THE Philippine Consulate General in Milan cautioned Filipinos against dealing with unscrupulous individuals or agencies promising non-existent jobs in Italy.
In an advisory, the Consulate specifically warned the Filipino community in Northern Italy and their relatives in the Philippines against entering into transaction with individuals or agencies who continue to promise non existing jobs to Italy.
The Consulate said they were informed that Filipino job applicants were made to pay additional fees supposedly to secure working visa from the Italian Embassy in Manila.
However the Consulate said that contrary to the claims of recruiters, Italian authorities have said “there are no longer any jobs available for Filipinos in Italy under the decreto flussi program.”
The Consulate encouraged Filipinos who feel they have been victimized by illegal recruiters to contact the Consulate as soon as possible.
The Consulate may be contacted at +39 02 6682 5232 or email email@example.com.
