Illegal Recruiter Faces Charges in Manila

Sunday, July 5, 2009

Florida Brown, of DSB International Travel Consultant Management Services, is facing charges of large-scale illegal recruitment and seven counts of estafa (fraud) in the Manila Regional Trial Court.

The charges stemmed from a complaint filed by Ariel Bautista, Amadeo Pama, Howard Hernandez, Rosalie Cortas, June Matibag, Rose Marie Ursua, and Arnel Salvador.

The complainants alleged that sometime between July and August 2007, Brown enticed them with jobs in New Zealand as fruit pickers.

The suspect demanded P125,000 from each of them as processing and placement fees, the complainants said, adding that the suspect received a total of P320,000 from them.[Source]

To avoid being victimized by illegal recruiters, always check with POEA if the recruiter is registered and with good standing.

Fruit picking in New Zealand is more of a seasonal job and not necessarily a high demand occupations.
