BAGUIO CITY – Mayor Benjamin Magalong warned the public on a reported modus being conducted by unscrupulous individuals collecting money in exchange of fake land deals at Purok 28, Barangay Irisan.
In a press conference held Friday, August 2, Magalong said a certain individual introducing himself as Joel Mayol from the pool of generals of the Philippine National Police has been fooling individuals mostly from the lowlands as far as Quezon and Bicol provinces including uniformed personnel.
Magalong said barangay officials and the Irisan community have complained the matter to him thus he ordered for an investigation and order the arrest of Mayol including his pastor associate.
“Napakaraming hiningan ng pera at naloko itong pekeng heneral Joel Mayol na nagbebenta ng mga lupa sa Purok 28, Irisan,” Magalong said.
According to the mayor, the lots being sold are titled properties but Mayol and his associates present themselves as formidable force by victimizing uniformed personnel to be their protector.
Magalong said Mayol and his pastor associate are currently developing a big building within the barangay but are nowhere to be found.
“I have met him during the campaign and he cannot even give details as to his claim being a general so I am warning the public not to transact any business with this person and his associates,” Magalong said.
Magalong added that Mayol and his associates are reportedly transacting properties in Loakan and even in Philex, Tuba.
