Dahil sa Bagong Sim-Swap Modus, Nanakawan ng P100k ang Babaeng ito

Published

on

The coronavirus pandemic has been tough for everyone, but this doesn’t stop hustlers and crooks from doing their dirty work. In spite of the crisis that is affecting millions of people, there are still a lot of scams on the work, hunting for another unsuspecting victim. One of the most prevalent scam these days is the sim-swap modus, wherein scammers use the victim’s sim card to access his bank account.

Among those who were victimized by the sim-swap modus is Cassie, not her real name. In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Cassie revealed that she lost Php 100,000 from her bank account after falling victim for this scam. According to Cassie, on June 12, a person dressed up as a Globe Telcom employee visited on her condo unit.

The suspect offered Cassie to upgrade her sim card to 5G. A few days prior, Cassie lost her internet connection, so she thought that upgrading her sim will solve future internet problems. Not knowing that it was all a fraud, she agreed and gave her sim card to the suspect and he left.

“Ang guards hindi po sila nagdududa. So pagkakuha ko ng sim sabi niya ite-test out Kaya ang sagot ko ‘ah okay ‘yung number ko ba hindi mapapalitan?’ Tapos sabi niya ‘Ma’am hindi. I-a-upgrade lang po ‘yong sim yan parang trial po yan kapag binigay niyo po yung sim maa-activate namin.”

A few minutes later, Cassie received an email notifying her that someone is trying to open her bank account. Now growing suspicious, she immediately called her bank account, but due to the long wait in the queue, it was already too late. By the time she accessed her bank account, Cassie was devastated to see that more than Php 100,000 has been missing.

On the other hand, NBI Cybercrime Division chief Victor Lorenzo warned about this scam, also known as sim-swap modus. According to Lorenzo, scammers use your cellphone’s sim card in order to get the one-time pin needed to access your bank account. He advised the public to be more wary and always be vigilant.

That being said, they were extremely worried when April Boy was rushed to a hospital in Antipolo. According to JC, they arrived at 4:00 pm but it took the hospital more than two hours to admit them. By that time, the singer was already so weak that he needed a nebulizer to help him breathe.

His scheduled dialysis did not push through because the hospital claimed there was another patient in need of dialysis. A few hours later, April Boy’s condition worsened until his body finally gave up.

“Lumobo yung tiyan niya, masakit daw kanina tiyan niya tapos tinurukan ng gamot sa tiyan. Maya-maya umano na yung dila niya, lumobo yung tiyan. Nakikiusap ako na idialysis na,” said Madelyn, the singer’s wife. According to Madelyn, the dialysis would surely make a difference in the singer’s condition.

Because of these revelation, many people can’t help but think that there was some negligence in the hospital’s part. As of now, the singer’s remains are interred at his restobar in Marikina City. Fans are still waiting for the update about his funeral.

On Instagram, Taberna recently shared that his daughter agreed to shave her head. One of the side effects of chemotherapy is hair loss, so Zoey opt to just shave her hair altogether. According to the news anchor, he still cries everytime he watches the video of his daughter shaving her head.

“Nung pumayag si Zoey na magpakalbo at nalaman kong pumunta na sa ospital ang misis ko kasama si Ate Tet, umalis muna ako. Akala ko ay malakas na ako. Marupok pala. May video habang kinakalbo si Zoey. At tuwing makikita ko iyon, hindi ko mapigil ang pagpatak ng aking luha,” wrote the anchor on Instagram.

Aside from Taberna, Rossel and her sister, Helga, also looks after Zoey. In spite of the challenges they are facing, the couple is not losing any hope. In addition to that, he also explained that he admires Zoey’s courage.

“Nakangiti siya pero alam kong durog na durog ang puso niya nu’ng nag-umpisang malagas ang kaniyang buhok dahil sa chemotherapy. Ang wala o maikling buhok ang isa sa dahilan ng insecurity ni Zoey. Pero nu’ng makita kong ipinost niya, nagpaalam ako na ipo-post ko rin. Hanga ako sa tapang ng aming panganay.”
