This Foreigner Caught This Filipino Scammer On Camera While Trying To Charge Him CAD$3000 For A Drink And Food

Everybody knows that Filipinos are a happy bunch. Most foreigners you ask will tell you that they found joy in meeting Filipinos and the way they give out happiness to people they meet.

Unfortunately, not this guy. This foreigner named Kengo M on Facebook got on the bad side of Manila and was unlucky to get scammed by rude people.

This guy was able to catch the scammers on a discreet video while he was detained and was being asked for $3000 Canadian for a meal. Apart from that, according to the guy, they were able to get $1000 from him by force.

It started at the airport

According to Kengo, it all started at the airport. He asked the personnel for a metered taxi because he wanted to know how much he would be paying, but he was told that all metered taxis were outside the city so he was instructed to ride a taxi where he was charged P2000 for a 15-minute ride.

When he transferred to another taxi, which was a metered one this time, he asked about his last ride and then that’s when he found out that P2000 was too much.

The bad luck continues

On Saturday night, he rode another taxi and asked the driver to take him somewhere nice. He regretted it after that because he realized that they were all connected just to scam foreigners.

He shared the review page of the club he was brought to while saying how he regretted not Googling the place before entering.

Caught on cam

In his video, Kengo was successful in capturing the face of the scammer. He was being asked for $3000 Canadian for a drink and some food.

He knew that the scamming game was on when they notice that you are a tourist. He even shared on Facebook that they took his passport from him and was able to forcibly take $1000 from his credit card.

Update

As of this writing, there is still no update as the scamming happened on a weekend. The embassies that his friends advised him to go to are closed, so he said he will complain on Monday.

To Kengo, we are sorry you went through that. We are waiting for an update.

EDIT:

An update about this story has been posted where the management of the KTV bar in question aired their side.

Raccoons can be cute and cuddly when you see them on TV and cartoons, but model Janna Breslin had a chance to encounter the sneaky nature of raccoons when she went on a vacation to Florida.

It happened when she and her friends went to Weeki Wachee Springs in Florida. One of the resident raccoons in the area was determined to welcome their guests.

It started with the raccoon climbing up the paddle-board of the cameraman but also going on its way after.

Then, it made its way to Janna’s paddle-board. At first, Janna tried to fend it off by using her paddlers but the sneaky raccoon had other plans. It decided to hop on board and go straight to Janna’s belongings.

“I’m not happy I had to bonk him on the head, I tried to nicely keep him away from me and my things but once I felt he was not going to let go of my clothing and food, I made a split decision to make sure my belongings were safe.”

That’s when Janna hopped off the paddle-board to get ahold of her belongings that the little raccoon was trying to steal.

She was successfully able to get her belongings back and the raccoon was seen swimming away from them. But according to Janna, they saw the same little sneaky animal an hour later and it even tried to get near them again.

“As you can see he swam away and was totally fine. We even saw him walking around an hour later and tried to come up to us again.”

Janna said that what happened is even the highlight of her Florida trip. She shared a clip of the incident on her YouTube channel.

“I guess you could say I’m protective over my food, I still can’t believe that actually happened!!! Yesterday was my first encounter with a wild and very curious raccoon,”

In the Philippines, working day and night may not be able to put food on the table on the daily basis, that is why many citizens take extra work to be able to sustain a good life for their families. This does not exclude this Uber driver who spent the night driving for passengers who witnessed him slowly doze off– while driving!

Allan Yumul Jr. is one of the two passengers who booked Wilbert as their Uber driver from Manila to Pasig, which is an hour away, without traffic. Allan was observing the driver because he was driving at a low speed, and kept on taking deep breaths in between. Later on, he pulled over and confessed that he is feeling a bit sleepy.

The Uber driver moved to the backseat after Allan offered to drive to Pasig instead. He looked really tired and didn’t care who took his car anymore. When they reached the destination, Allan told him that he can rest in his car, outside his house, so that he can drive home safely.

The passenger then shared his experience on a Facebook group called Uber Pilipinas, and wished that the driver was able to go home safely.

While on trip, I noticed medyo mabagal si Sir Uber Driver at lagi siya hinga ng malalim. Then few minutes more di na niya kinaya, he pulled over at sabi inaantok daw siya. I offered to drive us home while he sleeps in the backseat from Manila to Pasig. Pagdating sa bahay we told him it’s okay to park outside so he can rest more so he’ll be more awake before going home to Angono. Hope you get home safely, Sir Wilbert.”

The post was shared on Facebook and got more than 300 shares and almost 9,000 likes. The passenger was praised for his kind gesture while the driver was praised for his honesty and for working hard as well.

A similar thing happened a few months back when a woman took over the driver’s seat to drive herself home while the driver rests in the backseat.

“Kasinungalingan yung $3000” – KTV Management’s Side On The Viral Scam Video Involving A Canadian National

Published

By

Just this weekend, a video of a Canadian national named Kengo M on Facebook went viral. In his video, he exposed a certain Club Apeiro Entertainment and KTV Bar and the men who according to him tried to extort $3000 from him for some drink and food.

But a willing source that is connected with the bar surfaced and wanted to clear the KTV’s side. Mr. Roland Kua was informed by the KTV’s manager’s close friend about what really transpired. Kua, then went to Philippines Trends to air the management’s side.

Here in Rachfeed, we believe that there are always two sides of a coin.

The other side

According to Mr. Kua, the caption in Kengo Muhamadi’s story is a flat lie. He was not asked for $3000, in fact, looking back at the video, the man did say that the $2000-$3000 was from other customers.

So, anyway, the truth, according to Kua is that Muhamadi entered the club and asked for 6 girls to entertain him. He proceeded and ordered food and drink for all of them which reached P40,000.

But when it was time to pay, Muhamadi’s credit card was declined. This is the reason, according to Kua, why Muhamadi was brought to another room to ask him to call a family member.

This is also the reason why his passport was taken, but it was only to verify his details and it was also returned immediately.

As a proof, Kua even showed the receipt of the bill of Mr. Muhamadi.

The source also showed the passport and credit card that was used by Mr. Muhamadi.

The supposed lie

In the caption of Muhamadi’s video, it can be read that he was being forcibly asked for $3000 for some food and drink. He also mentioned in his comments that the club forcibly took $1000 from his credit card. Could that be the P40k bill? That would roughly convert to $1000 in Canada.

Save the judgment

As a final note, Kua called out to people to not pass judgment until you know both sides of the story.

“Wag sana muna tayo mag judge ng kapwa natin kung hindi natin alam totoong storya.”
