UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN MINDANAO WARNS PUBLIC AGAINST SCAMMERS

/ 28 October 2021

THE UNIVERSITY of Southern Mindanao urged the public to be vigilant against scammers who pose as the university president.

USM on Tuesday said that its constituents should be wary of a Facebook and Instagram account named “Francisco Gil Garcia.”

It said that the account has been soliciting money by using the name of the university president for a charity drive.

“These are persons who are out to discredit the name and reputation of the University President through criminal activities and illegal schemes,” USM said on Facebook.

“Let us all be vigilant and immediately report all suspicious activities and schemes that are using the name of the University President for possible prosecution and legal action,” it added.

The university also asked the public to report such cases by calling 064-572 -2138 or via [email protected]
