NEGROS Occidental Police Provincial Office (Nocppo) Director Colonel Romy Palgue warned the public Sunday, September 26, 2021, against a scammer claiming as him and soliciting money.

On Saturday, September 25, a complainant, whose name is withheld, from Binalbagan town received a call from a person claiming to be Plague and asked for donations.

The impostor, who failed to dupe the victim, used the cellphone number 09065771699.

Plague stressed it was not him as they strictly adhere to the “no take policy” of the Philippine National Police.

He ordered the Binalbagan police to investigate and track down the person behind the scam.

“We ask for the assistance of the public especially (for) information that would help us identify and apprehend the person who used the said cell number to stop him from victimizing unwary individuals," Palgue said.
