The Department of Transportation has warned the public night of a Bitcoin scam using Sec. Arthur Tugade's photo to get users to disclose their personal information.
Tugade's image and name are superimposed on a fake driver's license, and users who click on the sponsored ad are led to a Bitcoin Code landing page where they will be asked for their name, phone number, e-mail address, and passwords.
The DOTr said information extracted by the site does not go to the agency. It advised the public to be cautious as data divulged can be used for malicious purposes or criminal intent.
