DPWH warns public against fraud

The public and stakeholders are warned against increasing fraudulent schemes by individuals posing as DPWH officials and employees to solicit money for projects and/or personal favor.

The DPWH received reports that a certain individual has been calling stakeholders using 0965-546-4667 to disguise and misrepresent Director Michael S. Villafranca of the Human Resource and Administrative Service.

Please be informed that any solicitation or request made thru this phone number is fraudulent and unauthorized.

Official transactions with the Department and its authorized DPWH personnel should be dealt with using office telephone number/s.

Furthermore, public officials and employees, including DPWH personnel, are prohibited by the law from soliciting any form of compensation or fees in the performance of their duty.

The public is encouraged to immediately report similar cases or any suspicious undertaking to the DPWH Stakeholders Relations Service at 304-3370 and DPWH Hotline (02) 165-02.
