Always be careful when going to the bank; Woman loses P.1M to robbers
Be careful when going to the bank as well as when exiting the bank. People might be watching you or better yet don’t tell a lot of people that you are going to the bank so as to not get much attention.
If this happens to you too, just give the money. Don’t fight them off. Life is more important than money. (-Ed)

A woman lost the nearly P100,000 in cash she was about to deposit in a bank plus her cell phone to two robbers on a motorcycle in Parañaque City on Wednesday afternoon.
Chinkie L. Sucatan said the money belonged to the company where she worked as a secretary. She told the police that she and her companion were about to park their motorcycle near the bank on Airport Road, Barangay (village) Baclaran, where she was to deposit the money when a man approached them, pointed a gun at her and grabbed her bag, which contained he money and her cell phone. The man then got on another motorcycle being driven by his cohort.
