The scammer did not spare the donation of up to P15,000 raised through social media by a child to treat his sick father.
In a report by Emil Sumangil on GMA News “24 Oras” on Monday, Jayvee Buracan said that he asked for help from netizens to raise money for the treatment of his father Ernesto who has heart disease.
“Hindi po talaga sapat sa pang-araw-araw at tsaka sa pambili po ng gamot ng tatay ko (kaya ako nag-post sa social media),” explained Jayvee.
There were people of goodwill who gave help and Jayvee collected P15,000 in donations. But if there are good people, there will not be bad people either.
According to Jayvee, someone contacted him who would also give money and asked for mobile wallet account information.
But giving money was not really the purpose of the person who contacted him if not to steal money for his father.
“Hindi ko na po kasi naisip kung anong masamang mangyayari sa’kin, parang lahat ng maibibigay kong impormasyon dahil talagang nangangailangan po,” said Jayvee.
“Nabilog niya po ako tapos nakuha niya po sa’kin ‘yong mga impormasyon,” he added.
Jayvee has already informed the Philippine National Police Anti-Cybercrime Group of the incident.
According to PNP-ACG spokesperson Police Captain Mark Norbe, they already have a possible suspect in the incident and they have promised to bring Jayvee and his family to justice.
14-year-old man shot dead by friend
A 14-year-old man died after he was allegedly accidentally shot in the face by his friend in Santol, La Union.
In a report by Jasmin Gabriel-Galban on GMA Regional TV “Balitang Amianan” on Monday, the suspect was identified as Raffy Olario, 22-years-old.
During the police investigation, it appeared that the suspect and the victim went to the wedding, along with their two other friends, and slept there as well.
But the two friends were surprised when they heard a loud bang.
The two allegedly saw Olario holding a gun and the victim was bleeding.
According to the police, it appears from the investigation that the suspect tried to revive the victim and he even searched for a vehicle to run the young man to the hospital.
According to Olario’s statement to the police, he only found the gun in the area and shot the victim by accident.
