MANILA – The Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-IBIG Fund) has cautioned the public to be wary against scammers employing extortion schemes using the names of its fund officers.
In an advisory on Wednesday, Pag-IBIG Fund said unscrupulous individuals pretending as its employees were demanding money from their lured victims.
Pag-IBIG Fund clarified that these fraudulent activities did not come from its end.
“Please be informed that Pag-IBIG Fund officers and Pag-IBIG Fund itself are not in any way connected to this illegal activity,” it said.
Pag-IBIG Fund encouraged the public to only get information from its official social media channels and website.
“We urged the public to immediately report to the authorities or to any Pag-IBIG Fund office any person who misrepresents Pag-IBIG Fund and its officers so that appropriate action can be taken against them,” it said.
