DOF not probing bank transactions of individuals

MANILA, May 10 – – The Department of Finance (DOF) on Tuesday warned the public against believing letters claiming that the Department’s Finance Council is investigating bank transactions of individuals.

In a statement, the DOF said the fabricated letter cites Memorandum No. 54-2016, addressed to Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima, by an alleged lawyer Honesto Obosa.

It said the letter claims “to have investigated the bank records of former Representative Arnulfo Fuentebella.”

”The DOF would like to certify that there is no such Finance Council in existence, and that the memorandum in question is fictitious. Further, there is no Atty. Honesto Obosa connected with the DOF,” it said.

”The DOF cautions the public against these inauthentic documents being used to further personal or political interests,” it added. (PNA)
