Teachers Express Dismay After Losing Hard-Earned Cash to Hacker
Several teachers have expressed their frustration and disappointment after losing their hard-earned cash from the bank.
A teacher named William narrated that he received numerous notifications from his Land Bank account sending one-time password. William immediately went to a branch of the bank to express his concern but it was already closed.
The educator asked the guard to check his account but the security personnel assured him that his account is on-hold. The guard told him to return the other day but he found out that the transaction pushed through and lost his hard-earned savings worth P100, 000.
William repeatedly returned to the bank but the management told him that the lost cash can’t be recovered.
“Mabalik lang sana yung pera ko kasi pinag-ipunan ko yun, hindi yun basta nakuha lang e, inipon yun na pinagtrabahuan kop o yun e,” William said.
Another educator named Crisanto Cruz lost all his money from Land Bank due to unauthorized transaction. The suspect also used the same modus and received notifications as well as one-time PIN.
“Sana panagutan nila kasi nadiskubre ko 2018 pa pala nangyayari to, tinatago nila ayaw nilang panagutan, nakausap ko na po yung mga kasama kong teachers na nacontact ko pare-pareho po yung sagot sa amin e,” Cruz said.
Teacher Joanalyn Alcantara also lost her hard-earned cash, which is supposed to be used for the tuition fee of her children. The numbers of teachers complaining about their stolen money continue to increase.
The Teacher’s Dignity Coalition has been receiving reports from the members who lost varying amount of money after the funds were transfer from their Landbank payroll account to other bank or Gcash accounts.
