MANILA – The Quezon City government warned its residents not to believe a fake social media post on alleged PHP10,000 financial assistance for each household with a member who is a holder of the QCitizen identification card.
The Facebook post by a certain Rodel Romanca over the weekend encouraged QC residents to inquire or apply online through the Quezon City e-service.
He added that the application should be sent by October 29 and that successful applicants will receive the cash assistance within one month once all required documents are validated.
“May 10k daw po na pinamimigay si Mayor JB na cash assistance kada one household member lang (There is a PHP10,000 being given by Mayor Joy Belmonte as cash assistance for each household),” the post read.
The QC government disowned the post, which has been taken down.
“Fake news alert! Mag-ingat sa kumakalat na post tungkol sa pinamimigay na pera gamit ang QCitizen ID o sa pamamagitan ng QC E-services portal. Hindi po ito totoo (Be cautious of the post that says QCitizens are being given money through the QC E-services portal. This is not true),” the QC government posted on Facebook Sunday with an accompanying screenshot of the fake information.
The city government advised its residents to get information from the city’s official social media accounts or from the website http://www.quezoncity.gov.ph.
The QCitizen Card provides the city a complete and accurate database of its residents and determines how services can be allocated.
On the other hand, the QC E-Services is an online platform for all city government services for residents and business owners. (PNA)
