According to the report, fraudsters are allegedly using these aliases to get a P6,000 unlawful medical bond/medical insurance. The sum in question is claimed to be part of the recruitment and hiring process for an unnamed post.

OPS issued a statement warning the public about the fraud and urging them to report it to Malacanang if they encounter it. The OPS wants to make everyone aware of this illegal solicitation scam and encourages people to report it to the Citizens’ Complaint Center at 8888.

The 8888 Citizen’s Complaint Hotline is one of two major hotlines established under President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration, the other being the 911 emergency rescue hotline. Executive Order No. 6, enacted by Duterte in October 2016, established a 24-hour national public service hotline.

The scammers reportedly utilized the letterheads of the Inter-agency Task Force (IATF) for Emerging Infectious Diseases and the Department of Labor and Employment, according to him (DOLE). Nograles is the IATF’s co-chair and spokesperson.
