Globe responds to GCash scams

February 18, 2009 at 12:47 am 79 comments

The last two weeks have been busy for me at my day job that I didn’t find the time to update Pinay and Money. This week is no different as I am still swamped with meetings but I tried to make time to update the blog.

If you are an eBay member like me, you might know someone who has been scammed by bogus sellers. And because eBay Philippines is still in its toddler stage, the auction site still lacks many security features that can go after bogus sellers. In one of the discussions I followed in eBay’s discussion board, eBay member lost_serafin posted that Globe has issued an advisory for those who have been scammed via its GCash facility. This is the email that lost_serafin received from Globe’s Customer Service:

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Due to legal issues, there is a specific process we follow for G-cash complaints. For proper handling of such complaints, fill out the attached Gcash complaint form. Please accomplish 2 copies of the form (one for the business center; one for the complainant). Submit one copy to any Globe Business center. Have the other copy notarized and return it to the business center within 48 hours from the date of complaint or the next business day if the complaint was filed on a weekend or a holiday.

You shall also be asked to present the following:

a.) valid ID
b.) G-Cash Acknowledgement receipt (GAR)
c.) G-Cash Service Form (GSF)
d.) Official receipt (if applicable)
e.) G-Cash SMS confirmation (for P2P transactions)

The business center shall then validate the contested transaction and shall do the necessary actions. Thank you.


Jenna Babasa
Globe Customer Service

This is the GCash Complaint Form that you can fill out if you paid a seller via GCash and that seller happened to be a scammer (download form).

Thank you to lost_serafin for emailing me the form. We hope this is a start for the eBay community to weed out scammers.

    Sana ma trace nila yung scammer. I think fake names at address din yung ginamit sa Gcash. Wah! Buti nalang di pa ako na scascam sa ebay, katakot ~_~

  • 2. pinayandmoney  |  February 26, 2009 at 1:53 am

    i agree. it’s so easy to open a gcash account and the last time i checked, globe doesn’t require IDs to register. a simple text message can allow anyone to open a gcash account, regardless whether his personal details are correct or not.

  • 3. Holly Ivy  |  March 6, 2009 at 2:32 pm

    nagcomplain nko dati..i even submitted a police report and complaint letter that had been notorized but then hanggang ngayon wala pa din akong refund..its been 4 months na..haay..

  • 4. pinayandmoney  |  March 6, 2009 at 3:27 pm

    i’m sorry to hear that holly ivy. i really, really hope there will be stricter measures to penalize scammers.

  • 5. athena maquinay  |  March 8, 2009 at 8:54 pm

    I’ve been scammed in multiply few months ago thru gcash.can i still file my case so u could help me?it was quite a big amount i transacted.thanks!

  • 6. pinayandmoney  |  March 9, 2009 at 8:08 am

    i’m not sure but you can still probably file a case with globe if you have the necessary documents.

  • 7. jhoy catameo  |  March 22, 2009 at 5:18 pm

    I sent money thru gcash last March 19, 2009 amounting to P2270.00 for a specific item. I was surprised because the person that I sent the money to replied that she already shipped the item already. But the next day I asked her the tracking number but she didnt even bother to reply at all. And now she was unreachable and contactable at all. So goodbye P2270.00. i know its my fault that I trusted the person. But this has to stop. I just wanted to share this and give them a feedback that PLEASE give us protection…..mostly to buyers and sellers who just wanted to earn extra money and buy stuff online for convenience…..Gcash is very convenient to send money and to receive money…..i told sa customer service ng globe na sana there is a way that you could do for us kasi we are using your service mainly regarding money…..i hope they could do something about it….it is really scary!!

  • 8. scammed???  |  May 20, 2009 at 4:56 pm

    OMG!!! i remitted just 2 days ago!!! and now!! the whole day no package arrived and i havent received the unit the i just settled through phone!! im so stupid!! but F**K those who scam!!!!! thanks for this post!!!

    also, please help.

    I only sent messages to 2 people through ebay’s “ask seller a question” button, then one replied and is in constant communication with me, the other one is the one im feeling is a scammer… but they both texted me after I have just sent them the message from ebay. I requested through ebay’s “request seller’s contact info” and lo and behold!!! its a different name and number? how could this happen? how did this scammer know that I contacted the seller through question, and even know what item im looking for… now im so confused…..

  • 9. pinayandmoney  |  May 21, 2009 at 3:22 am

    how many feedbacks does the seller have? did you transact outside ebay or the auction hasn’t ended yet when you paid? what’s the username?

    please visit our new home at

  • 10. scammed!!!  |  May 21, 2009 at 11:28 am

    Hello pinayandmoney…

    3rd day as of payment and still no response… by this time i have already concluded that I have been scammed (see the change in my username).

