Watch out posers online!
Maricel Laxa's poser for four years was caught via entrapment operation of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Anti-Cybercrime Group, "Bandila" reported last night, June 8.
Her poser, 19-year old student Myca Aranda, was caught in the act claiming five thousand pesos in a money remittance center.
The poser did not only create Maricel Laxa's fake account, but also of her whole family.
Her husband Anthony Pangilinan said, "Mas lumala nitong mga nakaraaang buwan dahil may pera nang involved… whether passing load or asking for donations.”
Anthony recalled that a stranger once approached them and told them of an online relationship with one of their children.
“May lumapit sa aming siya raw ang kasintahan nung isang anak namin dahil anim na buwan silang online ng may relasyon, ni hindi man nakilala nung bata,” he related.
Maricel was also shocked when someone approached them, asking for post-event photos from their charity projects.
“Baka pwedeng humingi ng litrato ng Benguet foundation ninyo saka nung outreach,” she recalled being told.
One of the godmothers of their children also called them saying, “Ang kulit-kulit ng anak mo na humihingi ng pera sa akin.”
As per PNP's advice, always be careful with all your transactions and the information you put online.
