A story about an unscrupulous Filipino
recruiter who is looking for teachers
for immediate employment in Thailand has stirred up Filipino expatriates in
Thailand, causing many to rage and
others to be ashamed.

The TEFL Watch, an international forum
of teachers, posted a story on its
website on September 9, detailing how a
certain Winston Pedro Bayron promised
recruits an easy way to teach in
Thailand, and collected excessive
training and placement fees from
recruits mostly from Bohol in Central
Visayas.

According to the victims, Bayron
collected P3, 500 ($70) for a seminar
they willingly attended because of
assurance of immediate hiring with
30,000 Thai Baht (P43, 800) monthly
salary, the report said.

Recruit s must also pay an additional
P45, 000 (nearly $1,000) recruitment
fee, which is supposed to cover
transportation to Bangkok, and board and
lodging for one month, the report added.

Some of recruits even claimed Bayron
herded them in a small apartment and fed
them one or two meals a day. They also
said the recruiter threatened to deport
them if they complained because they
were illegal aliens.

“After paying recruitment fees, some
recruits were reportedly taken to
isolated parts of Thailand to fend for
themselves," according to the article.

Siam pinoy.com, an online forum of
Filipino expatriates in Thailand, picked
up the TEFL story and posted it on
September 14 for comments.

A number of Filipino expatriates
registered their reactions – all against
Bayron. One expressed shame as the story
could be another blow to the reputation
of the Filipino community in Thailand.
Another one shared experiences of those
who became victims of illegal
recruitment schemes by the likes of
Bayron in northern Luzon.

A teacher who used Bol-anon (person from
Bohol) as alias claimed he is familiar
with the name Winston Pedro Bayron and
his illegal recruitment scheme.

“Bayron’s posters in our province
[Bohol] which promised 40, 000 Bath
(P57, 200) monthly salary encouraged me
to work in Thailand, although I was not
one of his victims," the Bol-anon said.

The posters also announced that
graduates of any college course could
easily get a job here in Thailand with
Bayron’s assistance.

He said that at the opening of School
Year 2006 - 2007, his sister sent him an
SMS (short messaging system) telling him
that Bayron has recruited two of their
neighbors who are teachers.

“The teachers were preparing their
travel documents and raising P45, 000
for their placement fees when I told my
sister to inform our neighbors of the
cunning schemes of Bayron," he said.

“Becaus e of that information, my two
neighbors were saved from his hands," he
added.

“I have already reported Bayron’s
activities to a local newspaper and the
Bohol Chronicle had published a write-up
on his modus operandi, but I don't know
why he is still on his business," he said.

Bol-ano n said that he has gotten
information that Bayron’s ads are still
all around Tagbilaran City.

“A background check shows that Bayron’s
wife is a sister of a congressman of one
of the districts in Bohol," he said.

In an email sent by Siampinoy to
GMANews.TV, Bayron denied TEFL’s
allegation s saying, “I always make clear
to applicants that we are not a
placement and recruitment agency, and
that we are a training center, which
prepares teachers to work in Thailand.’"

He also denied he collects money in
exhange for employment in Thailand. -

Naks, wala oroy na si Bayron hubag hubagi...

Wala diay papel nga pinirmahan nang mga maestra nga nibayad sila, kay maka-deny paman si Bayron?
