58-Year-Old Lady Loses P22k After Victimized by Scammer Foreigner
A 58-year-old lady identified as alias “Anna” loses P22, 000 after allegedly scammed by a foreigner and a suspect who pretend as an airport officer.
The lady victim filed a complaint against a foreign national and a suspect who pretended as a personnel of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. The Cebu woman and the American national met each other of Facebook.
Eventually, the American guy has decided to visit alias Anna in her province. The female victim was convinced after the guy showed some proof of his identity including pictures and identification cards.
The foreigner had his flight last July 5 and expected to arrive in the country on July 7 despite the ban of foreign tourists to enter Philippines amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Last July 7, an unidentified person claiming as an airport officer contacted Anna and told her that her foreigner friend has been hold at NAIA. The alleged airport crew also asked a huge amount of cash amounting P38,000 penalty fee and an additional fee of P6,381 for a plane ticket bound to Cebu.
However, Anna has no enough cash to pay the penalty fee and the scammer asked her to pay P15,000 for the penalty, P6,000 for a plane ticket, and additional fees for other expenses.
“Noong di ba ‘yung pag may money transfer [sinasabi] kung saan niya kinlaim, [lumabas na] malayo ‘yung bayan na kung saan nag-claim, napakalayo po. Pampanga po… Imagine sabi niya nasa airport siya tapos sa Pampanga na-claim ang pera,” Anna said.
