DOTr Advisory on Individuals Using the Name of Sec. Tugade to Solicit Money

Wazzup Pilipinas!

This is to warn the public against individuals claiming to be Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur Tugade, and soliciting money allegedly for the benefit of residents affected by the Mayon volcano eruption.

An unidentified man purporting to be Sec. Tugade called up the Area 8 office of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) in Tacloban this morning, and inquired about airport projects in the region. The caller also asked for the names of project contractors, and said he will solicit PhP 1-Million from them allegedly to aid affected residents in Albay. 

An investigation is currently ongoing.

Please be warned that the DOTr and its attached agencies and offices has not authorized any person or group to solicit money from the public to fund calamity-stricken areas, its projects, and campaigns.

Further, please be informed that Secretary Tugade does not approve solicitation of this nature in any way, form, opportunity and manner, as the same is considered illegal and unlawful.

The DOTr also condemns such fraudulent acts, and vows to coordinate with proper authorities to swiftly investigate and determine those who are responsible behind this scam.

The DOTr likewise requests the public to be more vigilant and discerning, and to report similar cases, or any other suspicious undertaking using the name of the Secretary, or any other official of this Department.

Thank you.
