20 May 2022 - The Civil Service Commission (CSC) warned the public against responding to a fraudulent spam email purportedly sent by Chairperson Karlo Nograles, in which the CSC chief requests assistance with the distribution of gifts.

The email reads: “Good morning. I have selected some of the staff to receive gifts for their hard work and I’ll be needing your assistance. I don’t know your schedule for today, so let me know if you’re able to assist me with this task. Your confidentiality will be appreciated. I wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise. Thanks. Regards, KARLO ALEXEI B. NOGRALES, Chairman”

The CSC stressed that said email did not originate from Chairperson Nograles nor his office.

It urged the public to be wary regarding messages of this nature, and to "always check the sender’s email address and, if in doubt, you may easily confirm it with the concerned office."

"The directory of all our offices, including official email addresses, is available on our website at www.csc.gov.ph."
