We have received several reports that certain individuals representing themselves as officials and personnel of DICT have been soliciting donations from private companies. The same scheme was also reportedly used to impersonate officials from other government agencies.

In the aforementioned incidents, the individuals used the mobile number +639632779623, which is not associated with any DICT official or personnel as per official records.

Let it be known that these persons are neither affiliated nor authorized to represent the DICT. We urge the general public to be vigilant and report suspicious transactions and unscrupulous activities to information@dict.gov.ph.

Please be guided accordingly.
