According to the SEC, if any person or persons approached or contacted you via email, phone, or any other means and offered you a ridiculously high return on your “investment” after a short period of time, protect yourself by asking for the following information first.

  1. Name of the person and the company making the offer;
  2. Address of the person and the company;
  3. Landline numbers of the person and the company (mobile phone numbers are difficult to trace); and
  4. SEC registration of the company stating they are eligible to take investments

If the person refused to give those information, better not to continue dealing with them. There’s a high chance the company and the investment program are a fraud.

Some additional things to remember:

  • Investment houses and financing companies with quasi-banking (QB) license and with SEC registered securities are the only ones allowed to offer investment instruments to more than 19 investors;
  • Only SEC registered persons (brokers/dealers/salesmen) may offer or sell registered securities to the public;
  • SEC company registration in itself DOES NOT automatically grant authority to sell investment instruments such as securities, bonds, commercial papers, etc. Here is a list of companies authorized by the SEC to accept investments from the public;
  • Don’t fall for people who give you promissory notes or post-dated checks as proof of your interest earnings. Those might be fake or contain insufficient funds. Scammers use this trick to show that they are supposedly genuine and paying.

If you encountered these people, report them to the:

SEC – Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Department (SEC-CED) at Phone No. (632)724-7650 or (632)727-2267 or the National Bureau of Investigation or the local police

    I’m also a victim of JOSHUA ESPANOLA!
    6600 for the iphone 5, I was so naïve that time and mura din eh kaya go na.
    OLX un last dec.31, tried to visit the olx post pero wala na deleted na then matapang din to kasi may picture din xa sa fb. After ko ideposit ang money and texted him the confirmation he actually said (ok wait) then when I asked what time will u ship the item patay na un na di na nagreply ang taong to di na din matawagan then I decided to freeze the money however it was already withdrawn (10 mins after na deposit) its actually a lesson learned for me. never ever trust anyone.

    Babala sa mga mahihilig omorder gamit ang online.

    Kung meron man kayong katransaction gamit ang online at nag kasundo kayo na ang bayaran na gagamit nyo ay ang LBC remittance ito ang mga dapat nyong tandaan.

    1. napaka importanteng humingi muna ng personal ID’s ng taong pagpapadalahan bago magpadala, lalonat di nyo kilala ang taong pagpapadalahan nyo.

    2. paghiningi nila ang tracking or IPP code ng OR nyo ay wag nyong ibigay hangat wala pa ang produktong inorder nyo.

    3. kung ipapakita nyo man ang picture or scan copy ng OR to justify na naghulog natalaga kayo just make sure na hindi nila makikita ang full IPP or tracking code nyo.

    4. at ito ang pinaka importante – pag hiningi nila ang last 7 digits code ng tracking or IPP number ng OR (12 digits code yun) ay wag na wag nyong ibibigay, kayang-kaya nila i-trace ang 12 digits tracking code using the branch and location ng LBC na ginamit nyo sa pagpapadala.

    Base on my experience yesterday (Feb.19 2016), nagpadala ako ng Php7000 pambayad sa product na inorder ko, after ko ipadala inadvised ko sila na nahulog ko na yung partial payment for product na order ko and then they advised me na please scan or text yung last 7 digits ng tracking number, which I hesitate to give to them. First, I call them and ask what is your purpose to get the last 7 digits? And their response is, don’t worry sir this is to check only if the IPP/tracking code is valid or void, then since I have the knowledge regarding sa mga tracking/IPP code hindi ko binigay, after that they insist me na don’t worry Sir were legit seller and di namin kayo lolokohin, then fine and I tell them na ok I’ll send it to you. (syempre joke lang yun and since im a wise man I decided to call the LBC customer hotline prior to send their request) tulad ko, the first question ng LBC customer service is, “ano daw po yung reason nila why they need the last 7 digits?” of course and sinabi ko ay yung sinabi din nila sakin, to check land daw po if yung tracking number ko is valid or void, then the customer service said “ no sir, they can’t track the IPP using incomplete tracking number, how come that they can check it if valid or void?” (napaisip ako bigla, may kakaibang nagaganap) buti nalang na-advise ako ng LBC customer service na, if you want sir you can also bluff them, how? Pagrambulin ko daw yung last 4 digits then yun yung isend ko sakanila, kung malalaman daw nilang mali yung ibinigay ko sakanila meaning to say, kaya nga nilang malaman yung tracking no gamit lang ang 7 digit.

    5min later After ko isend at itext yung edited na OR ng LBC I received call from them, “ Sir mali daw po yung tenext nyo sakin na IPP code at the same time yung OR na senend nyo sa email is edited daw” nagulat ako kasi nalaman nilang edited yung OR and mali yung IPP code, ibig sabihin traceable nga yung last 7 digits ng LBC, I dunno how they can do, but malinaw na they can claim the money without complete tracking number while using only the last 7 digits.

    Sa sobrang dami naming diskusyon ng ka deal ko, I decided to pull out my order and void the OR.

    Ngayong araw (feb.19,2016) bumalik ako sa LBC to withdraw my money, nabigla ako sa kwento ng dalawang teller, “sir meron din pong same case nyo na nagtanong samin kung ok lang ibigay yung last 7 digit ng IPP code kasi ibinigay daw nya sa kadeal nya online, bumalik sya kahapon tulala tapos naiyak lutang kasi na withdraw daw yung pera nya ilang minuto pagtapos nyang ibigay yung last 7 digits ng tracking no. dina din daw nya matawagan yung cellphone number ng ka deal nya” nabigla ako sa sinabi nila teller, buti nalang naging WAIS ako at SIGURISTA hindi ako naloko.

    Sa mga mangloloko tulad mo Edgar A. Yu, hintayin mo ang paglilitis mapupunta ka sa impyerno, makakarma ka pala muna bago ka mapunta sa impyerno.
