A COMPLAINT was filed before the Department of Justice by the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) against a mastermind of an online job recruitment scam, a television report said.

Wilredo Almira Isaac Jr. was charged with 50 counts of money laundering corresponding to the number of transactions he made in masterminding the job scam with money obtained illegally.

The AMLC said Isaac pretended to be a foreign employee that posts advertisements for caregivers and nurses in jobs search websites.

His job advertisement showed there was no placement fee, no processing fee and that the applicants have to shoulder the medical and training fees ranging from P3,000 to P45,000 but no applicant was employed or given jobs as promised. (Sunnex)