    I think i already know what happened since I feel that reporting this wouldnt help me whatsoever (what do you guys think?should i report to gcash and fill up the form? report to ebay?) anyway… it sucks… really.. its my first time to be scammed…im an occassional buyer and seller of items and i’ve always looked at ebay, tipidpc, bidshot and all the rest for selling or buying items apart from going to specialty places like greenhiills etc…. i do hope all responsible ebayers, auctioners and all that take action in conserving the integrity of these sites….. because as you can see, and im sure many who were scammed feels this too.. we are dismayed, disappointed call it what you may…im sure its all negative…..

    so pinayandmoney going back, sorry for the outburst of sentiment….. this is what happened… i saw an item (call it item P) Item P normally sells at 8k and i saw the starting bid at P5k…. then i sent a message to the seller…

    THE MISTAKE THAT I HAD IS MY SIDE OF VERIFYING THE SELLER…. because…because…because….. when i sent the message to the seller through (ask seller a question) I THINK, IT WAS AUTOMATICALLY POSTED IN THE ITEMS LISTING and I mistakenly gave my number….

    If my paranoid instincts are true and correct… (which is now clearly becoming true) the scammer so my post, so my number, so how interested i was in buying Item P, and texted my minutes after i sent the messaged through ebay….

    now i assumed it was the same seller….. and the Freaging smart scammer whose soul is burning for a little amount of P5.5k (you will rot in hell scammer…so cheap…. so cheap…. call me stupid but bahala na si Lord sayo, and if also the police will help) the smart scammer is constantly watching the item and I thought he/she was the seller (all.good.finds – im sorry for disturbing, but i hope u responded to my message through text right away,it would’ve helped)

    and so…. i was mistaken… i did not verify,…. i sent the money through gcash…. This is an Outside Ebay transaction…so no help in reporting to ebay…….

    i dont know if he/she (the scammer has a username but please be warned of these numbers….

    Number i contacted Erick versoza – 09062179348 (if you are not a scammer prove it) from 1302 madison bdlg taft (he claims this was his add when he was still a student….

    and also Edwin Versoza 09278869734..this is his brother, i remmited the gcash payment here…

    and oh by the way!!! F**K you globe/gCASH FOR not personalizing your gcash facility!! stupid because this is money transfer facility! CONGRATULATIONS, YOU HAVE JUST CREATED THE PERFECT GROUND FOR SCAMMERS AND THIEVES to play around with us measly innocent human beings!!!!! kudos to Smart for thinking Ahead with their smart money!!!

    SO there… be warned… i am now officially scammed!!!

    Thanks F*ck*ng scammers for making my ebaying very interesting… i wont hope that you rot in hell… you are rotting in hell….

    thanks pinayandmoney for inquiring and for the concern!! more power to ebayers but i hope!!! we make a move otherwise…. we can risk the integrity, security, and even lose our market!!!!

    Let’s all wake up! neighbor’s watch? i dont know!!! but lets all protect our means of trading!!!

    “so” is actually “saw”… sorry im infuriated right now….

  • 12. noodle  |  June 3, 2009 at 1:13 am

    i may have been scammed too =( i paid for an item 2 days ago and still havent received anything. i hope globe will be able to retrieve my payment…

  • 13. Rose Anne  |  June 18, 2009 at 9:04 am

    eh pano pag nakuha na ung pera sa gcash? may pagasa pa bang mabalik sayo ung pera?

  • 14. pinayandmoney  |  June 19, 2009 at 4:37 am

    rose ann, i doubt na mababalik sa iyo yung money. sorry. you can try asking globe.

  • 15. Rose Anne  |  June 19, 2009 at 8:44 am

    tumawag na nga po ako sa globe, pinpatrace ko ung number na pinangtxt nya sa akin, pero wala daw silang ganun… di na nga yata mababalik money ko, ok lng sana di na mabalik pero gusto ko mahuli na siya para wala na siyang maloko tulad nung mga nagcomment dito..

  • 16. pinayandmoney  |  June 20, 2009 at 1:00 am

    i assume the # was prepaid? if you made an over-the-counter payment, i think you can use to file a report at NBI.

  • 17. Rose Anne  |  June 24, 2009 at 8:04 am

    hi po!!!

    nabaik na po ung pera sa akin..

    tnx for advices =)

  • 18. pinayandmoney  |  June 24, 2009 at 12:52 pm

    hi, rose anne. that’s great! please share how you were able to get your money so you can inspire others and give them hope.

