Nailad mo ani nila?


I’ve heard several complaints about the modus operandi of these group.

First they give you some kind of card, then they would lure their victims into a makeshift kiosk under a big umbrella. Then the manipulation works there. Some have given 500 to 1,000 pesos.

A friend of mine gave 500, then a minutes after realizing how stupid she was, went back, but she had to raise her voice, so that the crooks had no choice but to return the money.

They usually operate near Emiat or Midtown bowling lane. The kiosk is located near the gasoline station in Badelles street.

    I and a friend had a close call with these people last December 2015. They gave us small Christmas cards telling us to go to the kiosk and exchange the card for a free umbrella. We sensed there was something fishy about it because the cards looked pretty much ordinary so we took the card and we told them that we’ll come back later to claim the umbrella.

    They rudely took back the card and told us that it wouldn’t be valid if we claimed it at a later hour. These people should be reported to authorities.

      They were already reported. Then they disappeared for many weeks, but came back. The time they disappeared, they were in Cebu City doing the same modus.
