jobs in Ontario

The Philippine government has warned would-be overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), particularly those in the health profession, about a scam offering non-existent jobs in a facility in Ontario.

According to the Philippine Consulate General in Toronto, which issued the warning, the scam is targeting nurses and others in health-oriented professions in the Philippines by offering them jobs as caregivers at Ian Anderson House, an in-resident cancer hospice in Oakville, Ontario.

The Consulate General said it received a report that an invitation is being circulated through e-mail for a two-day seminar supposedly scheduled for March 7 and 8 in the Philippines where invited participants are asked to pay a P3,800.00 seminar fee in exchange for guaranteed employment at the facility.

The invitation allegedly comes from Primera purchase xanax online Human Resource Services, it said.

Upon consultation with a representative of Ian Anderson House, however, the Consulate General has verified that the facility is not seeking employees or offering employment opportunities at this time.

The Ian Anderson House has also denied it is connected with the purported seminar.

A check with the website of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) reveals that while Primera Human Resource Services is a licensed agency, it does not have approved job orders for Canada.

“In view of the above, the public is strongly urged to exercise caution when responding to the abovementioned or similar offers of employment, and to verify the same with the POEA to avoid being victimized by unscrupulous individuals,” the consulate said.