  • 19. Khristel  |  July 18, 2009 at 10:42 am

    hello there!

    i was also scammed thru gcash.
    i purchased an item online.
    Paid the amount through gcash.
    At first, the transaction seems okay.
    After the date of the supposed to be delivery date, she told me that the shipment was delayed.
    SO, i said it’s ok.
    After 2 days, i called her up. It rang, but no one answered. After that, i tried to call again but it can no longer be reached.

    Here is her number: 09278643470

    I wish there’s a way to protect consumers from these kind of transactions.

  • 20. antifraud99  |  July 29, 2009 at 11:01 am

    Hi guys I have a tip to all buyers who use GCash. BEFORE you send GCash to your seller, try to visit the neareast Globe Buisness Center or call the GCash hotline (2882 for globe/TM cellphone or (02)7392882 for landline) and ask the CSR if the seller’s GCASH registered number is KYC validated in their system. KYC stands for Know Your Customer. If yes, this means your seller’s identity is already established by Globe, the chances of fraud/scam is minimal. However, if your seller’s GCASH account is not yet KYC validated, chances of fraud/scam is HIGH.

  • 21. pinayandmoney  |  July 29, 2009 at 1:46 pm

    antifraud, thanks for the advice. i hope this helps.

  • 22. maan  |  August 22, 2009 at 10:21 am

  • 23. pinayandmoney  |  August 23, 2009 at 1:31 am

    maan, ask globe for the details.

  • 24. jen123  |  September 27, 2009 at 2:57 pm

    can u pls help me get back the money?if theres any way?

  • 25. mico  |  October 11, 2009 at 7:54 am

    sana maka tulong po to sa lahat.

    i’m new to this whole online buying thing so i don’t have much experience with online transactions. partly na rin kasi natatakot akong manakawan (just like anyone else). the only transaction i’ve considered so far is buying some anti-virus license online and luckily i didn’t encounter any problems with my credit card afterwards.

    anyways, i’m doing a bit of research on the whole gcash process before i get into it; that’s why i stumbled upon this site among others. mukhang madami dami ngang nananakawan through gcash.

    prior to this i landed that “gcash click!” site. read through it a bit and it seems like a good system. i didn’t go through the details but what i thought was interesting is that this gcash service is tied up with a dedicated courier and that before your money get’s released (to the seller) the delivery guy will have to confirm acceptance of the buyer’s receipt of the item. so parang COD lumalabas. bagong racket yata to ng Globe e. i haven’t been able to find much about this in discussions.

    i just thought i’d share this bit of info to those who use GCash and hopefully someone can confirm if it is indeed a good system.

    hope this helps.


  • 26. pinayandmoney  |  October 13, 2009 at 4:49 am

    thanks for visiting the site, mico. initially, i think few people use gclick. delbros, the courier partner of gclick, is not yet reliable in delivering the items. based on initial feedback, it takes at least three days for an item to be delivered within the country. so medyo hindi pa siya ginagamit ng online sellers. but i think if gclick uses other couriers, there’s hope for us.

  • 27. mico  |  October 21, 2009 at 10:28 am


    Hi Rochelle, sorry to be so inquisitive, just hoping to get more insight on things. 🙂

    is delbros not reliable just because of the 3 day delivery time? other than that, does gclick have any other drawbacks? aside from the relatively higher shipping cost which i noticed. but considering the security and convenience it can provide, isn’t it a good enough option?

    are there any other services out in the market similar to gclick?

    thanks Rochelle, hope you don’t mind my asking. 🙂


  • 28. pinayandmoney  |  October 22, 2009 at 1:13 am

    hi, mico. so far, based on the feedbacks for glick, that’s the only major concern–using delbros as partner. but in terms of security, parang wala pa akong nakikita. i’d be sure to post something here pag may nadinig ako.

    so far, the delivery time lang of delbros ang issue. for online sellers kasi, critical yung delivery period because buyers tend to get annoyed pag matagal nadeliver sa kanila yung items. immediate na naiisip nila is baka nascam sila. but i do hope that gclick starts including other couriers soon.

  • 29. mico  |  October 22, 2009 at 1:28 am

    Thanks Rochelle!

    Sana nga. gclick seems promising.

    Salamat ulit!

