Filipino workers who are presently employed overseas should be more careful about accepting offers of employment in another country.
The POEA has received reports of Filipino household service workers (HSWs) in Hong Kong, Singapore and Cyprus who were lured into transferring to another country like Dubai, Mongolia, Turkey and Russia and who later found out the conditions of employment are not what one had in mind; or worse, the offered job is non-existent.
