CIAC warns public vs text message scammers

(From CIAC - Clark International Airport Corporation's Facebook)

THE Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC), under the leadership of retired police general Aaron Aquino, has warned the public against a group that uses his name and asking cash donations.

CIAC Vice President Irish Calaguas said they have received reports that the scammers are asking money from Aquino's friends in the business sector and other stakeholders of the corporation.

"Nakatanggap po ng mga report ang pamunuan ng CIAC na may kumakalat na text messages na humihingi diumano ng donasyong pera si General Aaron N. Aquino, CIAC president and CEO, mula sa kaniyang mga kakilala, mga negosyante, at mga stakeholders ng CIAC," Calaguas said.

She added that this is a clear scam and crime by using the name of the CIAC head to gyp money from the people.

"Paunawa po na ito ay isang scam, isang krimen na ginagamit ang pangalan ng pangulo ng CIAC upang makapanlinlang ng kapwa at manghingi ng pera," she said.

Aquino is not in any way involved in this illegal activity, according to Calaguas. "Wala pong kinalaman ang CIAC dito, lalo na ang President at CEO ng kumpanya."

Calaguas urged the public to report similar acts to CIAC for immediate actions.

"Kung mayroon po kayong natanggap na ganitong kahalintulad na scam messages, maaari pong i-report sa: (045) 599 2888 local 102, 103, 119;

FB Messenger: Clark Aviation; Email: ciaccco2019@gmail.com,” she added.

CIAC had already coordinated with the Anti Cyber Crime Units to stop this group.

"Nakipag ugnayan na po tayo sa cybercrime units ng mga awtoridad hinggil dito at tityakin natin na sasampahan ng kaukulang kaso ang mga may kagagawan ng ganitong scam," Calaguas said.
