The Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) shut down another consultancy firm promising jobs in Poland and charging exorbitant fees for the supposed processing of the applicants’ employment documents, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

The DMW’s Migrant Workers Protection Bureau (MWPB), with the help of the Pasay City police, padlocked the office of 11 Sea’s Immigration Services at Unit 82, 3rd Floor, Welcome Plaza Mall, Taft Avenue in Pasay City.

The 11 Sea’s Immigration Services is neither licensed by the DMW to recruit and place Filipino workers overseas nor does it have any approved job orders.

“I am reiterating this warning to our Kababayans, especially those who want to work overseas. Please, do not deal with consultancy firms that offer to get you jobs abroad. Always check the DMW website (www.dmw.gov.ph) for the list of licensed agencies and approved job orders,” DMW Officer-in-Charge Hans Leo J. Cacdac warned the public.

The MWPB disclosed that the firm promises jobs as trailer truck driver and warehouse worker to Poland with at least Php 280,000 "all-in payment" for the processing of the workers’ employment documents.

If the applicant cannot afford the one-time payment, he or she is charged with an initial payment of Php 50,000 and will be referred to their counterpart lending institution to apply for a loan for the payment of the remaining balance.

Allegedly, 11 Sea's Immigration Services also offers jobs to Canada with a processing fee of almost half a million pesos to prospective applicants who are also referred to their accredited clinic for medical examination.

The 11 Sea’s Immigration Services also uses social media, particularly Facebook, in advertising their job offerings to Poland to entice Filipino overseas job applicants.

The closure of 11 Sea’s Immigration Services will result in the inclusion of the firm and its staff in the DMW “List of Persons and Establishments with Derogatory Record” to prevent them from participating in the government’s overseas recruitment program.

They will also face charges of illegal recruitment.

The DMW encourages the victims of 11 Sea's Immigration Services to contact the MWPB through their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/dmwairtip, email at [email protected] or through their hotline number 63 2 8721-0619 for legal assistance in filing cases against the firm.
