The Bureau of Customs (BOC) on Monday warned the public against dubious accounts using the names of its officials and personnel, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

“The accounts are disseminating false information against the agency and its officials and personnel. The Bureau warns all unscrupulous individuals and strongly condemns such acts of invasion of privacy which victimize innocent people,” it said in an advisory.

The warning was issued after receiving several reports regarding fake accounts using the names and photos of its employees.
