MANILA-- The Department of Energy (DOE) has warned the public that "unscrupulous individuals" are using the name of Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi in extracting sensitive information regarding stakeholders.
In an advisory issued Wednesday, the department said these individuals have apparently been after contact numbers and other information.
We advise the public, particularly the industry participants, that such solicitations are not authorized by Secretary Cusi, the DOE said.
The department noted that they have even received calls from persons claiming to be the Executive Secretary but were proven to be fake.
We encourage the public to report any suspicious communication from these individuals or groups and to verify the authenticity of any message through the DOE Trunkline No. ?479-29-00," it said.
