US Economy Down, 401k now worth 1k, going to lose you job? Get your face tattoo'ed &

Come to Indonesia for a job with the Indo govt.

Jobseekers duped into getting face tattoos

* Jobseekers tattooed to secure work
* Dragons tattooed across their faces
* Permanent ink but no permanent jobs

TWO Indonesian jobseekers have been tricked into getting their faces tattooed by a bogus official offering government jobs.

Village chief Sawiyono - who was helping the men find jobs in Jakarta - claimed he had received a text message from a government official offering them work as intelligence officers but saying they would have to be inked first with a dragon tattoo, Antara state news agency said.

Sawiyono realised he had been tricked after checking with the subdistrict chief of the Bojonegoro district of East Java who told him there was no such requirement.

But by then it was too late and the men had already been tattooed, the report said.

"I am fully responsible for the mistake and I will do my best to help the men remove their tattoos,'' Sawiyono said.

The men have complained to police and were seeking treatment at a local hospital.
