Woman Who Pretend as Cop to Scam Businessmen Arrested by NBI

The NBI agents have launched an entrapment operation and arrested a woman impersonating police officials to scam businessmen.

The personnel of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in Taguig City arrested the 30-year-old female suspect for pretending as a police officer. The woman reportedly scammed several businessmen.

The suspect identified as Filence Carla Lam introduced herself as Police Lt. Col. Brillante Billaoac who was supposedly in the PNP Bids & Awards Cmte. However, Billaoac has already moved to the Region 2 Drug Enforcement Unit in Tuguegarao, Cagayan.

According to NBI-SAU executive officer Kristine Dela Cruz, Lam allegedly offers contracts to her victims to become a food and equipment suppliers for the Philippine National Police (PNP) and Office of Civil Defense (OCD).

Lam even assured her victims that she can secure the projects and presented a notice of award to prove her claims.

“Gumagawa siya ng mga accounts sa call and text app at nagpapakilala siya bilang mga top PNP officials na parties ng transactions sa mga biddings and awards ng mga ganitong project. Dito niya napapaniwala talaga ang mga biktima,” Dela Cruz said.

The authorities also discovered that the bidding documents were readily downloadable online. The signatures of PNP officials in the letters have been copy-pasted. The scammer’s scheme has been exposed after the victim contacted Billaoac.

One victim said that he paid an amount worth P6 million to the suspect to secure the transaction. Lam allegedly asked for an additional “under the table” payment worth P1.5 million.
