Building your own home is like one of the greatest achievements of every OFW. To have a house to go back to could spell staying in the Philippines for good after years of struggling abroad.

However, this dream of an OFW for 15 years was all shattered when her own sibling and in-law fooled her.

Jonalyn Obnar was devastated upon knowing that her house, the fruit of her labor for 15 years abroad will only be shattered because the land where it was built was actually not theirs.

In a series of posts, Obnar related how her sibling and spouse managed to fool her. According to Obnar, they have been building their house for 3 years while working abroad together with her husband. The land where their house stands were sold by her own sibling for PhP40,000.

Thinking of finally having a house to come home to, Obnar and her husband bought it without hesitation as her sibling promised that the land is titled and can legally be sold.

Obnar started to build a house for three years, hoping that finally, they can stay in the Philippines for good. But every hard-work they put on for their house was shattered upon knowing that the house is actually forbidden to be sold as it a property of the family and it was not titled.

The decision to demolish the house before they can actually occupy it was so heartbreaking considering that they have worked so hard for so many years will just vanish. She decided to remove the house or see other people living in it.

A lot of netizens were as heart-broken as the owner of the house and some even called the help of RaffyTulfo to seek justice for the fooled OFW.
