Hays...
just had a stressful day yesterday because of them.

Nasa Robinson's Galleria ako kahapon, nang may biglang lumapit saken na bading na agent from Philippine Prudential (and I'll really say his name is Dennis aka ChinChin Gutierrez), teliing me that they are celebrating this 50th anniversary and they are having a raffle promo, a trip for two to Thailand and a brand new honda civic car, and if you join the said raffle, they are giving away freebies even if you're not a member of Prudential. What's the catch? Advertisement daw. All they need is for you tell your friends about the promo and encourage to join them as well. They won't sell you ANYTHING. At take note paulit ulit yan. Just as I am filling up my name, inorient pa nya ko about these infos that he's telling me, since I'll have to repeat what he says when claiming my prize, dahel may magiinterview daw (just few questions lang daw..) He asked me for an ID, when I told him I don't have one brought with me, he told me a credit card or any debit card will do (sana dito pa lang nakaamoy na ko..)

All these details na paulit ulit eh hindi ko na napansin yung mag-say daw dapat ng 'YES' sa lahat ng questions, including sa 45 minute presentation (lupit ng psychological tactics pare!!) at pagdating dun, eto na. Fill up ulit ng kung anong form, nagtanong ng ID, walang maipakita so credit card ang pinakita, at tinanong kung ilan ang atm ko, tapos katumbas nun eh binigyan ako ng raffle tickets.
Then proceed sa conference room para sa 45 minute presentation.

To make the story short, nagpresent sya saken ng napakahabang explanation about savings, goals, and asked some questions about my personal life and financial status. Hindi ko namalayan ang oras dahil bago lang din ako about investments so mejo naging interested din ako sa discussion. Hanggang sa bandang huli, in-explain nya saken yung kanilang offer to help on how to save,
by allotting a portion of my salary to be deposited in the bank (reserved funds daw?) and some of it will go to payments of premiums in which in return, meron daw death and endowment benefits.

Dahil sa hindi ako umoo agad at maraming tanong, nilapitan na ko ng manager. Tinanong ako kung ano ba daw yung mga reasons ko baket ako hindi umo-oo. At sympre nagsabe naman ako, ata lahat ng reasons ko binigyan nya ng paliwanag. Sa madaling salita, pinigilan na ko ng ilang beses maka - oo lang sa offer nila. At lahat talaga ginawa nilang pagpipigil lalo na ang manager dhel ata sa nalaman nilang me credit card ko.. (engerts ko talaga hahaha  :applause:) Hindi ko pa mamamalayan na nakaka 2 oras na ko sa loob kung hindi pa ko papasukin ng kasama ko at hilahin ako palabas.

At dun ko nalaman na marami na din daw pala ang lumabas na mga na-interview na nakasimangot, at may iba pa daw na hinahabol ng 2-3 agent hangang paglabas.

Hays. Masama lang ang loob ko kase niloko nila ko sa 45 minutes na yun hahahhaa...Sayang ang oras  :D

Gusto nyo ng advertisement ha? Eto ang magsisilbing ads ko sa kanila. Syempre bat nga naman ako magsisinungaling. Kukwento ko na kung ano yung naranasan ko di ba?

At syempre curious na din ako sa experience ng iba (baka nga naman me sinasabe din sila), nag-search ako ng reviews, at ito ang nakita ko (ok lang ba magpost ng link? )  http://bistado.com/news/scam/philippine-prudential-life-insurance-company-promo-scam/ 

Any comments? better yet experiences? I'll share this board link to other sites, so people would know this kind of tactics these vultures do. Ang hirap maging ignorante at maloko eh. Kakasama ng loob. what more na lang kaya kung naglabas na ko ng pera. hayssssssss.

Did they ask for your card number and other info on the card itself?

^nope.. unless may photographic memory sila eh patay ako :(
and I wouldn't give other infos on my CC unless I'm interested in their offer..
and good thing I'm not dumb enough to give the security code in my CC to strangers.
so beware na lang tayo mga peeps :(

^Buti na lang. Base kasi sa story mo, yun na ang next step / additional scam, bukod pa sa alok nilang "investment opportunity" sa yo.

