DOH-Calabarzon Regional Director Eduardo C. Janairo today warned the public on fraudulent solicitations perpetrated by some individuals or groups using his name and posing as employees of the regional office to extort money for their personal profit.
“We have received numerous reports from suppliers, contractors and other concerned offices that there are individuals claiming to be employees of the region and using my name soliciting funds to finance activities and events for my upcoming retirement and for sponsoring programs/projects of the regional office,” Janairo said.
“I NEVER ORDERED ANY SOLICITATION OR WHATSOEVER NOR WILL I ALLOW SUCH IMPRUDENT ACT OF IMPROPRIETY for any individual or entity, within and outside the office on my behalf,” he added.
“My office continuous to received reports of this scam being perpetrated by some individuals. Hindi pa rin po sila tumitigil at patuloy pa rin sa kanilang kabulastugan. Sa sinumang makaengkuwentro ng ganitong gawain ay huwag po kayong maniniwala, huwag magtitiwala at importante sa lahat huwag na huwag po kayong magbibigay ng kahit anumang pera o tulong. Ipagbigay alam agad sa aming tanggapan,” warned Janairo.
Janairo added that the culprits are soliciting and using the operative word “donation” on his behalf.
In October 5, 2020, the regional office issued CHD Advisory No. 2020-43 for the same reason.
“We have coordinated with the Philippine National Police and the National Bureau of Investigation to identify the personalities behind this scam and we will surely make them liable,” he accentuated.
The public is advised to report any encounter of this kind to Hotline No. 8-249-2000 loc. 4400 or email at email@example.com or send message through Facebook page – Department of Health Regional Office IV-A Calabarzon. (ia)
