According to the article, the alleged bogus account guarantees local government entities that the agency will expedite their dealings with them. Additionally, the fraudulent account claims to offer financial assistance that would be paid for with the virtual money GCash.

Additionally, they stated that the con artist would then request their personal pin in order to enter their account. DBM highlights that the aforementioned social media account is merely fooling the public and hunting for victims.

“This is to warn the public against transacting with the Facebook account Aminah F. Pangdanman. The said account entices the public with a promise of financial assistance to be paid through [virtual wallet] GCash, then asks for the personal pin (personal identification number) to be able to access the public’s account,” said the DBM.

The agency made it clear that they do not employ any individuals or organizations that solicit donations from public servants, purportedly in return for the prompt release of the LGU budget or other cash that the organization plans to exploit.