  • 30. Neo  |  November 20, 2009 at 8:37 am

    Hi guys, the three day minimum delivery of delbros for gcash click is not totally true. Why? well based on my experience, the item that I bought thru gcash click was delivered to me on day 2. Yes day 2 as in… Well, I guess this is also true if the seller and buyer is within the same city or within Metro Manila. By the way, for those who do not know the profile of delbros, well, they are also the accredited courier of US embassy in delivering passports and Visas.

  • 31. ange  |  November 23, 2009 at 11:29 am

    i bought an item on ebay worth almost 5k. the user has no feedback yet coz he said he was just there to have the item RUSH sold. it was a great bargain so i contacted him. i thought maybe he wasn’t a scammer because he was answering questions and he also displayed some member Q & A’s regarding the item, he even said there ” hindi po ako scammer” as an inquiry was made if he could do meet-ups kasi natatakot na ma scam yung nagtanong.

    few minutes when bidding was about to end, i placed my bid and asked a question regarding the item. i wasn’t expecting for him to respond so quickly because it thought he might be offline. but to my surprise, he answered my ebay msgs. (was he like waiting for his prey or something?) i won, and we exchanged conatact details, but he said that it would be better of i send payment within the day (thu) thru gcash because he doesn’t ship on weekends. so i even made an effort to go to the not-so-near gcash outlet to send payment. i texted him afterwards, and it really took him a long time to respond, keso “bawal daw phone habang shift nya so iniiwan nya sa locker”. hindi ko na gets but i was happy that he responded. he didnt respond thru text since then ever, but thru an ebay msg, he sent a msg na finished sending package already, will text u tracking number later kasi naiwan nanaman daw phone. nagduda na ako kasi kung naisend na nya package (air21 raw) bkit di nya na lng dinala yung rcpt and sent me the tracking num thru email. since then, wala na akong natanggap na msgs, user cannot be reached sa phone. kakainis pang magantay ng 10th day since payment para lng makafile ng case sa ebay.

    its been three days already. nanghihinayang talaga ako. nasilaw sa bargain. hayssss…nakakainis.

    pwede ko ho bang malaman kung naincash na ng rcpt ang na send ko na money? or if naitransfer ba sa ibang accnt? kasi hindi ko na alam anung use ng transaction id sa gcash rcpt eh. tinanong ko pa yung teller anung mas safer way to pay, sms? or over the counter? hindi nya nasagot, tinanong niya lng “first time mo magbayad sa online?” i think even the employees know its risky to deal online.

    ang pinakaayaw ko lng, ang pinaexpect ako, naloka na ako sa kakaisip anung nangyari sa package ko, yun pala nascam ako.

  • 32. pinayandmoney  |  November 29, 2009 at 12:15 am

    @neo, thanks for visiting the site. actually, the three-day delivery time of delbros is true. this has been extensively discussed in ebay. but i guess since gclick is trying to improve its service, the delivery time has been cut.

    @ange, you should ask globe your questions. globe is the only one who can answer your inquiries. but this should serve as a lesson to you. you should never, ever bid on ebay from sellers who have no or very few feedbacks. if anything, you should ask to meet up instead of sending the money via gcash. i hope you find a resolution for this.

  • 33. kgp  |  December 27, 2009 at 5:12 am

    Ako ata pinamalaki ang nascam – 29,250 sa ebay. Please be careful of this name:

    I will be reporting to the National Bureau of investigation tomorrow.

    Her ebay account mlindchang23 has been removed by ebay today.

    Mukhang marami kami.

    She was convincing. 100% ang rating. Ebay member since early this year.

    I also strongly recommend not buying from especially through GCash.

  • 34. kgp  |  December 27, 2009 at 5:17 am

    Actually kahit hindi GCash ang mode of payment – basta or anywhere online eh delikado. I suggest paypal but still not an assurance na hindi kayo mascam.

    Good luck everyone!
    Wag papaloko tulad ko. I can sleep over it. Some cannot.

  • 35. pinayandmoney  |  December 27, 2009 at 7:44 am

    kgp, saw your post in ebay din. i’m so sorry this happened to you. as a general rule, you should never buy big-ticket items online. it’s hard to entrust big amounts to someone you don’t know. i hope you find good results regarding this.

