Amid scams using fake Facebook pages of well-known overseas job agencies, job seekers should go directly to agency offices to observe and communicate, according to an official from the Myanmar Overseas Employment Agencies Federation (MOEAF).
After finding the list of officially licensed agencies on Safe Migration’s website, jobseekers should go directly to the agency’s local office as indicated by the address rather than contacting them online, he said.
“The most important thing is to go directly to the agency’s office. Safe Migration has published the list and names of licensed agencies. After checking the list, they should go directly to the offices, whether they are real or not. If the company exists, they should also verify phone numbers. Sometimes, the name of a licensed company found online is correct, but there are some fake sites. Agencies face this problem because the official ones provide their information. However, there are many cases where those of famous agencies are copied and faked in order to deceive young people. The best way is to check the list of agencies on Safe Migration and MOEAF and then physically go to the office as per the address,” he said.
According to the data released by Safe Migration on 9 June 2024, there are 565 licensed overseas employment agencies, most of which send workers to Thailand, Singapore and Japan. — MT/ZN
