- Friendship is an intangible thing, very much like beauty, trust, intelligence, and all the other things we value in life
- A 'friend' may defined differently too, based on demographics and many other factors
- However, for a person to be considered as a friend, trust used to be a mandatory requirement, though the concept of trust may have been a bit compromised by the continually changing world
"For there to be betrayal, there would have to have been trust first,” says Suzanne Collins, an author.
True enough, this man seems to have put his trust on to the wrong hands, however.
In a Facebook message sent by a Herbert Panganiban Vergara to a woman named Carnilda Carpio, he detailed how he was scammed using her photos.
According to Vergara, as he was trying to recover from a broken heart, a colleague who goes by the name Lara Loraine Laurente volunteered to introduce him to her 'single' friends.
After the girl has become his girlfriend, and way after promising to marry him, he found out that he has been scammed, and the photos that he has been receiving were all 'taken' from someone else's profile.
The real owner of the photos, Carnilda Carpio, took to Facebook to lambast Laurente, and post a warning to her friends from La Salle.
The post appears like this:
She also posted a convo she had with the culprit, Lara Loraine Laurente.
In yet another post, Carpio urged Laurente to get help because apparently, Vergara was not the only one. She also discovered that her photos were being used for a long time already and with different names.
The news has circulated on social media, and netizens, including one of Laurente's former classmates could not help but react.
