Some people just won’t stop from victimizing innocent people. This crooked “laglag barya” gang has been in the look out for someone to fall into their trap!
Fortunately, this netizen who shared photos on social media was alert. According to her story, the guy knocked on her window and gestured something fell from the back of the car. But, the moment she remembered similar stories shared online, she ignored them and sped off.
A WARNING TO ALL LADY DRIVERS…At noontime today, while i was maneuvering in a narrow street at the exit of Metrobank ,Lahug a decent looking man knocked on my window and told me that something fell from the back of the car. Looking at him,i remembered (praise God!) the news a few days ago about the new modus operandi of robbers. I tried to ignore him ,then another man ( his cohort for sure! ) who was at the other side of the car intentionally tried to block the way to tell me the same thing. My instinct told me to flee and so i sped off! When i got to my destination, i found these 1 peso coins (21 pcs in all) carefully “planted” at the back of the car. No wonder that they are called the Laglag Barya Gang.. the moment you go down to check and get the coins/keys,etc “falling” from your car, an accomplice would enter your car from the opposite side to grab your bag/belongings.Again, pls,pls be aware of this modus operandi so that no one will become a victim to it.