SM Megamall 5th floor.
Same company.
Lumapit sakin bading din (no offense to anyone in the gay community).
Asked if I have a credit card.  I said yes.
He then told me about the raffle for a car and all I need to do is just listen to their program.

I refused and walked away.
I knew from the start that they want me to join because they asked for my credit card.

Question:
1) Were you able to join the raffle even though you did not join their investment/insurance program?  If yes, then not a scam since they told the truth.  If no, then SCAM!

I'm pretty sure ito yung DANVIL dati. nag rename lang ata sila. same tactics. muntik nang mabiktima GF ko nito. ang masama lang is kakilala pa nya ang nag-invite sa kanya. matindi mangharass ang mga yan mapa-oo ka lang. ang ginawa ko pinasok ko yung room nila kung saan may mga tables na nagdidiscuss ang mga agents and yung potential client nila. pinuntahan ko yung GF ko and just like what happened kay TS, hinila ko rin sya papalabas. buti na lang di pa nasswipe ang credit card nya.

advise lang din sa iba, if in case nabiktima din kayo to the point na naswipe ang credit card nyo, wag nyo lang pirmahan di kayo ibibill ng CC company nyo. and assuming worst case scenario na napirmahan nyo, demand from them na ireverse ang transaction kasi if not ikakalat mo yun, media or whatever. it's your turn na manakot. also tawag kayo sa CC company to inform them of the trxn and request na wag i-honor kasi under pressure ka nung pumirma ka. give all the details na alam mo of the company kasi if ever marami kayong nagreklamo for that certain merchant, iinvestigate ng company yun.
knew that kasi ang friend ko ganun ang nangyari, pumirma ba naman. hehe buti na lang naagapan at di binayaran ng CC company, nireverse ang transaction.

but if ever gusto mo naman talaga bumili ng product nila, disregard all of the above.  :watchuthink:

Hmmmmm.. ito rin ang isa pang kaduda duda.. nung hinatak na ko ng kasama ko palabas, nakabuntot na yung manager at yung financial advisor kuno na kausap ko, at nangungulit pa din. Sabe ko no thanks na lang, after nila sayangin oras ko. Sinosoli ko na pati raffle tickets..
Sabe wag daw, so pinapahulog na saken yung tickets dun sa dropbox corner nila.

Ang siste, nung pupunitin ko na yung tickets para mahiwalay yung name ko dun sa ticket number, sabe ni financial advisor, no need na daw since tatawagan na lang daw ako kung manalo ako.. parang huh??? anyways sa pagmamadali ko, di ko na din maisip na kumontra pa at lumabas na lang ako...

Ngayon napaisip ako, nag last look ako nun sa ticket eh..I'm pretty sure na iisa lang yung ticket number na nakaprint dun..eh meron bang raffle ticket na iisa lang yung number (katabi ng name) tapos walang reference yung contestant kung nanalo na sya or hinde during raffle??? pede ba yun?
Chka, di ba pag me ads ng raffle or promo, parang me mga DTI NCR permit number etc. na kasamang pinopost sa ads yung raffle na yun? yung leaflets na binigay nila saken about sa raffle, wala akong nakita. Don't tell me pati raffle joke time din? huwaw....

lesson learned, when somebody you don't know is approaching you and asking if you have a credit or an atm cards, just tell them that you don't have any of those, tapos po ang kwento...;  there's no need to explain....

Lagi ko to ginagawa pag nasa mall, 3-4 steps away pa lang, may hand signal na ako na "NO".. e 1 time merong isang masigasig, paglagpas ko sa kanya bumuntot pa rin sakin. ang kulit sinusundan ako ng tawag, "ser, ser, excuse me lang ser". finally nilingon ko.. sabay hininaan ang boses nya, "ser, bukas zipper nyo"... #truestory  :-[

Yes makasali ka sa raffle kahit hindi ko nag join...lalagay mu lng ung raffle ticket dun sa parang ewan na box...But i doubt that the raffle is legit! ahaha anyone could create that kind of bogus...marketing strategy to the fullest to attract probable victims....

I'm surprised tumagal sila sa Megamall. Yan ba yung dating Family First? Di naman siguro scam. Boiler room tactics lang siguro.
