Ghana job? Check first

MANILA, Philippines – The Consulate of Ghana in the Philippines has warned Filipino job-seekers against bogus companies offering non-existent work in the African country.

In a statement, Ghana’s honorary consul Ramon Z. Abad said that because of its strong economy, Ghana is fast becoming a center of migration in Africa.

As a result, offers of employment in the country abound, especially through the Internet, that are more often than not scams, he said.

“These companies, which mostly hire directly by e-mail, offer salaries that are extremely beyond the normal rates, along with benefits that are too good to be true,” Abad said.

He said that when applicants sign up, they were asked to shell out money for the processing of visas, travel, work and residence permits, and other documents.

Some even charge a “diplomatic services fee” for a Ghanian official to personally come to the Philippines to stamp their visa and deliver their travel documents, he said.

Abad said the only legitimate issuer of visas for Ghana was its consulate in the Philippines.

He said that those who have been offered jobs in Ghana should call the Ghana consulate at 3874932 or e-mail rzabad@ghanaphil.com to verify if the companies recruiting them are legitimate.
