PIA Press Release

Research on your relationships, CFO advises Pinoys

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya (5 October) -- Filipinos seeking for marriages abroad should inform the office of the Commission on Filipino Overseas (CFO) on their intention first for guidance and counseling for a better and peaceful life.

Dominic Jan Ramos, CFO information officer said most Filipinos’ lack of guidance and counseling on the prospects for a better life and relationships abroad are key factors where they easily falls as victims of human trafficking and violence.

CFO along with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) recently conducted community education program in the towns of Bayombong and Solano last week in an effort to strengthen their network against illegal recruitment in the country.

“Most of our fellow Filipinos are easily swayed by their relationships with fellow Filipinos abroad or foreign nationals where they would soon regret their decision,” Ramos said during an interview here.

Ramos said there is a need for Filipinos to research on the backgrounds of their prospective wives of husbands abroad before deciding to leave the country.

He said that with the present information technology, Filipinos are directly influenced with their personal communication with their prospects abroad.

“We are discouraging this because in most cases and experience, these practices would lead to problems later since they have a limited information regarding their “matches” or prospects abroad,” Ramos said.

He said Filipinos should first seek an advise from the CFO office so that they will be educated and informed on the backgrounds of their prospective matches and jobs abroad.

In this way, Ramos said, Filipinos will not fall prey on human trafficking syndicates and violence in other countries. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
