An international relations expert made a surprising discovery amid the criticisms received by Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) after unveiling their new logo.
In a Facebook post, Sass Rogando Sasot posted a logo that was so similar to the logo made by Printplus Graphic Services for PAGCOR that cost the taxpayers P3-M.
“Looks familiar? Yup, that’s the PAGCOR Logo. Pangit na, plagiarised pa. PAGCOR 3 million contract only changed the colors of this logo,” Sasot said.
However, after some investigation, we discovered that the website was only newly created.
The website admin, who was using the name @tripperadmin, also posted several signs that he was only ‘trolling’ the internet amid the PAGCOR issue.
Well, even the website’s name already showed an obvious sign that it was only created to mislead the people.
Meanwhile, an IT expert warned the netizens about trying to register on the said website.
“Guys don’t let your emotions get ahead of you. It looks like someone is piggyback riding on the PAGCOR logo issue to collect our personal data. Based on my initial investigation, the website is newly created. I’m too busy to explain everything but this looks like a social engineering + phishing attack.” netizen JJ Vestil said.
