MANILA, Philippines — The National Privacy Commission (NPC) has warned the public against fraudsters threatening business establishments of supposed violations of the data privacy law.

In a statement, the NPC said the agency does not resort to threats or intimidation in seeking compliance with the Data Privacy Act (DPA).

The commission said several business establishments have been approached and threatened by people posing as NPC employees for supposed violation of the law.

It urged the public to communicate with the agency to verify the identity of individuals introducing themselves as employees of the privacy body at telephone numbers (02) 5108309, 09101029114 and 09652863419.
