A Chinese couple bought a condominium unit for PHP 140,000 from an attractive agent. Their new condo was supposedly located on the 39th floor.
The catch? The building only had 38 floors.
According to Long Qiuxi, his girlfriend visited him in the Philippines and they were planning to rent a place to stay at. An agent by the name of Ella approached them. They found the agent through OnlineFinder.
Ella showed the couple a view of the showroom in Greenbelt. They paid a huge amount of money for unit #39-11 only to find out that the building only had 38 floors when they came to visit.
The documents they were holding contained no notary marks, making the case hard to chase.
Greenbelt Parkplace Condominium denied any connection with Ella, who identified herself as one of the building's agents.
Authorities remind everyone to always be mindful of the people they transact with, especially through the internet. They assure the Chinese couple that they are taking measures to find the scammer who took their money.
