Pinay Dubbed as “Queen of Gold Diggers” after Taking Php25M from American BF

A Pinay is being called as “Queen of Gold Diggers” for taking Php25million from her American boyfriend. But everyone is scratching their heads in puzzlement (even Raffy Tulfo!) why she would do that when her boyfriend is so handsome, kind, rich, and generous, while she looks rather simple.

Brothers RJ Russel and Kevin Russel from Dallas, Texas went to Raffy Tulfo in Action to ask for help against Adora Ramos, RJ’s girlfriend.

According to RJ, he met Adora when they were both working in Kuwait. But after some time, he had to move to a new job in Afghanistan. Since he couldn’t bring her there, he decided to send her back to the Philippines and that he would simply support her.

Adora has four kids with her ex-husband; RJ gave her money to file for annulment, worth around Php150,000. He thought that problem was already taken care of. He would also begin sending her money so they can start a business, a sari-sari store, for him to move to the Philippines for good. But it was only recently that he discovered that she had been scamming him all along.

About 4 years ago, the IT consultant sent a huge amount of money to Adora. At the time, she claimed that there’s someone dealing them a 9-hectare farm for Php2.75 million. It was near the Php3-million house that he bought for her and her family in La Union.

Thinking that they are getting a good deal out of the transaction, RJ first sent Adora $120,000 (Php6 million) to cover the farm, the sari-sari store, and the inventory for the business they decided to put up 4 years ago.

Over the years, he would find properties adjacent or near the farm that they could buy to grow their business. He would transfer the money to Adora’s account so she could take care of the transactions. When he found out that she actually bought no farm and they didn’t have any land, despite the many ‘transactions’ they had supposedly done with the dealers, he was rather shocked.

They also had gold and silver coins worth $30,000 (Php1.5 million), but he found that nothing was left in the safe where he left them. But he’s puzzled over what she might have done with the money, because she doesn’t even have flashy cars or other properties, except for their Php3-million house.

But the house burned to the ground, nearly including RJ, Adora, and Adora’s four kids – and everything in it. Later, RJ realized that it might be possible it was Adora who caused the house to catch fire.

As the nightmare unfolded, RF asked his bank how much he had sent Adora – and was shocked to learn that he already sent her a total of $510,000 (Php25.8 million)! But he’s left with no property, no business, and not much money left in Adora’s bank.

Annulment in the Philippines

Under Article 45 of the Philippine family code, a marriage can be annulled if one spouse wasn’t mentally sound at the time of the marriage or was forced into it. This might be contested, however, if the person seeking annulment continued living as husband and wife after regaining mental competence or the threat of force disappeared.

UPDATE

Here’s a sad update on Adora’s situation…

Fake Delivery Rider Tries to Scam Frequent Shopee Buyer

A scammer tried to dupe a frequent Shopee buyer for Php3,499 but he left emptyhanded after the guy noticed that the package clearly looks so fake!

Fake Delivery Rider Tries to Scam Shopee Buyer

These days, it is so easy to buy something you need and have it delivered at home. You can shop for almost anything you want even without leaving the comforts of your home – and you don’t even have to deposit the payment first, for most cases.

But the system of “cash on delivery” (COD) on many online platforms has given scammers a way to earn some quick, dishonest cash. These scammers prey on people who often make orders on these online shops and might not notice that they are paying for an order they did not make.

Netizen Jay Jazo shared the experience he had with what appears to be newbie scammers who arrived at his house carrying a package with his name written using a pentel pen. The address was incomplete, just “1200 Camba” and the amount was written out as “3499 php”.

Jay has some pending orders that he’s waiting for, yet he also knows that he doesn’t have an order worth Php3,499. Moreover, as a frequent Shopee buyer, he knows that the package doesn’t look like something you’d get from an online store. There’s no barcode or waybill on the package. Only the supposed buyer’s name was there; no information about the seller or the order number.

