The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) yesterday announced the arrest of a man who had been duping car dealers during an entrapment operation at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 in Pasay City.
NBI Director Dante Gierran identified the suspect as Junjie Banaag Alimporos who uses the aliases Jeffrey Yap, Angelo Yap, Jeffry Cruz in his nefarious activities.
Alimporos has been charged in court with estafa and falsification of commercial and public documents.
According to NBI report, last June 1, Rizal Autozone Inc., dealer of Honda cars, reported an incident that happened last May 25 at their Rizal branch where the suspect using a Jeffrey Yap name ordered a Honda HRV unit via phone call and submitted through e-mail an approved Purchased Order from Malayan Bank, a driver’s license and a PRC license in support of his alleged loan application with Malayan Bank.
After the release of the said vehicle, it was found out all the documents submitted by the suspect were all fake and falsified.
On the same day Rizal Autozone Inc. learned from its other branch in Carmona, Cavite that the suspect had ordered a Honda CRV and instructed the Honda sales agent to register the unit under his brother’s name, Angelo Tuazon Yap, as it was supposed to be a gift for him. The said suspect carried out the same modus wherein he submitted thru e-mail a purportedly approved Purchase Order from Malayan Bank, together with driver’s license and PRC license bearing the name of his alleged brother Angelo Yap.
Based on the pictures contained on the IDs submitted by the subject, Jeffrey Yap and his alleged brother Angelo Yap are one and the same person.
On this basis, operatives of the NBI-AFD launched an entrapment operation and posed as Honda Carmona sales agents tasked to deliver the Honda CRV Unit to subject at the agreed time and place, resulting in the arrest of suspect Junjie Alimporos.
Suspect was presented for inquest for the crime of estafa through falsification of commercial and public documents before the Pasay City Prosecutor’s Office.
