PNP WARNS PUBLIC VS SWINDLER PRETENDING TO BE PNP CHIEF CASCOLAN

The Philippine National Police on Tuesday warned the public against “cybercrime swindling operation” of an individual pretending to be PNP chief Police General Camilo Pancratius Cascolan.

According to PNP spokesperson Police Colonel Ysmael Yu, based on the information provided by the PNP Anti-Cybercrime Group, a poser created a Facebook account, under the name of Cascolan, “to bolster his criminal misrepresentation and impersonation scheme.”

He said investigators has already identified the owner and creator of the said account. Authorities also alerted social media giant Facebook regarding the matter.

PNP-ACG chief Police Brigadier General Dennis Agustin said case build-up operations against the suspect yielded evidence that will establish a strong case for violation of anti-cybercrime laws.

Cascolan was informed of the illegal activities of the suspect by a friend whose nephew cop in Cabanatuan City was almost duped into sending P10,000 in exchange for a reassignment in a preferred post.

Data from the PNP-ACG indicated that as of September 17, a total of 76 persons have been charged for 113 separate cases of cybercrime-related offenses while 27 violators have been arrested since March.
