MPD warns anew vs. illegal recruiters as 1 suspect falls

Fresh warning against sweet-talking illegal recruiters operating in the provinces has been raised by the Manila Police District (MPD) following the arrest of a recruiter in Ermita, Manila, who allegedly duped four people with their money totaling P500,000 in exchange for non-existent jobs in Italy.

Superintendent Jose Hidalgo, head of Manila Police District-Station 5 (Ermita), made the alarm as he told Tempo that cases of illegal recruitment for jobs abroad are once again on the rise, so, job applicants should be wary.

“These illegal recruiters pose as representatives of employers abroad and tell their prospects they can facilitate their deployment for high-paying jobs abroad through their connections with the government and embassies,” he said.

Hidalgo identified the arrested suspect as EP Carmona, owner of the EP Carmona Consultancy at Room 603 in Gamito Building, Arquiza corner Alhambra Streets.

He was arrested following the complaint of Helen De Chavez, 35; Vernice Canta, 34; Jay Hayag, 23; and Resentacion Nuestro, 53, all natives of Quezon province.

Authorities also launched a hunt against a certain Divina Gumbol, recruitment officer of the recruitment agency, the official said.

Based on the report of Senior Police Officer 4 Cenon Parungao, of MPD-Station 5, the suspect was arrested at 7:15 p.m. on Friday inside the recruitment agency.

The complainants said Gumbol allegedly promised them highpaying jobs in Italy if they could pay a processing fee to the recruitment agency.

Parungao said the fee ranges from P55,000 to P150,000 depending on what job the complainants want to have in Italy.

They claimed that the agency has collected a total of P525,467 from them, but the company has yet to fulfill its promise.

Their failure to leave for abroad despite paying the processing fee had prompted the four complainants to go to the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA) and found that recruitment agency is not accredited to send people abroad.

“It was already too late when they verified from the POEA that the agency is not authorized to recruit workers from abroad,” Parungao said.

Parungao said they are set to file four counts of large-scale estafa and illegal recruitment against Carmona and Gumbol.
