The Thai government has issued a warning to jobseekers looking for employment in Japan about fake recruiters and job scams.
Thailand National News Bureau has reported Thai nationals living in Japan raised the alarm after friends and relatives back home were approached by dodgy recruiters and promised construction work in Fukushima, which was damaged by earthquakes and a tsunami in 2011.
The jobseekers were allegedly offered work to help rebuild the city, with the scammers claiming they would not have to go through government employment agencies.
Instead, they were to be charged a fee of [Thai baht] THB400k (£7.6k).
