The Civil Service Commission (CSC) cautioned the public about individuals pretending to be CSC employees or officials requesting for sensitive information or documents via text messages, emails, and phone calls.

CSC chairperson Karlo Nograles confirmed that the agency has received reports of unscrupulous parties posing as CSC officials to extort information, money, and favors from both government agencies and the general public. 

“We are reminding the public to be vigilant by directly verifying the authenticity of the transaction from the CSC Regional or Field Office concerned,” said Chairperson Nograles.

No individual or entity has permission to use the agency’s name and logo for online activities and promotion, regardless if it’s for solicitation, production of materials, enrollment to review classes, or recruitment purposes, according to the CSC. 

Nograles added that the CSC is ready to take the necessary legal actions against violators who are found guilty of this crime since their action undermines the integrity of the agency. 

“We would also like to warn individuals that usurpation of authority or falsely representing to be an officer, agent or representative of any department or agency of the Philippine Government is a violation under Article 177 of the Revised Penal Code.”

The public is advised to check the CSC website at www.csc.gov.ph to access a complete directory of CSC officials and contact details of all offices, and report any encounter with individuals or group falsely representing the agency to the CSC’s Contact Center ng Bayan at 0908-881-6565.

The CSC also reminded the public that it maintains only one official account on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok, and one page for each CSC Regional Office.
