Sara warns public vs scammers

MANILA, Philippines — Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio yesterday warned the public against individuals forging her signature in real estate transactions.

Carpio was referring to a document showing her fake signature as a notary public for a property that has been sold in Taguig City.

“It has come to my attention that some unscrupulous individuals are using a notarial stamp with my name to run a scam selling properties in Taguig. The signature therein is not mine,” Carpio, who is a lawyer, said.

“I do not practice law anymore. I am not a notary public nor have I ever applied to be one,” she added.

Carpio urged the public to be vigilant in engaging with people who use her name in financial transactions.

“These fraudulent activities should be reported immediately to the Philippine National Police and National Bureau of Investigation,” she said.
