PINOY OFWs Beware of New E-Mail Scam

an email scam has been recently reported targeting the PINOY Overseas Contract Workers (OFWs). 

the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) advised everyone to ignore emails telling them they have qualified and may apply as a nurse or caregiver at the Canadian Virtual Hospice in Winnipeg, Canada.  

the said email further added that applying for the job does not have hidden charges and that the employer will shoulder the airfare, work permit fee, and working visa (sounds interesting huh?). now the catch... the candidate is told to pay at a designated Western Union and/or LBC account, for the coaching and medical exam fees and to reserve a slot at the embassy for the coaching seminar. 

its unnerving how some take advantage of people who are just trying to earn a better and honest living.  please share this, be aware.

    I believe, this person has connections in some western union agents - because he can still claim the money even I just gave the "tracking number only" and nakapangalan p un sa friend ko…
    Ang style kasi nito, para ma-check nya daw if I have enough cash to pay the item, para ma-ideliver nya na ung item sa akin for testing. Kapag ok na, then pede ko nang ipadala sa Name nya ung cash….(sounds good right?..)
    Misis nya ung tumawag pa sa skin, tpos..kunwari nasa hospital sila kasi…for emergency dw kya mjo mura ung item…

the facebook breakup letter

dear facebook,

today marks our 10th year together, i must say it has been a sweet journey. unfortunately, time has come for me to walk away.

i had high hopes for us when we started, especially at the time when my heart still beat for… what was her name again? ahh friendster (may she rest in peace). but you were all smile and poised, a neatly uniformed college girl full of hopes and overflowing with excitement. you had me at one poke!

through you i bravely opened up my thoughts to the world. i was able to connect with old and new friends. you bridged time, the longitudes and the latitudes. i got found and new relatives were discovered. once a year you even make me famous sending out birthday reminders. with you, i was a kid in a playground, swiping up or down till the wee hours, unconditionally tagging anyone and gleefully enjoying your games.

know that i am glad to have witnessed you grow - your fun emojis, crazy virals, and live videos i will sorely miss. oh i always thought it’s cool…

I've been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn't happen again. The good news is that the most important actions to prevent this from happening again today we have already taken years ago. But we also made mistakes, there's more to do, and we need to step up and do it," mark posted.
