The Department of the Interior and Local Government has issued a warning against the unauthorized use of the DILG logo and seal for the purposes of solicitation, sponsorship, recruitment, production of materials, and obtaining other favors from local government units and even field offices of the agency.

“The DILG has not issued any authorization to use its name, logo, or address for illegal transactions of any private individuals and groups,” said OIC Regional Director Araceli San Jose.

She said the DILG is continuously receiving reports that various private individuals, organizations, or groups are either using the DILG seal and/or logo without authority.

San Jose advised the public to immediately report to the authorities any encounter with such individuals or their bogus group and all other related incidents involving similar schemes. – Press release
