Victims of Rasuman pyramiding scheme swarm Pasay police headquarters
MANILA, Philippines–Alleged victims of the infamous Rasuman pyramiding scam trooped to the Pasay City police headquarters following the arrest of Princess Tomawis Rasuman, wife of the alleged mastermind of the rip-off.
Alleged victim Johari Diampuan claimed in a radio interview that Princess worked as an “accountant” of her husband Jachob “Coco” Rasuman.
Diampuan said he lost over P100 million from the pyramiding scam that operated in Mindanao.
Senior Superintendent Rodolfo Llorca, Pasay City police chief, earlier said Princess Tomawis Rasuman was arrested Wednesday evening by virtue of an arrest warrant.
Llorca said a concerned citizen tipped off the police of her whereabouts that led to her arrest.
Jachob and Princess, along with Bashir Rasuman Sr., Bashir Rasuman Jr., Emma Rasuman, Sultan Jerry Tomawis, Jeremiah “Maning” Rasuman and Jerome Rasuman were facing two counts of syndicated estafa charges.
Jachob was arrested last year.
