Buddy Posted November 25, 2009 Posted November 25, 2009 Here is a new scam to tell others to be aware of and to make sure not to fall for. I guess some people can be easy prey every time someone thinks up a new scam but I have to wonder if this guy even bothered to read forums and if the Philippine government will really go after the girl or guy or? I have to wonder if maybe Manuel is really the first name and not the last? :yes: CEBU, An American national based in Florida, USA asked the Cebu City Police Office to look into his case after he allegedly fell victim of scamming perpetrated by a Filipina who reportedly received cash from him worth to be around P100,000. :wt-hell: Allan Toor, of undetermined age, expressed through a 10-page letter he sent to CCPO director Patrocinio Comendador to look into the matter so that the woman, who used the face of singer-actress-host Karylle Tatlonghari, will no longer be able to allegedly victimize other foreigners.Toor said that the woman he met on a dating web site identified herself as Arkishra Toribio Manuel, 29 years old, a native of Zamboanga City, with an apartment address in Liomo Highway, Consolacion town. Her last contact was in Makati City, Toor said.He added that Manuel, for the nth time, did not push through with her promise to meet him in Florida. He said he has sent her money many times amounting to almost P100,000 for her documents like visa, for her dormitory rentals, and others.Since last September, or from the time they exchanged information, Manuel allegedly kept on telling him that she would fly for the USA to work as a nurse there, but who also gave him reasons why she was not able to push through, in which Toor believed also.The foreigner said that he was at the Florida airport on October 16 waiting for the supposed arrival of the woman. When she failed to show up, he decided to check at the ticket booth and found out that Manuel had no ticket number contrary to what she had told him.In deep frustration, Toor was allegedly hospitalized for three days and later on got convinced that he was being scammed so that he raised the matter to Comendador as well as the police in Manila.
