Guinobatan Mayor Ann Gemma Ongjoco warns vs scam


Guinobatan Mayor Ann Gemma Ongjoco has taken to Facebook to warn her constituents of a scam being perpetrated by unscrupulous persons using the logo of the local government.

According to Ongjoco, these persons used the logo of the municipality of Guinobatan for solicitation for the group Cool Squad Dance Krew, in connection with a dance contest.

But she said the Guinobatan government was not connected to the group and neither has it endorsed it and allowed anybody to use the town’s logo.

The event coordinator has no connection with Guinobatan as well, she added.

Solicitation attempts using the name of the local government should be reported, she said.

Don’t be scammed!


It has come to the attention of LGU-Guinobatan that unscrupulous persons have been using the logo of the Municipality for solicitation purposes of group/s such as Cool Squad Dance Krew for the purpose of joining the Dance Showdown Competition which is supposed to be held on November 25, 2019 at Guinobatan, Albay.

Please be forewarned that the LGU-Guinobatan is in no way connected nor have endorsed or have allowed any person/s or group to use our logo.
