DICT Warns Public Over Pretending Fake Officials Collecting Donations
The Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT) has warned the public against fake officials of their agency soliciting donations.
The DICT made the notification after receiving information that certain people are impersonating agency officials and workers in order to seek donations from the public. “The same scheme was also reportedly used to impersonate officials from other government agencies,” the DICT said.
According to their official records, the number +639632779623 was purportedly used in their scam without any interaction with any DICT official or employee. The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) also asked the public to remain watchful and report any suspicious activity to [email protected].
“Let it be known that these persons are neither affiliated nor authorized to represent the DICT,” they said.
Meanwhile, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) has warned the public against the fake registration sites of the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) for national ID. Because certain bogus sites and Facebook pages purportedly appear to be representatives of PhilSys, the PSA has issued a public service announcement warning the public about the growth of bogus PhilSys registration sites.
Due to fraudulent sign-up practices and misconceptions about PhilSys registration, the following are now being investigated. Only authorities from the PhilSys website, philsys.gov.ph, and the Facebook page PSAPhilSysOfficial provide accurate information for the PhilSys registration procedure and ID issuance, according to PSA.
