Good day! I would like to request verification of legitimacy for an online lending apps in google play store namely PhPocket. When you search online if they are registered with SEC, it is said that PhPocket has registration number CS 2019912383 CA 3044 under Pocketcash Philippines. But when I checked on the list of lending companies with SEC it comes out that the registration number is under Elending Lending Inc  with online application as Pocketcash with an address in North Penthouse Unit, Ignition Venture Studio, Marajo Tower, 1630 Taguig City, Philippines. Telephone number 02 82410453
