2 suspects in ‘love scam’ arrested in Pampanga
In San Fernando, Pampanga, the Airport Police Department arrested two suspects allegedly involved in the “love scam,” Mao dela Cruz reported on Super Radyo dzBB on Monday.
In an interview with Super Radyo dzBB, Airport Police Chief Colonel Adrian Tecson said the two suspects were caught in an entrapment operation.
According to the report, the suspects have obtained up to P10 million from the 62-year-old victim since March.
According to Tecson, the perpetrators allegedly first interacted with the victim on Facebook until it led to a relationship.
“‘Yung babae usually sasabihan ‘yung lalaki na may ipapadalang bagahe na diumano may lamang alahas, another valuables at na-hold sa Customs. Hihingi po ng pera ‘yan para mailabas ‘yung diumanong bagahe,” he said.
Authorities launched the operation after a flurry of complaints they received from victims this past week.
The suspects are currently detained at the Airport Police Department Headquarters.
