Scam Alert: Portugal Job Offers Scam, Warning from DFA

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

The Philippine Embassy in Lisbon recently issued a warning regarding the online scams offering employment in Portugal.

The Embassy has recently noted an upsurge in the number of Filipinos who have been victimized or have received emails from alleged companies or law firms in Portugal who offer jobs and/or promise to process entry/visa permits for employment through payment of exorbitant fees by money transfer. 

In some cases, unscrupulous individuals have misrepresented real and even reputable companies in Portugal by using information on their websites but replacing their contact information. These individuals require payment of fees for “Entry-Clearance Certificates,” “International /Overseas Employment Certificates-(I/OEC)” and “Affidavits of Guarantee Fund,” all of which are not required by Portuguese authorities. The IOEC that these individuals are asking payment for, is not the OEC legitimately issued by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
