LTO warns of fake social media pages after ‘namesake’ streamed a video game

MANILA, Philippines — The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has warned netizens of fake social media accounts bearing their name, after a supposedly bogus Facebook page started a stream of a popular shooting video game.

LTO on Monday clarified in its official Facebook account that a Facebook page bearing the name “Land Transportation Office (LTO)” is not managed by the transportation agency after a screenshot of the stream went viral a few days ago.

“The Facebook (FB) page ‘Land Transportation Office (LTO),’ which streamed a game last 17 July 2020, is NOT managed, affiliated, or recognized by our Agency,” LTO said.

A netizen’s post on Saturday gained attention after the user streaming a Playersunknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) game used a page with LTO’s name. The streamer used LTO’s logo as its profile picture and even had a picture of its office as its cover photo.

The page’s locator pinpoints to LTO’s main office along East Avenue in Quezon City. As of now, the page has over 23,227 likes.

LTO released a list of their official pages and websites to avoid public confusion:

1. Websites
http://www.lto.gov.ph, http://www.lto.net.ph, https://portal.lto.gov.ph
2. Facebook Pages

Here are the Official FB pages maintained by our Central and Regional Offices.

3. Email
lto.cdmpao@gmail.com, ltoco.pacd@gmail.com, ltocdmpao@lto.gov.ph and ltomailbox@lto.gov.ph
