• Illegal recruitment victims seek NBI help


    Victims of alleged illegal recruitment asked the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on Thursday to help them find a New Zealand citizen who promised them jobs abroad. Six individuals filed charges of illegal recruitment against Phil Coopera and his girlfriend Maria Joy Valdriz, owners of Kiwi Assessment and Training Center in Angeles City. “They suddenly closed their office. That’s why we are seeking NBI’s help,” said Vivencio Castillo Jr. Aside from Castillo, others who joined him were Edwin Galang, Alexander Mendoza, Daniel de Guzman, Marlon Ebio, and Alberto Rivera, all from Pampanga. Castillo said some of the applicants are now in New Zealand but Galang started his application more than a year ago and spent about P10,000 but he has yet to receive word if his visa has been approved. The NBI directed the complainants to return on Monday to complete their affidavits.

    1. Illegal recruiters are the lowest of the low..They exploit poor and vulnerable people who’s only desire it to get well paid employment so that they can support their families. Utterly disgusting scumbags..they should be sent to prison for a minimum of five years. Surely the time has come for the government to introduce FOOLPROOF measures to put a stop to this RIP OFF.
