The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has issued a warning to the public regarding the unauthorized use of its name and logo for various online activities. The commission emphasized that no individual or entity has been granted permission to use its name and logo, including the old CSC emblem. This misuse of the CSC’s identity can lead to criminal prosecution and potential jail time.

Chairman Karlo Nograles of the CSC expressed his concern over the unauthorized use of the commission’s logo, stating that it misleads the public and undermines the integrity of their services. To prevent potential fraud and misinformation, Nograles strongly advises the public to exercise vigilance by verifying the authenticity of any communication or transaction with entities claiming to represent the Commission.

It is important to note that the unauthorized use of the CSC logo by individuals or entities without written permission, endorsement, or approval from the CSC is engaging in deceptive practices and will be dealt with to the fullest extent of the law.

In addition to the misuse of the CSC’s name and logo, there have been reports of unscrupulous individuals using the names of CSC officials and employees to harass employees of other government agencies. These individuals attempt to compel them to pay certain loans and obligations from individuals or lending institutions. Such actions are not only illegal but also tarnish the reputation of the CSC and its employees.

To ensure transparency and accountability, the CSC maintains only one official account on popular social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok. Each CSC Regional Office also possesses only one official Facebook Page. Any other accounts or pages claiming to represent the CSC are unauthorized and should be reported immediately.

The commission emphasizes that the unauthorized use of its name and logo is a serious offense. Under Article 177 of the Revised Penal Code, individuals who knowingly and falsely represent themselves as officers, agents, or representatives of any government agency, including the CSC, can be charged with usurpation of authority or official functions. This includes performing any act pertaining to any person in authority or public officer without lawful entitlement to do so.

Violators found guilty of this crime will face imprisonment as prescribed by the CSC.

To combat these fraudulent activities, Chairman Nograles urges the public to report any encounters with individuals or groups claiming to represent the CSC. Reports can be submitted through the CSC’s Contact Center ng Bayan at 09088816565 or via email at

In conclusion, the unauthorized use of the Civil Service Commission’s name and logo is a serious offense that undermines the integrity of their services. The CSC urges the public to exercise caution and verify the authenticity of any communication or transaction claiming to be from the commission. By remaining vigilant and reporting any encounters with unauthorized individuals or groups, we can work together to ensure the integrity of the CSC and protect the public from potential fraud and misinformation.
