Claim: BDO opens new money-making platform for Filipinos
The news was verified by BDO Unibank themselves on their Face book Page.
On Wednesday, August 16, BDO Unionbank warned Filipinos that a false post utilizing the name and logo of CNN Philippines was not authentic. According to the post, “BDO UNIONBANK ANNOUNCED THE OPENING OF A NEW DIGITAL PLATFORM FOR ALL FILIPINOS.”
The SM-owned bank staes, “The video, as well as CNN Philippines’ logo, is FAKE and FABRICATED,”
CNN also fact checked the scam, stating that, “CNN Philippines is not associated with this Facebook post spreading disinformation. We did not report about BDO Unibank announcing a new digital platform for Filipinos. The CNN Philippines brand equates to accurate, fair and balanced reporting. We vigorously pursue these journalistic traits in our content.”
