MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) said on Thursday that a Facebook account with a similar name to the agency claiming to hire job seekers was fake.

“Ang ‘DS WD’ ay hindi opisyal na Facebook page ng DSWD at walang kaugnayan sa kagawaran. Ang naturang page ay gumagamit ng identidad ng DSWD nang walang pahintulot at nagpapakalat ng mga misleading content patungkol sa programa at serbisyo ng kagawaran pati na rin ng ibang ahensya,” the DSWD said in its Facebook post.

(DS WD is not the official Facebook page of the DSWD and is not associated with the agency. The page is using the identity of the DSWD without permission and is spreading misleading content about the programs and services of the departments, as well as other agencies.)

In the featured post of the said account, it claimed that the agency was hiring a data encoder, encouraging people to apply, which the DSWD denounced as fake.

The agency also told the public to visit its official website to check for legitimate job openings.

“Para sa mga job openings sa DSWD, bisitahin lamang ang aming website (http://jobs.dswd.gov.ph/) para sa listahan ng maaaring applayan na trabaho at ang proseso sa pag-apply,” it said.

(For job openings in the DSWD, visit our website for the list of available jobs and the application process.)

It also advised the public to report the said Facebook page and stay vigilant with the posts they read online.

“Hinihikayat din namin na i-report ang Facebook account na nasa itaas (We are also asking to report the said Facebook account),” it said.