A bit scared, Jay quickly closed the door to inspect the item before telling the fake delivery rider that he doesn’t have an order. After the guy left, they followed him and saw that he was just walking! There’s a rider who fetched him several meters away from the house, but the two appeared to have realized that the fake rider was being followed.

Jay shared the experience as warning to others so they won’t fall for this kind of modus operandi.

Fake Package Delivery Scam

Don’t be fooled by the fake package delivery scam. Here’s what you can do:

  • Always track your packages from online shops.
  • Don’t give out personal information to callers, even if they sound like a real delivery rider.
  • Check the packaging for clues. Real orders have a proper waybill, with information like your complete name, address, and phone number.
  • Tell family members or other housemates to never pay for orders delivered when you’re not around, unless you tell them beforehand or if they could confirm it with your first.

Concerned Citizens Break Car’s Glass to Save Two Kids Left by Parents

Two kids were rescued from a hot car after concerned citizens broke the glass to save their lives. The two young children were left by their parents inside the car which was turned off and locked.

Kids Left in Hot Car by Parents

There are so many people who are not aware of the dangers of leaving children or pets inside a locked car with the air conditioning turned off and the windows closed. Not everyone is aware how hot it can quickly become inside that car, even if the weather isn’t too hot.

So, just imagine how hot it could become and how much oxygen will be left inside the vehicle on a very hot day!

In a video shared by Philippines CCTV & DASH CAM Spotted, several concerned citizens could be seen surrounding a Suzuki Ertiga that’s parked near business establishments at a still undisclosed location. It turned out that some passersby noticed the small kids inside the car and were concerned over their condition inside the locked vehicle.

The concerned citizens could be heard speaking in Visayan, telling each other that the best course of action is to break the car’s glass because doing it without damage to the vehicle was taking them a very long time. The kids inside could be seen looking weak and sweaty.

Acting as fast as they could to save the children, they broke the glass window at the driver’s seat. With the window broken, they rushed to remove the car seat of the baby and moved it inside an air-conditioned establishment near where the car was parked.

Another person picked up the elder sister, still a toddler, and also brought her to the establishment where they were both given water.

The video did not show what happened next or how the parents reacted once they learned what these concerned citizens happened. But everyone is furious at the irresponsible parents and thankful that the kids were safe.

What Happens to Kids in a Hot Car?

Kids’ bodies actually heat up more quickly, about 5x, than adult’s bodies. When left in a hot car, kids’ major organs could begin to shutdown at 40 C. You could easily lose the child as temperatures rise to 41.5 C!

Top Advantages of Using Solar Power at Home

Just like other sources of energy, solar power has its own sets of advantages and disadvantages. But even if the costs are usually high in putting it up, there is a great return on investment and you could actually save a lot of money in the long run.

Here are some of the top advantages of using solar power at home.

Lower or Eliminate Your Electricity Bills

Depending on what system you are planning to set up on your roof and the actual usage, you could either lower or eliminate your electricity bills. It is possible that you won’t generate 100% of the electricity you need but you’ll certainly see a huge slash from your monthly bills.

Power Even on Brownouts

Not all solar power systems work this way because there are those that are still connected/tied to the power company and doesn’t store the electricity produced during the day. But if you truly want to save money and have power even on brownouts, get the one with batteries. It costs higher but will be more useful in the long run.

Harness the Power of the Sun, Save the Environment

According to SolarGain, installing a 1kW solar power system helps reduce your carbon footprint and prevents the release of 1.5 tonnes of carbon a year. This sustainable system lets you harness the power of the sun and help save the environment.

Great Investment

Most suppliers offer a warranty for 20 to 25 years on your solar power system. This makes it a great investment for your home. Moreover, having solar power adds value to your home.

In some places, the government offers a subsidy or tax breaks or even cashback options for those who set up solar power at home. Take advantage of such offers if available in your area.

Incentives may actually go away and it may not actually pay to wait for too long,” says Vikram Aggarwal, CEO of EnergySage.