  • 36. mhylz  |  April 8, 2010 at 10:38 am

    ok. maybe i am the latest victim.. i bought a phone from ebay amounting to P6500.. i bought the phone from a “Glezel Quimpo” of Bacolod City. Our communication was consistent at first but after I paid her last monday, nka-off na phone nya. Here’s my story: Monday afternoon after paying her via Gcash, she texted me saying cut-off na kya she’ll just ship the unit the next day. Tuesday morning, she told me she asked her husband to ship it before going to work. Will text me later for the tracking number coz her husband doesn’t reply to her texts. Tuesday noon, start ng off phone nya. I emailed her on the email address she used when she send the pics of the phone. She replied, she’s out looking for her husband kasi hindi pa raw umuuwi since he sent the unit. She also said, “onting trust lang po”. That’s the exact words she used. Wednesday, I checked her ebay account and saw that she posted a high-end phone which just ended yesterday. She posted the number that she used for gcash. What I would do is to trace where she encashed the money from her gcash.

    I am very frustrated! I’ve been buying and selling stuff from ebay for 2 years now and this is the first time I was scammed!

  • 37. mhylz  |  April 8, 2010 at 10:40 am

    By the way, the number that she’s using is 09267112143…And beware of this number as well 09396704633

  • 38. candylicious22  |  April 20, 2010 at 2:16 am

    shucks!! i have the exact situation with you MHYLZ.. GLEZEL QUIMPO from Bacolod City, screw you! i won this n5800 from this glezel quimpo on EBAY.PH then i’ve paid the won unit amounting to P7,700 with shipping fee. At first we had a good communication that puts me somehow at ease but after a while that i’ve sent the money via GCASH her phone was already turned off when i called. DARN. i tried going to NTC but unfortunately they said that it is impossible to track it due to that its only a prepaid and that it is so easy to change sim nowadays. aaaW.

  • 39. candylicious22  |  April 20, 2010 at 2:50 am

    mhylz, if you want we can together file a case at NBI for at least caught this Glezel Quimpo.. JUSTICE!!!!! waaaaaaaaahh

  • 41. mob  |  May 5, 2010 at 9:57 am

    hi, I would like to know how it is possible to have a gcash account without a KYC validated? How long does it take to Gcash to validate the KYC? Because, there are supposed to know their customers in order to avoid scams of that kind.

  • 42. emoterana  |  May 17, 2010 at 2:57 am

    hi guys! i was also been scammed last May 2 in by jjjeannn or Norie Mondejar / Jean Gutierez from Dipolog City.. Pucha after i send the payment via GCash hindi na sha mkontact!

    Mabbalik pa ung pera ko if i file a case sa Globe????

    PLSSS Give Me Advice..

  • 43. Kai  |  May 17, 2010 at 10:08 am

    emoterana: Hi! I went to Globe today! They can only retrieve your money 2 days after your payment unfortunately!! (>___<) However you can still report your case, which is what I did since my P3, 300 is now gone…I really hope they create a better system of retrieving our money and finding the scammer somehow…SHIT this sucks.

  • 44. scammersgotohell  |  June 3, 2010 at 5:29 am

    I just realized I was scammed yesterday (actually may denial pa). Goodbye, 6680 (nanghingi pa ng shipping fee ang gago!)

    Shocks!!! muntik na kong maloko ng Glezel Quimpo na yan!!

    i bought an item to her pero di pa po ako nagbabayad kasi po parang hesitant ako kasi she didnt update me.. tama pala ang kutob ko!!!! i knew it!!! eto po yung conversation po namin thru email lang:

    Me: (nung sat) Hi sis.. im about to send po sana ng gcash
    kaninang mga before lunch, kaya lang po di ko po
    kayo makontak kanina thru your globe and sun
    number.. tinatawagan ko po kayo kanina pero wala
    pong sumasagot.. ring lang po ng ring.. kaya po di
    na muna ako nagsend ng gcash kasi po baka po may
    problema.. ( im thinking baka nasnatch yung phone nya kaya walang sumasagot sa calls ko)

    ebay seller: (sunday) Sis, di ba you have na my bank acoount and everythiing? what is the call for? ( ang taray nya noh?!)

    Me: (sunday) Pasensya na po sis kung naistorbo ko po kayo sa
    mga calls ko kahapon.. im just confirming sis if u

    gcash to my sellers, i always text them before i

    seller that im about to pay.. pasensya na po

    Sa monday before lunch nalang po ako magbayad.. 🙂
    will i receive the package sis the next day? wala
    po kasi akong klase ng tuesday and im able to
    receive the package the whole day..thanks sis.. 🙂

    > til now wala pa pong reply sakin thru email and text..tinext ko rin po siya kahapon pero no reply din.. kaya balak ko pong wag munang magbayad ng gcash sa kanya.. kaya lang po baka lagyan niya po ako ng negative feedback sa ebay.. it’s my first time po kasi na bumili thru ebay.. usually thru multiply po ako nagpupurchase..

