MANILA, Philippines — The Civil Service Commission yesterday cautioned the public against individuals pretending to be CSC employees or officials to extort money from government workers.

The CSC issued the warning after receiving reports about scammers calling government employees and informing them that administrative cases have been filed against them.

The victims are then instructed to pay a large amount of money to clear themselves of the charges, according to the CSC.

The commission maintained that it is not a practice of the CSC to contact government employees regarding the settlement of complaints.

The administrative complaints filed with the agency are decided through adjudication process under the Rules on Administrative Cases in the Civil Service, CSC chairperson Alicia dela Rosa-Bala said.

Bala advised the public to report such unscrupulous activities to the CSC office for legal affairs at telephone numbers (02) 8931-8016 and (02) 8931-7935 local 401 to 411 or e-mail ola@csc.gov.ph.

The CSC said scams may also be reported to its public service arm, Contact Center ng Bayan, by sending text message to 0908-8816565 or e-mail contactcenterngbayan.gov.ph.
