Actress Angelica Panganiban expressed her relief after the woman who allegedly used her credit card has been arrested by the authorities.
According to a report by ABS-CBN News, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) found that the woman used P5,000 from Angelica’s credit card and attempted to spend P500,000 in a casino.
NBI- International Operations Division Chief Ronald Aguto said: “We asked our artist to do a cartographic sketch, noong na-verify may nakuha tayong warrant of arrest. Noong nakausap natin siya inamin niyang siya ang gumamit ng card.”
According to the investigation, the said woman used Angelica’s original credit card which she renewed from the bank.
“‘Yung card nakukuka sa couriers, heto ‘yung mga renewal ng cards tapos nagagawan nila ng paraan para ma-activate ito. It appears na magkakasabwat but it’s hard to say, kung ano ang relationship ng courier sa bangko,” Agusto added.
The suspect is currently facing credit card fraud charges apart from other charges relating to her use of Angelica’s credit card.
Angelica meanwhile extended her thanks to the NBI in a Twitter post, saying: “Maraming salamat NBI! Kapag akala mong, sadlak na sadlak na ang sistema… May mga tao pa din na tapat ang serbisyo. Salamat po!”
