Recently, a Facebook user named Cid Marion Udaund-Estrada shared his terrible experience dealing with an unidentified employment agency.
According to Cid, a certain man blocked him after arriving at the Five Star Station in Cubao. This man offered a job opportunity to him.
After talking to the said man, the job applicant was convinced of his promises and went to their office for filling up an application form and doing a job interview.
However, the problem started when after the interview, one of the staff of the company charged him with P300. The person guaranteed that the money is refundable if he would return to accept the job offer.
Cid refused to pay the amount. However, the personnel is still pushy and won’t let him go out of the establishment without getting any money. He also explained that he doesn’t have any money left to pay the amount since what he has is enough to pay for his transportation.
Before he left, he was asked to pay P10 for the paper he used.
