This advisory is issued to inform the public that scammers pretending to be a CDA Official/Employee resorted to misrepresentation for solicitation of favors.
Several reports from affected persons have been received regarding the scammer’s attempt to defraud them through phone calls and text messages. The modus includes the use of the name of the CDA Official in a ploy to purchase load cards, arrange an event, and secure a reservation for catering services.
The Authority would like to enjoin the public and the cooperative sector to exercise
vigilance in dealing with any individual or group of persons using such modus and
perform due diligence in the course of processing transactions.
The CDA adheres to the “No Gift Policy.” Section 7 (d) of Republic Act 6713 or the “Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees” proscribes solicitation of favors, to wit:
“Section 7. Prohibited Acts and Transactions. – In addition to acts and omissions of public officials and employees now prescribed in the Constitution and existing laws, the following shall constitute prohibited acts and transactions of any public official and employee and are hereby declared to be unlawful:
(d) Solicitation or acceptance of gifts. – Public officials and employees shall not solicit or accept, directly or indirectly, any gift, gratuity, favor, entertainment, loan or anything of monetary value from any person in the course of their official duties or in connection with any operation being regulated by, or any transaction which may be affected by the functions of their office.”
The Authority does not and will not solicit funds/money. Any violation in whatever form shall be dealt with accordingly.
You may contact/email us at (02) 8725-3764/[email protected] or report to other law enforcement agencies any suspicious activity, unscrupulous individuals, or any related incident.
For your information and guidance.
