The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) is the Philippine government's agency tasked with protecting Philippine workers rights when they travel to work outside the Philippines. The POEA also promotes the development of overseas workers. Employers who seek to recruit and hire Philippine workers must obtain a POEA licence before recruiting Philippine workers.

The POEA has just issued a warning that a "Sandra M. Lim" has been representing herself as an Asst. Supervisor with the POEA. The POEA confirms that there is no POEA official or employee with that name.
