The Philippine Embassy in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday warned Filipinos against entities posing as its staff and illegally representing the post, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

The warning came following reports of an unscrupulous entity illegally representing Ambassador Jose Manuel Romualdez through social media platforms like Instagram.

The modus operandi of the fraud scheme currently making rounds online informs potential victims that their Instagram account "was one of the lucky 30 randomly selected winners of the ongoing international giveaway" of the envoy as part of the "Covid-19 relief fund shared by united states [sic] round the globe".

Victims will then be asked to pay a transaction fee related to the transfer of a cash prize to their bank account.

"The Philippine Embassy informs the public that there is no prize selection or program related to cash giveaway, especially as part of an international Covid-19 relief fund," the embassy statement read.

It reminded the public to always verify all information and dismiss any untrustworthy messages or offers that they may get through social media.

The Philippine Embassy in Washington, D.C. only operates under the following verified accounts:
