3 October 2017 – The Philippine Consulate General in Vancouver would like to call attention to the rising incidence of fraudulent online recruitment schemes for jobs in Canada. The public is advised to be careful in dealing online with companies, persons or other entities offering jobs in Canada, as these may be a form of a job recruitment scam.
The following are some of the familiar modus operandi and features of a bogus or fraudulent online job offer:
Unsolicited email from someone or some company who claims to have found your email online, and that your qualifications match their “job requirements”;
High-paying jobs that require little or no experience;
If any of these features are present, or if there is any doubt about the authenticity, validity or legality of the job offer, applicants or any interested parties are advised to consult with or report the matter to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) or the nearest Philippine Embassy, Consulate, or Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO).
