cebu-pacific-airlines-philippines1Cebu Pacific Air is cooperating with the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) Anti-Cybercrime Group to apprehend fraudsters who pose as official sales agents of Cebu Pacific and initiate fake transactions on behalf of the airline on Facebook.
CEB forwarded names, IP addresses and the transaction details of all reported fraudsters to the Philippine National Police for their immediate action, and also to Facebook for immediate account termination.


The fraudulent pages use Cebu Pacific branding to pose as an official transaction page for the airline.


Fraudsters also request payments to be transferred via remittance to specific individuals, and not to Cebu Pacific.
Once apprehended and proven to have violated the Cybercrime Law(Republic Act No. 10175), fraudsters may face imprisonment of up to 12 years and penalties of at least P200,000; or both.


Fraudsters may also be prosecuted and held liable for violation of other penal laws.
“We encourage the travelling public to book their flights through the official Cebu Pacific Air website or reservation hotlines, and to transact with legitimate sales agents to prevent fraud and inconvenience.


We are working closely with the PNP Anti-Cybercrime Group to protect our passengers from fraudsters whether online or in other channels,” said Atty. Jorenz Tanada, Cebu Pacific Air, VP – Corporate Affairs.
