They never stop.
A friend posted about another possible case of a modus operandi targeting motorists entering BF coming from Alabang-Zapote Road.
In his post to the Facebook group “We Are Determined To Make BF Better”, Bernard Pena narrated his story:
“Ingay kayo sa Zapote corner Concha Cruz paliko ng BF. May bumangga sa akin na duda ko nagpapanggap lang na may polio. Binangga yung passenger side ng sasakyan ko at pinatama yung ulo niya sa side mirror.
I’m 100% sure di ko siya tinamaan. Siya yung bumangga on purpose.
Also, nasa 10kph lang tako ko since paliko nga.
Ayaw tumawag ng pulis at magpa-doctor. Ang gusto cash.
Hindi ko na nakunan ng photo dahil busy defending my case. May mga witness naman at umalis na lang yung mamang naka-blue nung wala siyang nakuhang pera.”
And this happened at 8:30 in the morning.
Pena just wants people from Paranaque, Las Pinas and Muntinlupa to be aware and careful when passing through that area.
This has been a long-time modus. Another friend experienced this but in TS Cruz Subdivision in Las Pinas.
Let’s slow down in populated areas (like we really always should) or places we know that are notorious for things like this.
Also, let us not be fooled by them and enable these types of people by giving them money just so we could get on our way. Make them know that we already know this type of modus and that we will not fall victim to this and other types of illegal rackets.
Pena, as he said, was not able to take a photo but if any of you, our dear readers, should come across this man again, please feel free to submit a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org so everyone will know what he looks like.
