MOH issues alert on possible recruitment scam promising jobs in Singapore healthcare
The Ministry of Health has issued an alert of a possible recruitment scam, promising jobs in Singapore's healthcare sector.
It urged those who have received e-mails with job offers, along with requests for upfront payment, to confirm the validity of the job offer with the institution involved.
The ministry issued this alert on its website today, after healthcare cluster, JurongHealth, posted a similar warning on its Facebook page on Monday.
JurongHealth said it has received queries regarding an "Embassy Visa Interview Preparation" in the Philippines by a Jurong medical centre consultancy firm.
JurongHealth said it has no links with this consultancy firm.
It added that it's not conducting any recruitment exercise in the Philippines and did not send any emails asking for payment.
JurongHealth has reported the matter to the authorities.