    > then i decided to search the name “Glezel Quimpo” just by now, and then i find this site.. Nagulat ako.. scammer nga sya.. i just did research.. i found out na nagtake siya ng nurse licensure exam last Nov 29 & 30, 2009… eto yung whole name nya: 11.QUIMPO GLEZEL MAE HERMO.. Grabe talaga..

    > nagbago na rin sya ng number as for the post # 37 from Ms. mhylz.. eto po current bank account nya and gcash details:

  • 47. OMG  |  August 13, 2010 at 6:29 am

    nakakainis! ako pa ngayon ang may atraso.. ebay send me a message:

    “eBay opened an unpaid item case for sasa: Monistat Make Up Primer, because *_sasa_* either hasn’t recorded your payment or didn’t receive it yet.

    The seller needs to receive your payment no later than Aug 17, 2010 13:55:02 PHT.If the seller doesn’t receive your payment, an unpaid item will be recorded on your account and your account privileges may be limited or suspended. Remember, when you place a winning bid or click the Buy It Now button in a listing, you’ve committed to paying for that item.”

    pano ko magbabayad kung di naman nya ako inaupdate.. di nya naman sinasagot mga emails ko or text
    messages kung anu nang nangyari sa item.. baka
    pag nagbayad na ko, di nya naman isend yung
    item.. takot lang akong maloko.. and as i’ve read here, may mga nascam na sya.. thousands of pesos pa.. di na nila naclaim..

    what shall i do?

    in August 13,2010, I received a txt message from Secretary Nancy Chua, informing me that i won $40,000 during their electronic raffle draw for Pangkabuhayan OFW, according to CFPhilippines at RCBC Building Makati Manila with NCR DTI# 1054 SERIES OF 2010.DO I have to believe this? and after a few days, i received another txt message that after 72 hours starting today, August 16, 2010 my prize will be forfeited if i wont claim it, or if i would contact them. the problem is, my cellphone is onnly good at receiving text, but cant reply. and Im living in Germany. and Im not sure if this is true. if Globe can here this message please help me, because i need the money. God bless and more power! Nenita Morenings………..

  • 49. pinayandmoney  |  August 16, 2010 at 11:58 pm

    nenita, that is a scam. text scams are prevalent in the philippines. they text you that you won and they will ask you to deposit money before you can claim your prize. please don’t fall for this. don’t believe them.

  • 50. Nenita Morenings  |  August 17, 2010 at 11:41 am

    today,they send me another text message that i have to contact them or else, in 24 hours my prize will be forfeited. kawawa naman noh kung ibang OFW ang ma scam biruin mo, almost 2 million pesos ipamimigay? wow! P2 million in a flash in just an electronic raffle draw? dapat hinihigpit yung security sa mga roaming numbers. Filipinos are very clever people and no matter how intelligent you are, SCAMMED parin yung bagsak mo.alam ko mahirap ang buhay ngayon pero hindi dapat sa ganitong paraan kumita ng pera kasi yung kawawa nadadamay . mas mabuti pang magtrabaho ka sa sariling pawis kaysa maligo sa perang hindi naman sayo.ito yung number nila +639062519824 thank you kasi kung hindi pa ako pumunta sa website na ito at hindi nabasa yung mga comments ninyo, scammed na sana ako. iba kasi yung intro sa txt. its just the same as the txt scam messages.thank you again God bless all people who fight against txt scams …………………..august17 2010

  • 52. sher  |  October 2, 2010 at 7:16 am

    mhylz and candylicious22, it seems na magagaya yata ako sa inyo. I just ordered 2 items (Skip Hop Zoo Pack Backpacks) from thesame seller. GLEZEL MAE QUIMPO. USA pre-ordered items yun from her Multiply site.

    ang difference lang natin yung isang bag na inorder ko dumating naman. ang taray pa nga nyang sumagot sa text inquiries ko eh. yung pre-order schedule nya estimated time of arrival (ETA) sept 28-29. september 23 nag post sya sa multiply site, na yung mga boxes nya is with costums pa daw. then september 27 nagpost ulit sya na 1 of the boxes nagarrived na daw, which is dito kasama yung bag na nareceive ko. so ok na yon. problem ko yung remaining order ko na nabayaran ko na yung 50% downpayment. small amount lang P675.00 which was deposited to her BPI savings account.

    kahit na small amount lang yon money parin yon and yung inconvenience na nadulot nya. wish ko lang talaga hindi nya ako nascam. kasi ipapareturn ko na lang yung 50% na nabayad ko. kaysa maghintay pa ako sa wala. bumili ako sa kasi ok naman yung testimonial/feedbacks nya sa multiply kaya nagorder ako.

