The Philippine Statistics Authority Regional Statistical Service Office V
(PSA-RSSO) warns the public against an unscrupulous fundraising
campaign allegedly staged for retrenched employees using the names of
PSA Officials, particularly Undersecretary Claire Dennis S. Mapa and
Regional Director Cynthia L. Perdiz. The modus operandi of the scammer
is to call and text would-be victims to engage them in a friendly
conversation and eventually instigate transferring money to a bank
The PSA is in no way connected to an individual or groups involved in any
financial support scheme for a cause and does not solicit monetary
contributions to fund charitable activities.
