PUBLIC ADVISORY TO BOC IMPORTERS AND BROKERS

July 14, 2016

The Bureau of Customs strongly warns concerned stakeholders of a fraudulent email being sent to accredited importers and brokers of the bureau.

The email, which carries BOC’s logo, contact information and address, also bears the signature of former Commissioner John P. Sevilla, which makes the email highly questionable.

The email requires stakeholders to log in on a site using the unsuspecting target’s email address.

Once recipient of the email clicks on the hyperlink “HERE,” he/she will be routed to a page that warns about entry to a dangerous site. Customs warns recipient to refrain from entering the site, otherwise he/she might be a victim of phishing or identity theft.

The bureau also encourages the public to report any suspicious mail, email or transactions, both online and personal, to the agency’s customer service center at boc.cares@customs.gov.ph or contact 705 6000.