    I just got scammed din 2 weeks ago by the name of Stephanie Santon with gcash acct: 09266973149

    Nireport ko na cya sa globe business center, submitted the gcash complaint form (notarized), and police report. Ang kayang gawin lng ng globe is to block the account. Pero ung makuha pa pera mo wag na umasa lalo na pag na-zero out na ung account.

    I tried asking Globe kung pede ko ba mahingi ung details kun san place/branch na-encash pero sabi nung customer service nila di raw pedeng ibigay. I know they can trace it pero hindi ko lng maintindihan kung baket ayaw nila ibigay ung details.

    Dapat responsibility ng Globe na tulungan ang customer nila na matrace ung scammer, pero hindi pala ganun… hayz

  • 56. Maricar  |  February 22, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    Hay naku! this is my first and last ebay transaction. Bakit kasi may mga scammers sa mundo. This guy named Jason Cruz from 138 Rizal Ave. San Fernando City La Union with cell # 09063118222 was selling Nokia C3 phone in Ebay. Syempre ako naman dahil cheaper sya kaysa Greenhills at sa mall, syempre I want to buy it. I went to Globe center and paid thru Gcash. Ok naman ang transactions eh. The next day wala na hindi ko na sya macontact. Nakakainis for just saving 1000Php, I lost the amount 4980 pesos. Kung nag Greenhills na lang ako hawak ko na agad yung item. Hay lesson learned. Tatandaan ko na lang ang verse sa Bible found in Matthew 5 Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you that you may become sons of your Father in heaven.

  • 57. Linda Stevens  |  March 23, 2011 at 5:21 am

    DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER, SHE IS A SCAMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Paid her via gcash for a multiply layout and after I paid she stopped contacting me.

    her name : JENNY VILLAMOR

  • 58. irene  |  April 4, 2011 at 3:01 am

    theres no safe on internet buying..especially kung sa private person kayo bibili..incase naman sa globe i dont think they could help kase masyadong malawak na ang fraud especially sa pilipinas lalo pang napakadaling bumili at magpalit ng sim, once u make a deal to a private individual i dont think na sagutin pa yun ng Gcash kaw na ang may sagutin sa action na ginawa mo, although maraming mabuting naitutulong ang gcash sa ibang bagay like sending money to your love once and family paying bills etc..mas makakabuti na gamitin mo lang ang gcash sa alam mong safe gamitin at kilala mo ngayn kung dimo kilala yung tao mas mainam na wag na lang..i dont advice buying through the net , its 50/50 risky…although hassle free sya kung bibili through the net diba ndi mtrabaho at madali at walang effort kaso nga risky cya, siguro magtry ka don sa reputalbe company store online ndi sa individual lang siguro masasabi ko

  • 59. Oddyx  |  April 10, 2011 at 10:55 pm

    I was scammed too!

    I had a nice communication with this seller in named Daniel Aldrin Rivera
    username: Daniel1001
    G-cash Account: 09275179870
    False Address:
    Bgy. Calungbuyan
    Candon City, Ilocos Sur

    …until I sent payment thru G-Cash

    I was looking for a cheap Blackberry Bold 9700 online and found his add. He’s claiming that it’s a sacrificial offer because he’ll be paying for his review expenses for the incoming Midwifery licensure exams. I still have his respectful and angelic messages on my phone. Here comes April 6, our payday…Early in the morning he was texting me if the transaction will pursue, I replied that he just have to wait. He was rushing me because he was absent halfday from his review classes just to be able to send the item that his selling. So I sent the money through G-cash. After he received the transaction # for the money I sent, he was so reluctant telling me that ” Kumakain pa daw sya” then I ask for the status and he replied with a fake LBC reference #. I validated the # online and found out that it was a bogus tracking #. I called 2882 and found out that the money was then transferred to another G-cash Account 09275179906.

    I filed a formal complaint Jan 7th the following day. I didn’t receive any email from Globe yet but I hope I will be able to retrieve the money I lost.

    I can’t curse this person or his loved one’s, I stayed positive and thought about even worse things that could have happened and harm me physically. I’m financially affected, but as long as I move on and strive more I could still find even more that the amount I’ve lost.

    @ Roberto Carusso: Nakatakas ka man, matakot ka na rin sa KARMA!

