fraud is everywhere

Last Thursday, 3 girls came to me and approached me about their school "projects". Since two of them were foreigners like me of course I helped them (I thought). They asked me about where I live, who lives with me and some other personal questions. Without any hesitations, I told them almost anything they would want to know but due to my stupidity, I didn't notice that it was just all fraud.

At the end of our conversations they asked me to sign a paper as a prove that they talked to me. Of course I sign since I wanted to help. I signed in a clean piece of paper. When I took the tram going to my school, they were rushed and gave me a pink paper. I wondered at first what it was but when I read it and understand all, I got very nervous and felt very angry.

I signed a one year contract of paying some bills which we will never use or will never even feel it. The worse thing is it's on my husband’s name.

Of course I understand the reactions of my husband when I told him. I told him before it might get worst when he will know that he will pay a bills that it’s not ours and bills is more than a thousand crowns every month. As of now, I don’t know yet if we can cancel that contract. I called already and they said, I must call again after 10 days.

Hope I can cancel it soon as I can. This will be a lesson for me being so friendly and helpful...

Take it easy Jen,I don't blame you because we, Filipinos are known to be friendly and helpful.It's just that sometimes, people take advantage of that and put us in trouble.Just be careful next time.Enjoy your weekend!

Well Jen, yan ang pinakamasakit, we should help each other since we are not in our homeland but that Pinay have done the opposite.I was taken advantage by a kababayan too, when we were staying in Malaysia before.That was a lesson for me, so when we arrived here in Pk, I'm very careful ...can u imagine, in my 7 years stay here, I only have 2 Pinay friends and we seldom met.Thousands of Pinoys here but I never join any gathering...na-phobia na jud ko tawon!
