As a semi-permanent tourist, I got my drivers license over 6 years ago and just renew it every 3 years or so.  I have only an ACR card so no other information was required.  No drivers test, nothing.

6 years ago  is l o n g   l o n g time ago

This is getting weirder and weirder all the time, who leaves p3M in cash in their car in plain sight with the window open but what is even more worrisome is they were at Ayala, so possibly put some of those skimmers on the machines there.

Romanians charged as cops recover car with P3M cash

Also charged was Mircea Jordan, an alleged cohort of the suspects who remains at large.
P 3M in parked car

The Regional Intelligence Division (RID) recovered an abandoned Toyota Camry car believed to be used by the Romanians.

The car with plate number ZKM 158 was found at the parking area of Ayala Center Cebu Basement 2 last Thursday, March 16.

The security guards peeped at the opened car windows and found P3 million in cash, said Senior Supt. Jonathan Cabal, head of RID.

“So pina-paging nila sa mall para ma-announce kung sino ang may-ari ng sasakyan (The guards asked the mall management to announce the presence of a car whose windows were left open),” he said.

Moments later, two Romanians arrived and claimed the money.

A day after, the security guards learned from news reports that the two Romanians who claimed the money were among those arrested by the NBI in relation to the ATM skimming in Cebu on March 17.

On the same day, Friday, the mall’s security guards noticed the same vehicle at the parking area.

No one returned to claim the vehicle, prompting the mall security to call the attention of the police last Sunday.

Recovered inside the car were two laptops, Cabal said.

“Those laptops will be subjected to forensic exam. We don’t know yet why no one claimed the vehicle,” he said.

Based on the records of the Land Transportation Office, the car was registered to a certain Sebastian Rama Oros who is based in Villa Sol Colorado Street in Angeles, Pampanga.

“Perhaps the vehicle was rented or stolen,” Cabal said.

These Romanians may be good at setting up and concealing these electronic skimming devices.   But beyond that they don't seem to be to bright.

i hope they like old stale rice with lots of cockroaches both alive and dead.  Because where they are going that will probably be there diet for quite some time.

Romanians travel the world pulling their disgusting little scams on the people of whichever country they are operating in ,

Theft and deception is their MO , slippery slimebags , they are also famous for entering a shop en masse  and distracting staff with enquiries while their cohorts conceal the shops contents within their clothing etc. 

If you ever shake hands with a Romanian ....count how many fingers you have left on your hand when it's done.....

This reminds me of the Canadian big time drug dealers who decided to set up shop in Manila . And soon got busted.  Its very hard to blend into a culture where you look very different, act very different, and the locals will all rat  you out in a heart beat ! .

 Its a big mistake to  consider the yokels easy pickings .

Good to see that they are going to go hard on them.

Three Romanian skimmers charged; no bail allowed

 

 
 
 

So.. Theft = No Bail

But.. Frustrated Homicide with an Illegal Firearm = p144k bail if you're a rich local.

They know if they get out on bail they will never see them again.

Right. Flight risk equals no bail ... unless you belong to a rich/powerful Filipino family ... in which case flight risk is ignored.
