Taguig Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano warns vs scammers, says there’s no joining fee for his programs
Taguig Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano has warned the public against falling prey to scammers who claim to be his staff members just to get money from them.
Cayetano said his office does not ask people to pay a fee in order to be included in his Sampung Libong Pag-asa and Sari-saring Pag-asa programs.
In the first place, these programs been temporarily suspended in compliance with the rules of the Commission on Elections for the campaign, he said.
But he has learned about a modus on social media that uses the names of his programs to get money from people.
“Napag-alaman namin na may mga taong gumagamit ng pangalan ng aming mga programa para manloko at manghingi ng pera gamit ang ibang social media pages,” he said.
His office would not ask people to pay to receive financial assistance, he said.
He also said he has only one official Facebook page.
“Tandaan: hindi po kami kailanman hihingi ng anumang halaga ng pera kapalit ng inyong pagsali sa ating programa. Wala rin po kaming ibang Facebook page o group maliban sa official page na ito (@alanpetercayetano),” he said.
