Bulag na sidewalk vendor sa Cebu, nabiktima ng pekeng P1000 bill; video viral

A concerned netizen has shared a video, via CDN Digital, of a blind sidewalk vendor who was paid by an unscrupulous buyer using a fake P1,000 bill.

Good netizens helped poor Tatay and referred his case to the barangay hall in Basak, Lapu-Lapu City.

His case also caught the attention of Mayor Junard Chan.

On Oct. 4, Mayor Chan made a late night post, where he promised to help Tatay.

The mayor promised to go after the buyer, seeking for his arrest.

He also assured the poor vendor not to worry because he will be doing everything to catch the person who duped him. He also said that it was very painful that they were able to do such thing.

"Ayaw kabalaka Tay, buhaton nako ang tanan nga masikop tong nangilad nimo. Sakit gyud gihapon sa akong dughan nga nakaya nila ang maong binuhatan," said Chan.
