Mag-ingat sa mga ikinakalat na polyeto
Beware of misleading advertisement circulated by establishments pretending to be officially recognized by the Philippine Embassy and the Philippine Government for securing documents, providing advise on consular and legal matters, and assistance in the processing of requirements for consular services.
These establishments profess to procure documentary requirements for the following – passports, LCCMs, ROMs/MCs, ROBs/BCs, SPAs and affidavits, “red ribbon”, annulment of marriage, court recognition for divorce, visiting visa to Japan, among others.
These establishments and their representatives found outside or near embassy premises are not accredited or authorized by the Philippine Embassy and Philippine Government agencies such as the DFA, NSO / PSA and NBI.
The public is advised to conduct their transactions directly with the Consular Section of the Philippine Embassy. A number of Filipinos were already victimized by these unscrupulous establishments. Either they were charged expensive fees for services they did not need, or they did not obtain the service or document they paid for, with some documents being spurious.
