Duterte warns vs online scammers selling face masks: 'Ihulog sa Pasig River'




The country has been trying to cope up with the demand for masks since January when Taal volcano erupted spewing volcanic ashes to wherever the winds blows it.
And then the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19 came which added to the demand for any kind of masks that can help deter being infected with the deadly infectious disease.


Because of the glut in the supply chain, dishonest and scrupulous sellers are taking advantage of the demand and has been raking in the profits since the 1st quarter of this year.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte in his public address told the public to be careful in online scams for face masks, he even adds that this dishonest sellers should be "dumped into the Pasig River" despite the country dealing with the pandemic brought about by COVID-19.

"Do not go for that kind of s**t 'yung magbili-bili kayo online, mask, tapos ka-text ninyo [na seller] is from Pampanga, from Abra. Saan man sila magkuha ng mask doon? Wala nga sa Maynila," Duterte said in a press conference.
"Dito kayo sa Maynila, sa mga holdaper, puwede pa. Puwede kayong bumili, mayroon pa yang p******** stock [ng mask] iyang mga animal na iyan," he added.


(Do not go for that kind of s**t where the seller you're texting with could be in Pampanga or Abra province. Where will they masks there? There is no masks even in Manila. Buy instead from the robbers here in Manila. Those animals have a stock of masks.)
Duterte said the buyers should carefully inspect the face masks they have ordered online.
"Do not fall for that thing na online-online. It has never been perfected and all of the scams that man could think of, that they can perpetrate on the innocent public, pinag-aaralan nila 'yan (they are studying that)," Duterte said.
Scammers "take advantage of the misery of people," he said.


"Ang iyo d'yan is i-deliver mo, papasukin mo sa loob iyong nagdala ng mask, talian mo. 'Pag gabi, maghanap ka ng sasakyan, ihulog mo sa Pasig River. Maraming tulay d'yan, alas-3 ng madaling-araw, wala nang dumadaan d'yan, maski anong ihulog mo wala nang makialam d'yan," Duterte said.
"Kung ako, iyan ang gawin ko sa inyo: talian ko iyong paa ninyo, pati kamay ninyo, saksakan ko iyong bunganga ninyo ng medyas niyong mabaho, 5 araw na walang laba tapos talian ko ng panyo. Ihulog kita sa Pasig," he said.
(If it were up to me, that's what I'll do to you: I'll tie your feet and hands, stuff your mouth with your foul-smelling socks that have not been washed for 5 days, gag you with a handkerchief. I'll throw you into Pasig.)
