Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte cautioned the public not to fall victim to a fake Facebook account bearing her name and photo and asking people for money.
Duterte’s statement, now circulating in the social media, warned “everyone about a scam pretending to be me on Facebook, sending friend requests and private messages about my supposed partnership with a “financing structure” that offers a grant or loan amounting $5,000 to $5,000,000.”
“This account is fake. I do not have an FB messenger and I never ask people for money. This is another repugnant attempt by unscrupulous individuals to dupe people by using my name. Thank you,” Mayor Duterte was quoted as saying.
