Pinay Pretends to Be a Single Mom, Receives Php292k from Swedish National

A Swedish national has sought the help of Raffy Tulfo in Action after finding out that his Pinay girlfriend had only been pretending to be a single mom – and he had sent her over Php292k in the course of their relationship. He now wants to get his money back.

Peter Ola Michael Gradert is a 53-year-old plumber in Kristianstad, Sweden. He had been in a relationship with Eva Llanto Jusay, a 34-year-old housewife from San Fernando, Cebu.

The Swedish national had no idea that Eva was actually just pretending to be a single mom with one child. He would send her money to pay for her apartment, buy milk for her baby, and other day-to-day needs as she told him she could not find a job due to her baby.

After a year and a half of being in a long distance relationship, Peter flew to the Philippines to meet with Eva. He planned on staying for a month and, perhaps, get married with Eva. He was surprised when Eva refused to meet with him even when he was already in the Philippines.

After asking around and doing research, Peter was surprised to learn that Eva was married and had two children. The reason she can’t let him stay at the apartment he had been paying for is that she actually shares it with her husband!

With no one in the Philippines to ask for help from, Peter was directed by some kind people to go to Raffy Tulfo. He made the right choice. At the station, the veteran broadcaster was able to speak with Eva’s husband who had only known about her relationship with Peter that week, he claimed.

The husband was able to find Php60,000 he borrowed from other people to pay Peter that day. But the rest of the money still needs to be collected. Tulfo’s team is flying to Cebu to meet with the couple…

Help Pours in for Bread Vendor Caught by Cops for Having No Driver’s License

His wife recently gave birth to their baby; thus, one bread vendor woke up extra early to bring his goods around the town in Sibulan, Negros Oriental in central Philippines. But he was among the many who were caught for driving with no driver’s license.

Because he didn’t have a license, the Philippine National Police (PNP) Highway Patrol Group (HPG) impounded his motorcycle.

With just Php200 in sales and still a lot of bread in his modified motorcycle, 48-year-old Ruel Leong could not help but cry as he tried to plead for consideration from the HPG. But the cops wanted to set an example to everyone by upholding the law. This led to a heated debate over law and compassion on local social media pages.

With no means to sell his bread because the motorcycle was impounded, Manong Ruel could only cry as he watched the HPG wheel his ride away.

Local radio station DYWC RMN DGTE (DYWC Dumaguete) shared photos of Manong Ruel, encouraging people to buy his bread. The goods were brought to PNP Sibulan – and many people arrived to help the old man!

And while many helped, there were also those who debated over whether it was right for the cops to take his motorcycle. After all, this could lead to loss of income for the next days, probably even months!

Considering how high the penalties are for violations like not wearing a helmet and not having a driver’s license, Manong Ruel didn’t have the means to get his motorcycle back. Moreover, he needs to have a driver’s license before he could get the motorcycle.

Enter Jhae Calma, a member of Charity Riders from Mindanao. The group heard of Manong Ruel’s plight and expressed willingness to help. Not only will they shoulder the fees that the old vendor needs to pay in the violations he committed, they will also help him get a license!

As netizen Jeffrey T Marabolas put it:

Two great points:

A police enforcing a law without exemption.

Hope in humanity restored thru those who offered help.

What is Compassion?

Compassion is the feeling of sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others.

Foreigner Cleans Up Popular Boulevard in Southern Philippines

It is so sad that a lot of Filipinos lack discipline and don’t really care about the environment. This leads to canals and streets getting clogged up by various garbage that were carelessly thrown away. Of course, many of the garbage eventually find their way to the rivers and seas, making the beaches dirty and the seas polluted.

Recently, a foreigner was spotted cleaning up a popular boulevard in Southern Philippines, leading many people to express their admiration at his actions and sadness that many Filipinos don’t care about cleaning up our own country.

Jovi Mira shared pictures taken at the boulevard of Dipolog City. According to Mira, he saw the foreigner cleaning up the beach. With his shirt and footwear off, the foreigner whom Mira identified as Simo Aaltonen from Finland wore shorts to best clean up the beach and reach the dirty parts kissed by the seawater.

Based on the trash piles Aaltonen placed on the boulevard’s seawall, it was clear that the beach was dirty with varied garbage. There are plenty of plastic bags, water and softdrinks plastic bottles, glass bottles, and even slippers, shoes, and a shoulder bag!

The foreigner did not mind getting wet and dirty on that beach, because he cared enough for the environment to clean it up.

He doesn’t even have to do this, technically, as he is a visitor to this country and this is not his trash! Yet he shows everyone that it is important for us to care about the environment because this is our planet – and we have nowhere to go to if it gets filled entirely of trash.

In his early morning cleanup, the foreigner was able to gather several sacks of trash. This earned him much praise from netizens who wished that everyone would do their share to help save the environment and keep our planet clean.

Wife Finds Job as Construction Worker after OFW Didn’t Send Support Because of New Family

They were supposed to have a better life after her husband went to Qatar to work as foreman, but their family was broken when the guy found a new woman and had a child with her; this left the wife to find various odd jobs, including working as construction worker!

Left with no choice, Rowena Reyes went to Raffy Tulfo in Action to seek help against her overseas Filipino worker (OFW) husband, Rommel Reyes.

Accompanied by her only child, Shane who is still 13 years old, Rowena told Tulfo about the hardships they faced after her husband went to Qatar. Instead of having a better life, they experienced a bitter one because Rommel claimed he was nabbed for selling drinks.

He also claims he’s a TNT in Qatar; thus, he is unable to send money to his family. Taking pity on her husband, Rowena found lots of odd jobs and even became a laborer, a construction worker! Shane would also be absent from school from time to time so she could help her mother when she is hired as laundrywoman.

There were times when Rowena and Shane would share just a piece of lumpia for lunch, so they have money to go to church and pray for Rommel’s safety. But it turned out he’s not sending support because he already has a new family – and even has a child whose birth certificate bears his name!

With this hard evidence against her husband, Rowena went to Tulfo for help. But Rommel said she should be ashamed of herself; Tulfo disagreed, telling the OFW that Rowena becoming a construction worker is not something she should be ashamed of – it’s something he should be ashamed of, because his wife had to do this due to his actions.

Yung mukha mo singtigas ng semento, singkapal ng bakal,” Tulfo told him.

Rowena is determined to file a case. Tulfo also offered the mother and daughter capital for their sari-sari store so Shane no longer has to be absent from school.

Here’s their story:
