DepEd Warns Against Con Artist Posing As DepEd Secretary


The Department of Education warns the public against an impostor pretending to be Education Secretary Armin A. Luistro soliciting financial assistance for DepEd projects.

A man claiming that he is Secretary Luistro has asked some colleges and universities as well as private businesses for at least P10,000 in donation to be deposited to the account of his secretary, Ms. Ester Avilla at Landbank Batangas account # 0277166445 or via Cebuana Lhuillier c/o Ester C. Corpuz or Jaime Jacob.

The caller uses cellphone numbers 0926-7144527, 0926-7144543 and 0927-7110047.

Any similar incident of illegal solicitation should be disregarded or promptly reported to DepEd at phone number 6316033.

    seriously??? tsk tsk… knowing the establishments which were victimized, i feel sorry for them. they didn’t know how to handle this kind of situation. Verification of the identity of the person should be the first thing they have done.

    Thank you for this information. Indeed, there are people who take advantage of multi-media gadgets like cellphones to foll others and make money.
