According to the complainants’ legal counsel, Atty. Ariel Inton, more than 1,000 persons have fallen prey to the modus operandi wherein the perpetrators rent a victim’s vehicle for P40,000 , run away with the vehicle and sell it.
The suspects allegedly operate across the country, mostly in Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite and Laguna.
“We came here at the Department of Justice to appeal for help and urge the justice department to conduct thorough investigation,” said, Atty. Inton.
“We can see that a huge syndicate is involved here. All over the country, various units of vehicles are being recovered as far as Marawi, Tawi-Tawi.” — UNTV News and Rescue
