In this age and time everything could easily be imitated, through the help of technology all things could have a fake version; from luxury bags, clothes, makeup, shoes, smartphone, and even food could have a counterfeit so it is very important to be vigilant with the things we buy.
But did you know that goods are not the only things that could easily be replicated nowadays? This is the reason why a beauty and wellness doctor recently seeks the help of veteran broadcaster Ben Tulfo also known as Bitag to complain about a culprit who used her name in a fake medical certificate.
According to Dra Drolah M. Sanchez, a Human Resource staff from a certain company in Lipa City, Batangas recently went to her clinic together with their employee Precious Casey Bautista who was able to secure a medical certificate saying that Dra Sanchez examined her at Lipa City District Hospital.
But Dra. Sanchez said that she never remember checking the patient and revealed that she is no longer affiliated with the said hospital.
“Nag-aral kami ng more than 10 year, nagpaka-dalubhasa ng 3-5 years, tapos gagamitin lang yung pangalan mo sa hindi mo naman nakita? ‘Di ba parang unfair! Yung pinaghirapan naming sa pangalan namin na kine-keep namin, pwede kasing masira ‘yan! Baka isipin ng mga company kami yung fraud a kami ang gumagawa ng fake ng medical certificate” Dra. Sanchez said.
Bitag Team immediately gets the reaction of Lipa City District Hospital whose representative also denied that the medical certificate was acquired in their hospital since the said patient does not have a record with them and that Dra. Sanchez is no longer affiliated with their medical institution.
When the team coordinated with the patient, Precious admitted that she only faked the medical certificate with the help of a computer shop attendant in Batangas.
“Pinagawa ko lang po talaga yung medical certificate na halagang 120 (pesos) kasi po kapos po ako sa budget non, wala po akong pera non pang medical certificate pero masama po talaga lasa ko non, hindi lang ako nagpa-check up,” Precious said.
“Pinagtanungan lang po namin kung saan po dito may gawaan ng medical certificate, tapos doon po tinuro lang po kami sa mga computer-an hanggang sa nakita po namin yung isang lalaki na nag gagawa ng medical certificate,” she added.
Bitag undercover team immediately check the 02 Computer Shop where Precious had her medical certificate done and found a certain Garette and requested him to create a new certificate. Upon confirming that he is the culprit, the team through the help of police conducted another operation to seize the suspect.
During their confrontation, Garette confessed that the medical certificate template was just given to him by someone whom he refuses to identify. Authorities immediately Garette behind bars and made sure he will never have the chance to create fake medical certificates again.
