A Filipino woman has been charged for a suspected Ponzi scheme, involving fellow Filipino Canadians.

Carmelita Del Rosario, 42, is charged with two counts of fraud over $5,000 for allegedly bilking 49 people out of amounts ranging from $2,000 to an estimated $25,000 or $35,000, according to reports from the Edmonton Journal.

Police said del Rosario earned $1. 8M USD by convincing Filipinos to invest in the workers compensation board, between 2009 and 2012.

Police say it will be difficult to recover the money the victims lost.

Del Rosario faces two counts of fraud, and is due in court later this month.

      Why are you so biased about Catholics? What has religion got to do with a person’s honesty?

    @kikaypango — kungmsalita ka naman akala mo kung sino kang mas mataas pa sa Diyos. Bakit ano kinabibahan ng religion mo sa iba? May extra poers ka ba?

    The things i have observed in terms of laptop memory is the fact there are specs such as SDRAM, DDR and many others, that must match the technical specs of the motherboard. If the pc’s motherboard is reasonably current and there are no operating-system issues, upgrading the ram literally normally takes under one hour. It’s among the easiest computer system upgrade processes one can envision. Thanks for discussing your ideas.

    Quit offering on eBay due to the fact that’s protect ample now and I don`t think products and services like that are needed on auction web sites any longer, regardless that in my opinion, the services are a God-send for Craigslist purchases and yes it must expand its products and services on other internet websites too. Their easy but effective methods grabbed my awareness from the start and I was blown away on how quick the purchase proceeded to go. They most definetely are NOT a gimmick.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
