We warn the public and the DPWH public servants alike of unscrupulous individuals posing as members of the newly created DPWH Task Force Against Graft and Corruption organized by Secretary Mark A. Villar under Department Order No. 101 dated October 17, 2020.
Reports have reached this Office that a certain “Alex” using mobile number 0963 254-4485 has been calling District Engineering Offices of the Department claiming to be part of said task force and soliciting information for audit and investigation purposes.
Let it be known that the anti-graft task force headed by DPWH Assistant Secretary Mel John I. Verzosa has no such member nor has it authorized any person with such name to transact on its behalf.
We urge the public and government workers to be wary and ascertain the authority and credibility of the person(s) they are transacting with to avoid furthering the deceitful schemes of fraudulent individuals.
For confirmation of official members of the task force and for reporting of similar incidence or any suspicious transaction, the public is advised to coordinate with the Office of Asec. Versoza thru +632-5304-3301.
(Sgd.) ATTY. MEL JOHN I. VERZOSA
