Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in Kuala Lumpur reported that a certain Gina Leyson Erana has been providing fake employment contracts, passports, visa, and other related documents to Filipinos working illegally in Malaysia who want to secure an OEC in the Philippines.
The POEA cautioned Filipino workers returning to their overseas jobs or “balik-manggagawa” for use of forged documents when applying for exit clearance or overseas employment certificate (OEC).
POEA stated that the POLO Malaysia branch has verified a case of an worker who left the Philippines for Malaysia off the books using forged documents provided by Erana.
Erana used social media as platform such as Facebook with the identity, “Juvica A. Pudun” ther she advertised made-up job vacancies and presented “documentation services” to unwary Filipinos particularly those who serve in the household working illegally in Malaysia.
Erana was reported to have been arrested by Malaysian authorities for being an illegal immigrant and was deported back to the Philippines.
Later, Erana is supposed to returned back to Malaysia and is on-going in conducting her illegal actions through a different Facebook profile.
POEA sternly warned returning Filipino workers from engaging the services of persons procuring such fake documents. Filipino workers who will submit falsified information or documents will face penalties such as suspension or permanent disqualification from partaking in the overseas employment program.
