Police, Globe Telecom security team nab 7 broadband fraudsters

MANILA, Sept. 10 (PNA) -- Globe Telecom’s intensified campaign against fraudsters has led to the arrest of seven persons involved in the illegal sale of the company’s long-term evolution (LTE) modems.

Globe's campaign is intended to protect its customers from illegal activities involving its products and services.

“We strongly discourage our customers from purchasing internet connectivity devices from unauthorized dealers and instead entertain offers of various Globe products and services only from legitimate agents,” said Ronald Uychutin, vice president of Globe Telecom's Security and Anti-Fraud and Investigation Division.

He added that Globe will continue to coordinate closely with police authorities in pursuing its campaign against fraudsters.

A series of entrapment operations jointly conducted by police and a Globe security team resulted in the arrest of seven suspects involved in the illegal sale of Globe modems.

Arrested were David King Esguerra, 33, from Nueva Ecija; John John Mamuyac, 28, from Quezon City; Marc Searle Arboleda and Ma. Joanna Garcia, both 25, from Bacoor, Cavite; Michael Pascua, 29, from Dasmariñas City; Thomas Jefferson, 33, from Bacoor, Cavite; and Angeline Manlapao, 20, from Mandaluyong City.

Globe Telecom said the entrapment operations conducted against the suspects were based on a list of online sellers of Globe LTE modems, either through or Facebook. With police personnel posing as online buyers, suspects agreed to meet them, leading to their eventual arrests.

"The suspects are believed to be engaged in a modus operandi that involves the retrieval of LTE modems from legitimate customers on the pretext of an upgrade or repair," the company said.

The modems are then reconfigured and sold at a one-time cost payment in popular social online buy-and-sell sites, such as OLX and even networking sites, such as Facebook. Policemen recovered from the suspects numerous Globe LTE modems.

Meanwhile, Uychutin noted that the company will continue to work closely with police authorities in pursuing fraudsters. (PNA)
