MANILA, Philippines — A woman accused of being an illegal recruiter was arrested in a joint operation of the Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) and the Mandaluyong City Police.

According to DMW on Friday, Quezon City resident Marjorie Almarez, 33, was involved in scamming people seeking jobs overseas.

During the entrapment operation, Almarez accepted the money from a complainant to whom she promised a job as a fruit picker in Japan with a P77,000 monthly salary.

The DMW added that when the victim saw Almarez’s transaction, they notified the DMW, which confirmed that she was not licensed by the agency to provide overseas jobs, leading to the entrapment operation.

Currently, Almarez is detained in the Mandaluyong Police Station and will face charges of illegal recruitment and estafa.
