MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) on Tuesday debunked a Facebook page offering financial assistance.According to the DSWD, the Facebook group “DSWD Online Tulong 10k Assistance (Ayuda)” is not official.

The agency added that it does not give financial assistance online.

“Hindi totoo na ang Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) ay namimigay ng Php10,000 na tulong pinansyal online. Ang DSWD ay hindi nagbibigay ng anumang halaga hangga’t hindi ito dumadaan sa assessment ng ating social worker,” the DSWD said in its post.


(It is not true that the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) gives a P10,000 financial aid online. The DSWD does not extend aid unless it goes through the assessment of our social workers.)


The DSWD advised the public not to fall for these posts as these may be scamming techniques, and to only source their information from its official platforms.

“Huwag magtiwala at huwag magpaloko sa mga posts na nakapaloob sa group na ito dahil maaari kayong maging biktima ng SCAM,” it said.

(Do not fall for posts in this group as you may be victimized by scams.)

“Kilatising mabuti at i-verify muna ang mga nababasa. Huwag basta-basta maniwala sa mga content na hindi nanggaling sa credible at reliable source tulad ng Facebook group page na ito,” it added.

(Analyze and verify first. Do not believe content that does not come from credible and reliable sources like this Facebook group page.)
