EMPLOYMENT SCAM USING PNOC NAME AND LOGO

 

PUBLIC ADVISORY

 

The existence of a malicious and despicable scam being perpetuated using a spurious Facebook page purporting to be affiliated with the Philippine National Oil Company (PNOC) under the account name PNOC Careers (https://www.facebook.com/pages/category/Oil-Lube---Filter-Service/PNOC-Careers-103718834846467/) has been brought to our urgent attention:

 

The modus operandi of this spurious Facebook page is to take advantage of the desperation of the public under these difficult and challenging times by promising job or career opportunities with PNOC or its subsidiaries through them and requiring the payment of a fee for the placement or recruitment service. The perpetrators will now run away with the public’s hard-earned money.

THE PUBLIC IS HEREIN INFORMED THAT:

  • PNOC DOES NOT REQUIRE THE PAYMENT OF ANY PROCESSING FEE OR ANY OTHER AMOUNT TO BE PAID IN APPLYING FOR EMPLOYMENT IN PNOC or ANY OF ITS SUBSIDIARIES.

  • PNOC, OR ANY OF ITS SUBSIDIARIES, IS NO WAY CONNECTED WITH THIS FACEBOOK PAGE

  • PNOC DOES NOT HAVE ANY EXTERNAL ARRANGEMENTS WITH “PLACEMENT OR RECRUITMENT OFFICES” OUTSIDE ITS INTERNAL HUMAN RESOURCES OFFICE AT PNOC.

  • THIS FACEBOOK PAGE, OR ANY SUCH SIMILAR PAGE UNDER THE SAME MODUS OPERANDI, IS FAKE, A SCAM AND IS A PUNISHABLE CRIMINAL OFFENSE.

  • LEGITIMATE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN PNOC ARE POSTED AT ITS OFFICIAL WEBSITE https://www/pnoc.com.ph

The Facebook page “PNOC Careers” is engaged in the unauthorized and illegal using the name and logo of our organization, the Philippine National Oil Company (PNOC), and those of our subsidiaries, PNOC Exploration Corporation and PNOC Renewables Corporations, to perpetuate their illegal activities to extort payment in exchange for employment opportunities.

PNOC has reported this alarming matter to FACEBOOK and proper government authorities in order for them to conduct a thorough investigation to hold those responsible for this nefarious conduct accountable and answerable for their heartless and unconscionable illegal activities and be accordingly prosecuted under the strong arm of our laws.

More than ever, in these challenging and difficult times, we must work together to be vigilant not only in protecting ourselves from the threat of COVID19 but also in thwarting these criminals who seek to perpetrate evil and illegal acts at the expense of the public.

The PNOC group of companies is one with the Filipino people in rehabilitating our economy towards recovering together as one nation.
