Sara Duterte warns DepEd suppliers, contractors against scammers

The spokesperson of Vice President-elect Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio, Liloan town mayor Christina Frasco is warning the public against individuals who claim to be connected with the office of the Vice President-elect and are collecting advance payments for projects of the Department of Education (DepEd).

“The office of Vice President-Elect Sara Duterte has received information about people presenting themselves as her representatives to allegedly collect advance payments for Department of Education projects — targeting contractors and suppliers of the organization,” Frasco said.

“The incoming Secretary of Education has not nor will never designate anyone to talk to or negotiate with contractors and suppliers to engage in corrupt activities — smearing her reputation and tarnishing the image of the entire DepEd and the thousands of people working hard under the organization,” she added.

Frasco urged the public to report such cases to authorities.

“Contractors, suppliers, and the general public are strongly urged to exercise prudence when dealing with individuals and/or groups claiming to represent the Vice President-Elect and incoming DepEd Secretary,” Frasco said.
