Woman Charged With P200K On Credit Card Unknowingly

WOMAN – A pregnant woman discovered that she was charged P200,000 worth of items on her credit card.

People nowadays were preferred buying online shops because it’s easier and the items are delivered in your front door the next day.

A lot of Filipino people have already adopted this kind of business. They post pictures on their Facebook account which buyers could get to choose.

Financial Adviser Kristen Camille Martinez took to the social media to express her disappointment to her credit card that’s issued by Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI).

Martinez said Lazada charged her credit card the amount of P204,000 worth of items in just one day without her knowledge.

Based on her post, BPI’s Card Fraud Control Team told Kristen Camille Martinez that she “may have unknowingly shared the information which my to her online account being compromised.”

Martinez was not satisfied by that reply so she sent another email to that bank but this time she didn’t receive any reply.

Last January 4, the woman received a letter informing her to play her credit card bill that’s worth more than P200,000.

“Nakakagulat lng na wala kang nakukuhang sagot sa email tapos bigla kang makakakuha ng letter from law office, so dun na pala natapos yung investigation?” said Martinez.
