LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – The Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) has warned Filipino women to be extra careful in accepting marriage proposals from foreigners to avoid becoming victims of human trafficking.

Cherry Joy Veniles, senior emigrant services officer of the CFO’s Migrant Integration and Education Office, said the same word of caution holds true for Filipinos who applied for overseas work as complaints for breach of job contracts had increased over the years.

Veniles said based on cases that the CFO had investigated, six out of 10 marriages between Filipinos and foreigners “often turned out very bad with the Filipina wife later turning out to be missing or (being) sold as a commodity.”

Contract violations

In the case of overseas workers, Veniles said violations of the terms of employment contract remained the main concern.

Veniles spoke at the Benguet State University here on Tuesday and urged relatives of overseas workers and those married abroad to coordinate with the CFO concerning problems relayed to them by their relatives who are working abroad as OFWs.

She said the CFO chose to visit Benguet since most immigrants from the Cordillera who went abroad came from Benguet and Mt. Province.

The CFO has identified the Cordillera as the fifth among the top 10 provinces in the country where the most number of OFWs and immigrants originated.


Benguet, like Davao, was also identified as the province where most “Nikkeijins” who go to work in Japan come from. “Nikkeijins” are Filipino descendants of Japanese nationals.

Veniles said not all overseas Filipinos are considered OFWs, which meant their problems are not all job related, to be handled by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration.

There are Filipino immigrants who hold permanent resident visas whose problems could be worse than the ordinary OFWs, she said.

CFO records showed that 8.72 million Filipinos were abroad as of 2007. Of this number, 3.69 million held permanent resident visas, 4.13 million were OFWs while less than a million were considered irregulars, also known as TNTs (Tago nang Tago or undocumented Filipinos hiding from immigration authorities).

Holders of permanent visas often find themselves helpless since their stay in a foreign land is not guaranteed by job contracts but by their marriage to foreigners, Veniles said.

12 convictions

The prosecution, however, of human traffickers still leaves much to be desired, said Eumardo Tolosa, a member of CFO’s Task Force on Human Trafficking.

He said since the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act (Republic Act No. 9208) was enacted in 2003, only 12 people have so far been convicted

That's simply awfull. I always advise Filipina women who surf the internet to be cautious when looking for a soulmate.

I have seen cases whenFilipina women run away from fianci or husbands and end up having permanant legal stay ad then I have watched them legally petition for a Filipino man to court her and marry here in America also.

Filipina women can also abuse the system as well just use the marraige visa as a stepping stone to get overseas then once overseas she may have relatives or freinds waiting her next move.

I remember that awfull killing in Seattle of many women who were mailbrides.

It has never leave my mind, I think that is I am so caring to women here who want mates from abroad.

Just simply be very carefull when choosing someone.

some pinay have an assumption that marrying any caucasian-looking man would solve poverty.

"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
