Senior deputy majority leader and Ilocos Norte 1st district Rep. Sandro Marcos has warned his social media followers against “irresponsible and unscrupulous individuals or groups”.
This was in connection with solicitations for cash done in the name of the presidential son, which he has disavowed.
Marcos specifically mentioned the activities of the Facebook page “Sandro Marcos Unofficial”, which he denied any involvement with.
“Earlier this year, specifically on March 6, 2022, Sandro Marcos Unofficial claimed to have organized a “meet and greet” event with me, charging 4.500 pesos per person for transportation, hotel, ID, and t-shirt. On even date, we denied any involvement of the said event,” the rookie solon wrote in a Facebook post Tuesday, Aug. 2.
“Please know that I would never approve of anyone charging fees, much more an exorbitant amount for a meet and greet,” he underscored.
“Recently, my team learned that a fund-raising event is again set to be organized in my name.
“This is to reiterate that Sandro Marcos Unofficial Facebook page is not in any way affiliated, associated, authorized, endorsed by, or officially connected to me or anyone from my team,” he stressed.
“I only have one Facebook page, one Instagram account, one Twitter account, one YouTube account, and an official website,” Marcos, 28, said.
“I appreciate all your support, but it will all go to waste of my name will be tainted by irresponsible and unscrupulous individuals or groups. Let us be mindful of our actions and ensure that solicitations of any kind from unauthorized groups are not entertained,” he appealed to his followers.
