Mark Ernest Villeza - The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — Agents of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) recently arrested four suspects allegedly engaged in a GCash scam during separate operations in Manila and Quezon City.

Jay Cortez, Kevin Maboloc and Jeffrey Ilagan were nabbed by the NBI in Old Balara, Quezon City. The fourth suspect, Jeffrey Miguel, was apprehended in Tondo, Manila.

Miguel told authorities that they were selling GCash accounts to their victims for use in online casinos and Philippine offshore gaming operators or POGOs operated by Taiwanese and Chinese nationals.

The suspects said they would buy GCash accounts for P450 then sell these for P550 through online platforms Facebook and Messenger.

The suspects are being held on charges of violating Republic Act 8464 or the Access Devices Regulation Act.
