The Department of Public Works and Highways issues this warning to the general public upon learning that an unscrupulous individual is posing as DPWH Undersecretary Ardeliza R. Medenilla via call from mobile number 09565982374 soliciting money from a certain supplier of goods.

Undersecretary Medenilla adheres to the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees (Republic Act 6713) which prohibits officials and employees from soliciting money and will not resort to any unauthorized government transactions.

Please be warned of the resourcefulness of some people using the exact name/s of DPWH official/s for illegal undertakings such as asking contributions or personal favors and in turn, may convince the ones receiving the call that the communication is legitimate.

The general public are encouraged to report any similar form of incidence from person or group and verify the authenticity of messages with the DPWH Stakeholders Relations Service by calling Hotline 165-02 or Telephone Number 5304-3370.
