A March 16, 2012 press release from the Department of Foreign Affairs
The DFA recently received a report from the Philippine Embassy in Singapore that a Filipino based in that country received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org informing him that the Department of Justice received a complaint with a request for the issuance of a warrant of arrest against him for his alleged involvement in some criminal activity.
The DFA wishes to inform the public that the abovementioned email account is not an official DFA account.
Notices regarding legal proceedings are never sent through email and applications for the issuance of warrants of arrest are filed before our courts and not the DOJ.
The public are advised not to fall victim to this modus operandi and to report any such emails to the DFA, the nearest Philippine Embassy or Consulate General or the National Bureau of Investigation’s Technical Intelligence Division (email@example.com).
