DAVAO CITY- Vice-Mayor Sebastian “Baste” Duterte on Saturday warned the public against individuals who are reportedly using his name or the Vice-Mayor’s office in ordering food and beverages from restaurants and other businesses.

Baste told Dabawenyos not to believe any person they do not know who uses his name or the Vice-Mayor’s office.

“I am informing everyone that I have not asked anyone to order food and beverages or make dining reservations on my behalf,” Baste in a statement said.

He is reminding everyone, especially business owners not to fall for this scam and malicious activity.

“I urge you all to report immediately to authorities any suspicious transaction supposedly under my name or authority,” he added.

He said,  should anyone receive a call or information similar to this, may also contact the Vice-Mayor’s office at (082) 222-0855 local 482 for confirmation and verification.
