MCIL warns against scammers


The Ministry of Commerce Industry and Labour has revived its warning of individuals who are posing as MCIL officials recruiting seasonal workers overseas. 

In a statement released on their official Facebook page, the relevant Ministry says given the notable increase in the number of cases referred to MCIL of individuals who are posing as MCIL officials and/or Approved Employers representatives taking advantage of unsuspecting individuals eager to find work on seasonal employment schemes, MCIL wishes to warn the general public to take heed that all matters pertaining to recruitment and selection of candidates for seasonal employment schemes in Australia &  New Zealand are conducted at MCIL, Level 4 ACC Building. 

“The registration for seasonal work and all services provided by the Labour and Employment Export Program division (LEEP) of MCIL is FREE OF CHARGE. 

“No money or fees are to be paid and if they know anyone they suspect is a victim of such scams, note the names of the individuals they are dealing with, take photos (if you can) and contact the LEEP Division.”

The warning comes days after Lynn Nauer accused of conning members of the public, claiming she’s a recruiter for seasonal work overseas was arrested and charged by the police. 

She is now in custody facing charges of obtaining by deception.
