really... is there a reason people cannot write properly? do they not realise how difficult it is to read text-talk?
if you need such an "agency" you should not try to work overseas. if you are qualified and experienced you will not have problems getting a visa through the legal channels.
it is a SCAM to relieve you of your hard-earned money.
if you are unqualified and inexperienced, you will NOT be granted a work visa in hk. there are no "back doors".
if you are foolish enough to fall for such a scam after being warned, i have no sympathy for you. however, i do have sympathy for the unworldly-folks out there that don't know any better, as per moving07's post.
I think the passport problem occurred some years ago when it was switched to the machine readable ones, but now it's back to normal.
The vary thing was a typo,sorry i meant very but i always miss spell. the more i hear about fixers the more it sounds like that's what's going on with her friend. maybe her friend is in on the scam? we will never know because my wife has distanced herself from the friend after she kept asking about the contract but not giving any details about the employer. my wife has booked her flight home already and has transferred all her money into her philippines bank account except for living expenses so she can't be cheated out of all her earnings before she returns home.
Again, could you please stop writing in text speak.

About the government transactions, though, I'm saddened by those who speak lowly of their countrymen, and thus create the impression that the country is filled with scammers. Admittedly, there is a fraction of wrong-doers especially in the government but still there are those who are working hard to stop it. I believe it is unfair to view the society to be represented by these corrupt officials (like the nearly impeached shameless Chief INJustice) because there is still a great majority who are working honestly.
I know someone who runs a few bars around town and most of her staff are from the Philippines.
She manages to get visas for bar staff and musicians.
