Authorities long since reminded the public to become extra cautious in dealing with people who they met online. There are a lot of modus these days to extort money from innocent people, be very wary of this.
The NBI Anti-Graft Division was arrested after he received the money worth P20, 000 from his chat mate. The suspect, identified as Jason Rabe, repeatedly asked money from the victim since last year.
The suspect claims that he will use the money for the hospitalization of her sibling and other problems in life.
The victim, identified only as Dale, became fed up of all the stories that Jason kept on telling him.
“What are your reasons? That your mother died, your sibling committed suicide. Even your brother is mad at me because you are getting sick because of me,” says Dale.
The money that Jason got from Dale reached to approximately P4 million including an investment on the business of Jason.
Dale, who works as an Overseas Filipino Worker, got suspicious to Jason and started investigating. He later found out that the business where he invested never existed.
Dale regretted that he trusted the suspect that he only met online.
“Every day, I cannot sleep properly because of too much regret,” says Dale.
It turns out that everything that Jason said was not true.
“I am asking help from my relatives to help me,” says Jason Rabe.
The NBI reminded the public to never fall prey to people that they only met online.
“Verify the real identity of the person you are talking to. Ask their friends and relatives,” says Atty. Nathaniel Ramos, Acting Chief, NBI Anti-Graft Division.
Jason, on the other hand, will be imprisoned as per the Cybercrime law.