    I too may have been scammed on It was my first time to buy a big ticket titem from ebay and the first time i bought something to be shipped. All my other items were bought via meet ups. Beware of this seller hotgadgetsforless. Her name could either be joanne garcia or princess sandoval. We had continuous communication until i sent payment through g cash. After that she would text me excuses about the non existent tracking number. She had even positive feedbacks on ebay which i know now coulld have been faked. I am posting this so it may warn others of this scammer. This is a very painful lesson learned. But I do believe in karma. if not in this life then I’m sure in the next you will reap what you sow.

    I notice one thing though among these scammers… They’re relatively young. That is, if their identities are even true and not stolen from someone else..

    I hope globe will find a way to hold the money and verify first with the sender before releasing it to the recipient.

The contact number indicated is not even mine. I was never behind any business transaction (because I never tried going into business). Please,let’s be careful with what we are posting. I suggest identity double checking. This allegation is really offensive and defaming. My appeal to Globe Telecom.. Thank You

    I’ve been in online shopping before, and the transaction is quite well. I received my orders…
    But lately, April 30 2012, I had encountered this on line seller thru Facebook account of
    Its been up for quite sometime… and people commenting is very convincing.
    Ive never done GCash before. I used to sent my payments thru LBC padala.

    It was Php 2600, it might be small amount, but I worked for it.
    And now waiting for her replies and the shipment… but there was none 😦

    I hope someone can help us and protect us from this despicable scammers…

    I reported thru NBI and the site is not accessible now. But never got my refunds. Globe doesnt really care… all they care about is their business and never the costumer’s welfare.

    I recently made a transaction that required Gcash for the payment method. Prompt nman poh sila, and they had a rep at tipidpc for over a year. Everything went okay naman and I paid, he mailed and gave me the LBC tracking number pero when I started tracking it tru LBc, nothing is coming out. the deal was made on a saturday so I was thinking na hindi na u update nang lbc ang tracking list nila… I hope I am right and will receive my item by sunday accrding to him… anyway guys.

  • 75. Kielle  |  September 12, 2012 at 8:08 am

    Hello. Student palang po ako and I’m only 15 years old. I ordered something online na nagkakahalagang 7,000. I texted the seller and told her na I’m interested to the gadget she’s selling. She told me na kailangan ko muna daw mag’down ng 2k para sa reservation nung item and I did. Pumunta ko sa Globe center by myself at naghulog po ako ng 2k. After a few days nagtext sya sakin and she asked me kung kelan ko daw balak ifull yung payment kasi she’s migrating to Macau daw. I told her na nagiipon pa ko at baka next month ko pa makuha. Nagreply sya agad sakin at sabi nya na ang flight nya daw ay sa September 12 na. So, pumayag nako na ifull yung payment the day after that. After nang dismissal namin sa school, I went to Globe Center by myself and texted her na maghuhulog nako. She texted me back and told me na andun nadin daw sya at magc’cr lang daw muna sya. She told me na ihulog ko muna daw yung pera bago kami magmeet para sure daw sya. Unfotunately, I did. Naghulog po ako ng 5,000 sa account nya which is:

    Gcash account name: Helen Dizon Serafin
    Gcash number: 09358223713
    Address: 89 New York Street barangay Sto. Domingo Village East Cainta Rizal

    After ko maghulog I texted her and I got no reply. I waited for hours outside the Globe Center at wala pong HELEN DIZON SERAFIN na dumating. 😦 That happened to me yesterday, September11, 2012. 😥 Di po ako pumasok today kasi namamaga yung eyes ko sa kakaiyak. 😥 Sobrang nalulungkot lang po kasi ako dahil ang ayos ayos nang pakikipag usap ko sakanya tapos ganun sya. 😦 And most of all, STUDENT palang po ako at inipon ko pa po yun ever since nung christmas last year at mahirap po para sakin na makapagipon ulit ng ganun kalaking pera. There are times nga din po na di ako kumakain sa school para lang maipon yun tapos ganun pa yung nangyari. I admit naman po na kasalanan ko dahil nagtiwala ako agad. Pero ang hirap lang po talaga tanggapin na yung matagal kong pinaghirapan ay napunta sa wala. Yung mother ko po walang job tapos yung Papa ko po businessman. Yung salary po ni papa ay enough lang po para sa financial needs ng family namin and I dont think na maibibili po nila ako ng ganun. Im really desprate po talaga about that gadget eh. Gustuhin man daw po ng parents ko pero di nila ko KAYANG IBILI ng ganun. Kung gusto ko man pong makabili ng ganun ay kailangan ko pa pong PAGHIRAPAN yun ulit. 😥 PLEASE PRAY FOR ME PO.
