KAMI came across with these photos shared by Sunshine Garcia Bulahan where she narrated how they were able t arrest the fake online seller who scammed her sister.
Melody Mercado, who secretly used someone else’s name and ID was promoting different mobile phones online with only 5,000 pesos down payment. Aside from the attractive down payment, she was also good with sales techniques which really helped her convince a lot of people.
It all started when Sunshine’s sister was convinced to send 5,000php as a down payment for the mobile phone she purchased online. The night after sending Melody the money, Melody immediately deactivated her Facebook account and can no longer be reached through her mobile phone.
So Sunshine thought of also ordering online for the sake of tracing who the fake seller was. She ordered online and promised to send the down payment.
Sunshine was really smart, and she traced all Palawan remittance center in Cadiz city. Fortunately, there were only 4 Palawan branches and she asked help from Cadiz police station who then helped her in tracing the scammer.
The local police station assigned one look out per branch and waited until Melody claimed the said down payment. The funny story here was, Sunshine only sent 10 pesos. She did it for the sake of tracing Melody Mercado.
