Thief Steals from Volunteers Helping Typhoon Victims Unknowingly Uploads Selfies to the Internet
You know how there are scumbags out there who steal things that aren’t theirs? Well, this guy takes the scumbag level to a whole new low! This mother&#^%*#$@ not only stole items that aren’t his, but he actually did it while at the Villamore Airbase where volunteers were helping super typhoon Yolanda / Haiyan victims!
My good friend was volunteering at the Villamor Airbase, greeting victims of super typhoon Yolanda / Haiyan who were arriving there by giving them food, shelter, rides, and even hugs! Of course, some worthless jerks had to take advantage of a vulnerable situation like this to steal from those who are helping!
Volunteers were helping at the Villamor Airbase here – https://www.wheninmanila.com/adopt-a-day-need-volunteers-at-villamor-airbase-to-greet-and-help-victims-arriving-from-visayas/ when their personal items were stolen.
Hey guy! You got a lot of bad karma coming your way! In fact, that bad karma starts now!
See, this ugly sonofagun started to take some selfies with his new stolen gadgets, but what he didn’t know is that my friend has her photo album linked up with her Dropbox account. For those of you not familiar, it pretty much means all his photos get uploaded to her other online file sharing account. So she sees all the photos and selfies the stupid thief is taking!
Please help us find this thief!
Below are the details my friend posted:
I just want to give a friendly warning to all of you especially who are volunteering now in Villamor Airbase and other relief operations. Some people are just here to really take advantage during times like these.
As you might know, I lost some valuables last Tuesday, November 19, while doing volunteer work in Villamor Airbase. Before we even started, we noticed this guy in pink shirt lingering around our designated area, but since we thought he is with the other volunteer group with the sole purpose also of helping the Yolanda survivors, we just ignored him and continued packing & distributing relief goods. Little did we know that he was there not to help, but he was there for his own personal gain.
Thanks to technology, I was able to confirm my suspicions. Two days after the incident, I was able to retrive pictures of him thru my Dropbox app account that is synced to my stolen Samsung S4 phone. YESSS! THE THIEF IS UNKNOWINGLY SENDING ME HIS SELFIE PICS!!!
The police said this might be a scheme/ modus operandi, so please, to all of you, please be warned. Look at his pictures. Stare at it. (Creepy!!) Be vigilant. Take care of your things and beware of people like him. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD. Pls help me share.
Again, they saw THIS GUY lurking around their area by the airbase, which removes the possibility of this being some random guy who bought the phone at Greenhills. (he probably tried to sell it there). Also, if he just “found” this phone, he could have turned it in to the proper authorities instead of taking it home and taking selfies! He could have also just called any number on the phone to report that he found it if so.
Moreover, we re-confirmed with my friend if they are sure they saw this guy there, as he may have just bought this phone from Greenhills not knowing it was stolen, and they said:
Yep. we are 500% sure!!! I was with other friends that night. We all remembered him from that night lurking around our area. It will be too much of a coincidence that he was there too the moment I lost my phone… and he coincidentally bought the same phone in Greenhills… and the first picture uploaded by him is around the time I lost my phone..
Moreover, sold phones are usually formatted first. So if this guy who happened to be lurking around their stuff, coincidentally bought the exact phone my friend lost within minutes of her loosing her phone and started uploading selfies, it would probably not be loading to her Dropbox account.
Without further delay, here are the photos of this sad sad thief, who steals from people volunteering their time to help super typhoon victims.
If you recognize him or know who he is, please leave a comment below!
