re: 2017 Fallacious Report of Chop Chop Scam

 

The National Capital Region Police Office has been exerting effort to respond to the veracity of the alleged viral information posted in social media.

 

The PNP-QCPD extracted optimum efforts to validate the existence of the said incident five (5) years ago but turned out that negative reported incident was well established pertaining to this viral issue.

 

The same was also denied by then DD, QCPD, PBGEN Guillermo Lorenzo T Eleazar in an answer posted also in social media.

 

Amid the issue, QCPD in coordination with Anti-Cybercrime Group is now investigating who are the alleged spreader of this fake news.

 

Therefore, we appeal to the public to be calm and avoid panic because the viral information is not true and never happened.

 

Time and again, we are giving stern and strict warning to those who are uploader of fake news that if they are found to be responsible on matters such as this mess, a full force of the law will be accorded to them.

 

Nonetheless, we further call to the public to report to us immediately any information pertaining to this fake news uploaded and rest assured that NCRPO will run after them.
