The Palawan Sangguniang Panlalawigan warned Palaweños to be “suspicious” of investment schemes as it maybe be a “scam”.
Board Member Modesto Rodriguez, (2nd district) in a privilege during their regular session Tuesday believes that “the scam may have spread all over the province.”
“I am concerned that beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program may fall victim to these schemes as their poverty makes them vulnerable,” Rodriguez said.
He said that the scheme has victimized many in other parts of the country.
Board Member Roseller Pineda (1st District) said the people behind the schemes take advantage of the poverty and trust of their victims.
The SP will call for the presence next session of the National Bureau of Investigation, Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, Department of Trade and Industry and other law enforcement agencies to inquire on their monitoring of the scams to ensure that the people will not be victimized.
