After authorities conducted a raid on a Makati City call centre, 73 people from across the globe have been detained, reports The Philippines Tribune.
According to the story, the raid was a consequence of an anonymous tip-off regarding workers without permits operating in the call center as agents for Super 7 Ventures.
BI Intel. Division Chief, Atty. Jose Carlitos Licas, has indeed confirmed that foreigners without permits were employed by an illegal gambling organization, under the guise of a call center, as online gambling agents.
The raid was undertaken as a component of the authority’s “Magsumbong” programme, aiming to uncover permitless foreigners who are living and working illegally in the Philippines, concludes Licas.
