Overseas Filipino workers warned against using fake documents

March 05, 2019

THE Philippine Overseas Employment Administration warned balik-manggagawa or Filipino workers returning to their job site on the use of forged documents when applying for exit clearance or overseas employment certificate (OEC).

This after the Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Kuala Lumpur has reported that a certain Gina Leyson Erana has been supplying fake employment contract, passport, visa, and other related documents to Filipinos working illegally in Malaysia who want to secure an OEC in the Philippines.

POLO Malaysia has recorded a case of an undocumented worker who left the Philippines for Malaysia using forged documents provided by Erana.

Erana used to have a Facebook account in the name of “Juvica A. Pudun” where she advertised supposed job vacancies and offered “documentation services” to Filipinos, especially household service workers working illegally in Malaysia.

She was arrested by Malaysian authorities for being an illegal immigrant and was deported to the Philippines. However, Erana is suspected to have returned to Malaysia and is still conducting her illegal activities through another Facebook account.
