PFDA PUBLIC ADVISORY 07-2021: Illegal Impersonation of a PFDA Official

The Philippine Fisheries Development Authority warns the public against individuals/groups who illegally use the name of the agency and impersonate any PFDA official for unknown, unscrupulous agenda. 

It has come to the agency’s attention that there are anonymous individual/s or group/s who are pretending to be a PFDA official and directly contacting Regional Fish Port managers in Bulan, Iloilo, and Davao sending sudden notice of arrival, arranging unscheduled meetings, and shouting expletive words over the phone. 

There is no clear motive for the impersonation, but the PFDA does not tolerate any form of false representation of the agency’s name and its officials. Therefore, the agency warns all regional operating units and the public of possible fraudulent and nefarious undertakings of these illegal impersonators.

Should anyone encounter transactions and/or solicitations of a similar nature, please report this immediately to the Public Information Division Office at the telephone number (02) 8925-6141 or e-mail address This email address is being protected from spambots.
