Janella Salvador loses over P100K from debit card
Actress Jenine Desiderio nearly “collapsed” from her seat after seeing the recent bank statement of her daughter, teen star Janella Salvador, having dubious transactions involving more than P100,000.
The bank statement included three debit card transactions from Tokyo Disneyland amounting to almost P110,000, even though Salvador was not in Japan at the time of the transactions.
“Ang kaduda-duda dito ay same amount, same date, same name tapos paulit-ulit ng tatlong beses. In one date parang tatlong transactions (What was suspicious about it was that it had the same amount, same date, [and the] same name three times),” Desiderio told ANC.
What made matters worse was that Desiderio only knew of the transaction last week because the bank failed to punctually deliver her account statements. Desiderio did not enroll her daughter in online banking as well.
“Hindi ko alam na kahit pala maingat ka, pwede pa lang mangyari yung mga bagay na ito (I didn’t know that even if you’re careful, these things can happen),” she concluded.
Salvador also lamented the incident. “I got sad when I saw it because of, first of all, I find it really disappointing and sad that people nowadays can just steal a big amount of money that other people worked hard for, of course,” she told the news site.
The bank made the assurance that it would investigate all debit-card-related concerns, including Desiderio’s. Gianna Francesca Catolico /ra
