Kahit tapos na ang Pasko: DPWH warns vs new solicitation scam
The holidays may be over, but not solicitation scams dropping the names of the Department of Public Works and Highways’ officials.
On the first working day of 2017, the DPWH warned the public against one Ricardo Santos, who claims to be acting on behalf of DPWH assistant secretary Gilberto Reyes.
It said Santos would call DPWH regional and district engineering offices to solicit funds and favors in Reyes’ behalf.
The DPWH asked those contacted by Santos not to entertain these “unscrupulous individuals” and instead advise the office of the assistant secretary for technical services.
It also advised them to report such individuals to the police.
