Abal warns of con seasonal worker agents
FOREIGN Affairs, Trade and Immigration Minister Sam Abal has warned that people claiming to be seasonal worker scheme agents can be prosecuted for misleading innocent people and illegally collecting fees from them.
These people claim that they have been recognised by PNG and Australian governments to be agents. That is false and misleading, Mr Abal issued.
It was understood these con artists, despite warnings, misled gullible people to earn some quick money.
Such wanton disregard could tarnish the schemes long term benefits.
The fact of the matter is that PNG and Australia have yet to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and the facilitative arrangements setting out the details of the scheme, he said in a statement.
The MoU and Facilitative Arrangements would pave way for PNG nationals to travel down south to be employed as seasonal workers.
The PNG Seasonal Workers Taskforce (PNGSWT), tasked by the Foreign Affairs and Trade Department was the only authorised people to deal with the matter.
In May this year, the National Executive Council endorsed the PNGSWT to deal with the seasonal worker scheme.
Mr Abal said the criteria agreed by both governments for the selection and sending arrangements were intensive and could not be done by agents and organisations.
This is a government to government arrangement therefore, the processes are going to be handled by the Government.
He said those false agents intending to send workers to Australia could face the law for people smuggling and face very heavy penalties.

The PNGscape gestapo moderator gang continues to delete postings on this board, the most recent was the one on proxies in Pacific IT . They're comfortable knowing where you dudes are posting from by tracking your IP address, because they know full well that most scapers are too dumb to post productive postings that bring truely positive change to PNG. When you begin suggesting things against their wantoks they delete and try to find out where you are.
Many scapers have opted to use proxies to protect their locations or IP addresses but these are people with the knowhow. For the rest to surf safely here you have options:
1. Use Elite or High Anonymity proxies: google and download Elite or High Anonymity Proxies. Most require payment however they usually allow a 7- 30 day period of trial use which is just as good. Their only problem would be that they slow down info transfer speeds. A couple worth trying are:
Good for home PCs
2. Download Tor program and install it on your computer. This is a program developed by ordinary people such as you to surf without authorities censorships such as the Chinese government or the pngscape gestapo moderator teams swoops and controls. For Tor to work well, it is preferrable to have the Mozilla fire fox browser installed too. Tor can be downloaded from:
Good for home computers.
The Problem: Because inputing information into Tor is like entering a tunnel, information at the input node and output nodes can easily be identified. Hence many use encryption such as SSL..
3. And the best and easiest. Surf pngscape through a cloaking site, which acts as an anonymous proxy. There are many cloaking sites avalable online. Take ninjacloak.com for instance., Here scroll to the bottom of the page where there is space for the pngwebscape.net address to be entered. As long as you surf within the ninjacloak window you will be safe. It is also the easiest,
Good for internet cafes
My advise is copy this info onto a document file and save it before the gestapo moderators delete this posting.
Happy surfing guys
