The Department of Employment has revealed that nearly 200 Thai workers never gained overseas employments via illegal job agencies in the past 3 months.

DOE Director-General Sumet Mahosot said that a total of 190 people have fallen victims to dodgy job agencies. Many of them never made it out of Thailand while those who did could not enter the host country. Some were even left by themselves when they arrived.

According to him, the total amount of money they spent on the job agencies during the past three month was well worth over 9 million baht. Following the arrest of Thai women working at a massage parlor in Malaysia, he explained that they did not have work permits.

He urged those who want to work overseas to study their contract thoroughly. Most importantly, it must be verified by the Thailand Overseas Employment Agency or the Thai embassies in their respective countries of residence.
