Today's News: Mwahahaha! Those swindlers deserve it! May you all rot in jail.
Just last year, those credit card swindlers visited our shop. They bought 30 bottles of Johnnie Walker Blue (market value = P 4500.00 per bottle) and dive computers that costs about 10,000-30,000 pesos using fraudulent credit cards. They also visited other dive shops around Makati and bought the same thing. I wasn't there to see how those f*cking bastards look like. My sister was there. There was something suspicious about them. We didn't have enough stock available in the store. We asked for their address so we could deliver it, but they refused. They prefer to pick it up in the store. My sister was already suspicious about them. They came back the next day to pick up the goods. Armed with digi cam, she took their pictures and their car's plate number. Unfortunately, she missed the face^_^;;; After a week, the bank called and informed us about the fraud.
Recently, they swindled P 80,000 worth of groceries in Rustan's. There they met their fate. mwahahahaha. I don't care whether they were or weren't the one who went to our store. We were victimized by these organized crimes and as victims, we are happy that justice is served.
In their many years in business, my parents have seen lots of different fraud techniques. Some will ask you to deliver the goods to one corner and collect the money in another corner. After leaving them to collect the money, they will run away with the goods. Some will confuse you with change. Some will pay in cheque that would later bounce.
There are really lots of technique. That's why my parents are very cautious when it comes to goods and money matters. If somebody near us was swindled, they would lecture and remind us right away about their experiences and recent swindling techniques. That's why, we are not easily fooled by anybody.
a chat between my achi (older sister) and my shoti (younger brother) about the fruit juicer. Shoti is in Canada for about a year already. This isn't the actual chat between them but it's more of my summary of their chat.

achi: bumili na ba kayo ng fruit juicer?
shoti: yup
achi: paano mo nilagay yung carrot sa juicer?
shoti: you top it, tail it, wash it, slice it, and then juice away!
whoa! my shoti is speaking to us in english. I know there's nothing wrong in speaking the language. It's just it's my shoti. We usually speak in tagalog and we're used to that. From that convesation alone, he is beginning to sound like a coñoboy. Hehe.
