Authorities Charged 11 “Scam Call Center” Employees in Pampanga

Police authorities files a complaint against eleven (11) “scam call center” employees who were recently raided in Pampanga.

Eleven employees of the seized enterprise in Mabalacat, Pampanga, as well as over 1,000 victims of human trafficking, were rescued. The Department of Justice (DOJ) held an inquest on the accused, who were reportedly victims’ managers or supervisors.

Aside from human trafficking, they will face serious illegal detention charges after the rescued claimed being stopped from exiting the building, according to DOJ Deputy City Prosecutor Atty. Caete, Darwin. It will also be studied whether the victims have the necessary documents when they travel to the Philippines to work.

 “We also are checking how they got in the country, considering that they have no work visa, how they were recruited. The fact that they were even present to work without without any kind of permit or visa, human trafficking talaga’yon,” Cañete insisted.

Personnel from the Philippine National Police Anti-Cybercrime Group (PNP-ACG), PNP Special Action Force, and PNP Intelligence Group raided a building in Mabalacat City’s Clark Sun Valley Hub, according to the report. During the rescue effort, 1,065 people were saved.

According to the report, the rescued victims include 1 Hong Kong national, 143 Indonesians, 307 Chinese, 389 Vietnamese, 40 Nepalese, 5 Thai, 2 Taiwanese, 7 Burmese, and 171 Filipinos. According to Sabino, they are hired based only on their ability to communicate in English and type.

 “So basically, ‘yun lang then they will undergo 5-6 days training kung saan tinuturuan sila ng communication skills… The stories they have… they are not allowed to go out of their dormitories, they are not allowed to talk, even to smoke for 10 minutes and they’re working 18 hours a day,” he said.

“Ang promise nila is 8,000 won na pagkinonvert mo dito is 60 to 70 pesos. You start with 100 points but you’ll end up [na] walang nakakakuha ng 100 points dahil ang dami nilang violation,” Sabino revealed.

It is their job to discover potential “customers” to swindle online. The majority of them appear to be courting and attempting to dupe the victims into carrying out the scam.

When they get the heart, they have an intimate chat, and when they fall in love, they ask for an investment, as if they desire a house, a car, or an investment jointly.

They ghost it when they are too big or no longer ready to invest, Sabino noted. The confiscated computer units will be forensically examined to ascertain the scope of the operation.
