The Cali Mayor’s Office issued an alert to the public through its official website, in which it denounced alleged unscrupulous people, who are trying to collect a sum of money in exchange for accessing the benefits of the housing subsidy.
The information went viral through social networks and through WhatsApp broadcast messages.
These massive publications indicate that, if the interested person wishes to enjoy the benefits to acquire a social interest home, they must follow some meticulous steps that include, of course, the payment of a certain amount that must be deposited in a bank account.
The invitation of the Secretary of Housing and Habitat of the Mayor’s Office of Cali to citizens is to keep in mind that all the procedures to apply for government subsidies are completely free.
This both locally and nationally; Likewise, to carry out these procedures, no intermediaries or deposits are required.
The Prosecutor’s Office warns that, if you receive one of these messages, you, a family member or friend, through your social networks or email, must immediately file a complaint with the authorities.
