The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) warned overseas job applicants against advertisements on social media offering assistance in the processing of employment documents, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

In an advisory Tuesday, Administrator Bernard Olalia said they received reports regarding individuals in Facebook groups and pages advertising assistance in the processing of OFW e-registration, pre-employment orientation seminar (PEOS), and information sheet.

“These enterprising individuals claim that for a fee, they would be able to assist in the creation of e-registration accounts or the issuance of PEOS certificates and OFW information sheets,” he added.


Olalia reminded the public that obtaining these accounts and documents is free.

“There is no charge for obtaining an e-registration account and an OFW Information Sheet. Moreover, the online pre-employment orientation seminar (PEOS) is a learning facility that must be undertaken by individuals who intend to work overseas, which aims to guide jobseekers to understand the realities of working abroad,” he said.

“The PEOS certificate is issued free of charge to all individuals who are able to finish the learning modules in the PEOS,” he added.

Olalia also warned the public about the risk of providing personal information to strangers, as these may be used in illegal activities.

He advised overseas job seekers to visit the POEA's official website, for information and assistance regarding e-registration, PEOS, and information sheet.

“The POEA also encourages overseas jobseekers to be more cautious and to immediately report individuals who engage in the above illegal activities to the Operations and Surveillance Division via email at or the POEA Anti Legal Recruitment Branch Facebook Page at,” Olalia added.
