Operatives from the National Bureau of Investigation arrested a woman in Tarlac. The Filipina allegedly pretends to be capable of sending Pinoy nurses to Canada in exchange for PhP500,000.
According to GMA News, the suspect was identified as Maria Girly Manaloto Quiambao. She was arrested thru an entrapment operation.
Operatives were able to retrieve from Quiambao’s possession the marked money, mobile phone, and her fake Department of Public Works and Highways Identification Card.
According to the NBI, the suspect promised a nursing job in Canada if they can pay her P500,000.
“Sinasabi niya na mayroon siyang mga contact sa Canadian Embassy. Wala po siyang permit o hindi po siya awtorisadong mag-recruit ng ating mga kababayan para ipadala sa ibang bansa,” says Ronald Abulencie, one of the NBI agent who intercepted the suspect.
Aside from the illegal recruitment issue, Quiambao will also face estafa after selling a land property but later on went away with the money.
“Ang kanilang usapan ay ihahanap niya ng bibili at nabanggit nila binenta lamang ‘yong kanilang mga lupa at hindi na ibinigay ‘yong perang bayad,” Abulencia added.
The suspect denied to issue an explanation for the cases she is facing. Other victims are also encouraged to reach to the authorities to file more cases against the suspect.
