Beware: New modus of scammers take advantage of our kindness to strangers!

BEWARE: New modus capitalizes on the kindness of people or shall we say our tendency to curry favor even to a stranger that appears in need of help!!! Let me explain using the example of a netizen from Cavite.

The netizen shared her post on Facebook to serve as a warning to the people who happened to find her post.

The incident happened in Robinson’s Pala Pala in Dasmarinas Cavite.

According to the netizen, the woman in the video politely asked if she would be kind enough to snap a picture of her. This ‘polite’ technique is designed to get your trust.

The reason being, her family in Cotabato wants to see her at least even in the picture. Be careful with this trick. This ‘paawa’ effect is designed to capitalize on the weakness of people that tends to help strangers in need.

The netizen fell for the trap laid out by the woman. She obliged and took the picture of the woman. Naturally, the woman asked the kind netizen if she could take a glimpse of the picture. Since the netizen was kind enough to snap the picture of the woman, she was also kind enough to grant her wish.

Unbeknown to her, the noose of the trap the woman laid out was slowly being tightened.

After seeing her picture, the woman suddenly shifted gears and became even more conversant acting as they’ve been friends for ages and knows her family very well. And in a sudden twist of the story, the woman suddenly acted like she have old issues with the netizen.

Turned out, this is the start of the modus to blackmail her victim and demand money. How?

First, the woman accused the kind netizen of stealing her phone and demanded to give it back. Of course, the netizen stood her ground and remained unruffled.

Since the kind netizen knows how to stonewall the scammer, the latter shifted to the next strategy.

This time, the scammer demanded 100 pesos to be paid each week. Again, this did not work since the netizen remained unperturbed by the antics of the scammer.

In the end, the netizen successfully parried all attempts by the scammer to milk money from her. Her only complain was that she was embarrassed a lot since she put in a hot seat since the incident happened in a crowded place and people were looking at her as if she was the villain in the story.

Be wary when you encounter people like this.She even have the gull to threaten her victim to hide from her because she will call her accomplices.

You may watch the video now.

Be ware of this girl (in Robinsons Pala Pala). She will first ask you (in a very polite way) to take a picture of her using your camera, her reason is her family in Cotabato wants to see her at least in pictures. After taking pics, she's gonna ask if she may see the pictures, then she will talk to you like she know you very well, to the point that she's got a problem with you and your family and will accuse you that you stole her phone and will ask you to give it back, or else at least pay her P100 per week. LOL not me ate. Nice try! Kaso napahiya ako sobra kasi sinigawan ako ni ate sa harap ng ibang tao and they looked at me as if I really stole her phone. Hays. Sabi pa niya magtatawag siya ng kasama niya magtago daw ako, katakot your face. Guys pag maaga ko nawala siya may kasalanan ha Yun lang, ingat lang kayo.
