DAVAO CITY – Davao City 1st District Rep. Paolo Z. Duterte issued his latest warning Saturday against fixers reportedly using the name of his office in their nefarious activities.
Duterte, son of former president Rodrigo Duterte, issued a statement after receiving information that a woman claiming to be an employee of his office had been recruiting people who need medical assistance from the government through his congressional office.
He said the fixer would tell her would-be victims that his office is granting PHP30,000 in medical assistance.
Once the assistance is released, 10 percent of the amount, or PHP3,000, will go directly to her.
Duterte warned the public to report this person who has been using his name to trick unsuspecting Dabawenyos who desperately need assistance.
He urged them to be careful in dealing with persons who approach them claiming to be his employees, and report them immediately to the authorities.
"I will let her kneel in San Pedro Church for two nights," Duterte said, adding that charges would be filed against those who use his name to double-cross people.
"If you experienced the same thing, report it to the authorities and to the congressional office thru the number 096-6751-0792," he added. (PNA)
