THE CITY Anti-Scam Unit is tracking establishments previously linked to fake vaccination cards following reports of the proliferation of unauthorized IDs and vaccine exemption cards.
In an interview with Davao City Disaster Radio on Thursday, Anti-Scam Unit head Simplicio Sagarino said they continue to monitor the usual suspects as well as other individuals who might be involved in producing bogus IDs.
“Naay nadakpan ang kapulisan ana, na-entrap sa Diaz Mall. Nag plead guilty last year. Ato napud nga gina-monitor ang maghimo anang vaccination card diha gihapon sa area nga atong na mention (Our police officers were able to entrap someone from Diaz Mall last year and the person already pleaded guilty. We are still monitoring if there are people who are making these cards in the same area),” Sagarino said.
On Monday, Mayor Sara Duterte issued a warning during the Special Hour Program against the production ofvaccination exemption cards and unauthorized vaccination cards.
The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) has warned the public that there is no such thing as “COVID-19 vaccination exemption cards” allegedly used by individuals to be exempted from stay-at-home orders, public transportation, as well as to enjoy other privileges.
The DILG clarified that the government will never issue nor recognize such cards because these run counter to the government’s national vaccination program to inoculate the majority of the populace to achieve population protection.
The Anti-Scam Unit, according to Sagarino, is open to receiving complaints on any transactions involving such unauthorized vaccination cards, investment scams, among others.
“Ato lang pahimangnuan ang atoang constituents na kung naa mo’y query and pagduda free man ang atong office alas otso hangtod alas singko, Lunes hangtod Biyernes (We would like to inform our constituents that if you have query or doubts, you are free to visit our office which is open from 8 am to 5 pm, Mondays to Fridays,” Sagarino said.
The office of the Anti-Scam Unit is located at Door 7, Ramon Magsaysay Park Complex Davao City. The hotline number of the office is 082-225-6044.
