Silly American, he did not know lending means giving


Recommended Posts

Yet another expat duped. The only part that confuses me is how it took him that long to realize he was being cheated, there surely has to be A lot more to the story.

Caregiver dupes disabled American of PhP915K

 A disabled American has accused his Filipina caregiver of allegedly duping him of PhP915,000 and filed estafa charges against her, media reports said.

Since being hired, Leah Caparida, 33, borrowed money from him for 21 times. He said he gave her cash in 20 out of the 21 instances she asked for a loan, Marvin Hensel, 57, was quoted as saying by Inquirer.

In an affidavit submitted to the Manila Police District general assignment section, Hensel reportedly said he was filing 20 counts of estafa against her.

He was quoted as saying that Caparida started borrowing money in May 2015.

She often claimed that she needed the cash for hospitalization, the report said.

Since then, almost every week, Hensel would lend Caparida money, sometimes in dollars, sometimes in peso.

On Monday afternoon, Caparida attempted to borrow PhP27,000 to pay her bills in a Bulacan hospital.

“I refused (to give her the money) after I confirmed with the hospital…that there is no such patient in her name ,” Hensel was quoted as saying by Inquirer.

Hope he has fun spending Php 915,000 in attorney fees and bribes to recover the lost Php 915,000.

He might eventually get a favorable ruling but he'll never see the money again.

Upon further investigation it will be determined that the lender was Canadian.

The gentleman will have on top of all the stupidity of the system here, 2 major speed bumps.

 

1.) The poorly written libel law saying accusing her of estafa could get him sued even if it's true.

2.) The system will NEVER allow a Filipino(a) to ever lose face to a foreigner.

Even if he won a case, that money is probably long gone...

Just exactly how could she be much of a caretaker if she was so sickly?

 

What you want to bet he is contacted by a 'relative' of the lady who claims she was so ashamed over the bogus

charges, she killed herself?

He should drop the charges, and also send 50000 php so they can bury her.

 

 

FWIW, I've made over 270 small loans via Kiva.org to ladies in SE Asia. SOME ladies do know what an actual loan is

 

Only a few have defaulted, or been late, and the default/late percentage at Kiva for SE Asian females, is much lower than

other groups.

 

I was stunned, also. :)
