gusto ko sana humingi ng advice about this situation. As mentioned from the topic, I was scammed along with my friends, sister and her schoolmates and friends.
This happened back in December 2012, we were very overwhelmed by an offer made by one person that we don't personally know but is known only to be our co-alma mater from high school. His offer is for a buy 1 take 1 iphone 5's and itouch 5's at a VERY low price. Overwhelming as it is, my sister and her friends immediately took the offer and paid for the down payment, a week later I was informed and told my friends about it and so, we also took the offer. Unfortunately, weeks passed and the order never came until we found out that it was really a scam. Sinubukan namin na personal siyang kausapin, through sms, calls, facebook and my sister's friends even went to his place pero he can no longer be reached. Nagreply siya at the beginning only to say na "he's sorry, di naman ako masamang tao and that biktima rin ako katulad niyo" He also said na nakakatanggap daw siya ng death threats, no one ever believed him kasi most of those who took his offer are teenagers! let alone elementary students from our high school. Of course we have to tell the others that the offer was a scam and that we can no longer reach him para na lang maibalik yung bayad at wala na kaming reklamong isasampa sa kanya, pero di rin naman un nangyari dahil nagtago na nga siya dahil sa laki ng perang nawala - ung friend ng sister ko umabot sa 300,000php ang downpayment - ganun kalaki ang cost ng mga umorder nung items! Natural, yung iba nagalit at nainis sa nangyari - pera ang pinag-uusapan at mahirap yun makuha - yung iba naman nakaintindi na pare-pareho kaming biktima ng scammer. Ako naman, hinihingian ako ng bayad ng mga kaibigan ko na umorder din through me at di ko yun mababayaran dahil wala pa rin naman akong trabaho, yung ipinang-down payment ko ay galing pa sa ipon ko noong estudyante pa ako sa college.
Ang tanong ko po. Responsibilidad ko po bang magbayad sa mga dati kong kaibigan kahit na hindi ko sila pinilit na umorder? Meron bang kasong maaaring isampa sa akin dahil dun? Ano ang maari kong gamiting panlaban sakaling meron ngang isampang kaso sa akin? Maaari ba akong makulong o ipa- blotter dahil dito?
salamat po sa inyong pagtugon...
