Cardinal Jose Advincula, the newly appointed Archbishop of Manila, warned the public against a fake solicitation letter from the Archdiocese of Capiz asking for donations for the installation of the Cardinal.
According to Veritas News, Cardinal Advincula said that the solicitation has no basis and it is an act of fraud.
“This is Cardinal Advincula, I wish to notify the public that the letter bearing the signatures of a certain Fr. Allan Supilanas, Chancellor, and Bishop Pabillo soliciting donations for my installation as Archbishop of Manila is FAKE,” said the Cardinal in an interview with Radio Veritas.
He also stated that the signatory in the scam solicitation was not clergy in their archdiocese.
“Capiz has no priest surnamed SUPILANAS,” he added.
The installation of the new Archbishop of Manila is still tentative but according to the decree, it will be on May 13, Feast of Our Lady of Fatima.
Last month, Cardinal Luis Antonio G. Tagle’s email account was also hacked and used to solicit money to raise funds for the hospital bills of the said Cardinal. (Fatima Llanza/RCAM-AOC)
