Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has cautioned the public from unscrupulous individuals using her name for supposed donations to various activities in the city, including the alleged funding against the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).
The local chief executive said that what the people needed to do is to verify if those using her name to solicit money or favors are really staff at the City Mayor’s Office.
“Kung dunay tao nga muduol nga mag ingon nga mao ni ang sugo, the best way ana is to verify it with the city mayor’s office,” she said.
She said verification can be done by emailing her office at email@example.com or by sending a message to the Davao City Reports on Facebook.
The mayor said she has not authorized anyone to solicit donations on her behalf.
