NBI Arrest a Chinese National Alleged Suspect Behind the Sale of Vaccine Slots
The personnel of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has arrested a Chinese national who was allegedly behind the sale of the vaccine slots for COVID-19.
A Chinese national was reportedly collecting payments from other foreigners, predominantly Chinese, in exchange for coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccination slots, according to a GMA news report. The Chinese suspects have been identified as Fen Qun Wang by the National Bureau of Investigation.
Wang was accused of taking P18,000 from a female Chinese woman in exchange for a vaccine spot, according to NBI. According to the report, the sufferer did not receive any jabs.
Wang reportedly requested an additional P5,000 two weeks later in order to complete the vaccine. The Chinese victim conducts research into the vaccination slot that has been provided to her.
According to NBI Anti-Fraud and Action Division Chief Palmer Mallari, she verified the suspect’s reservation was bogus. As a result, the victim contacted the National Bureau of Investigation to report the Chinese fraudster.
“She tried to verify, she researched and found out that the vaccination and the processing of slots are free and she verified that the reservation offered to her was fake,” Mallari said in a report.
According to Mallari, the NBI discovered a list of 30 Chinese nationals’ names and phone numbers in Wang’s possession. Those figures are thought to be clients for vaccination slots, according to the NBI.
“It would appear that these are actually the names of the clients na nag-avail ng vaccinations na nagbayad sa kanya who availed of vaccinations and paid the suspect,” he said.
The National Bureau of Investigation is now looking into the list to see if they were able to secure vaccination. It is also working closely with local government bodies on the issue.
Suspect Wang, on the other hand, has denied receiving any payments. For refusing to be apprehended, he will be prosecuted with estafa, as well as direct assault, disobedience, and resisting arrest.
