"I find it really disappointing and sad that people nowadays can just steal a big amount of money that other people worked hard for," said Janella Salvador after finding out that she had become a victim of debit account phishing.
Her mom, actress Jenine Desiderio, revealed in an interiew with TV Patrol that she discovered irregularities in her daughter's bank statement recently. According to her, there were debit charges from Tokyo Disneyland Japan back in August 2016. The charges were said to have amounted up to a total of P110,000.
She made it clear that Janella was in the Philippines when the transactions occured. They were not notified by the bank earlier of charges because her daughter's account was not enrolled in the bank's online system.
