Facing charges of estafa and violation of the Anti Alias Law are Ryan Cleofe, 29; Esmeralda Morales, 28; and Filoteo Tome Jr. They were arrested in separate Globe Telecom stores in Cebu City.


The suspects submitted fake documents in their application for postpaid accounts and avail of high-end mobile phones, said a press statement from Globe.

“These people try and obtain postpaid accounts using fraudulent IDs with the intent of never paying for them and also to get the high-end unit which normally comes free with a subscription.

Castelo, head of Globe Corporate and Legal Services Group./CORRespondent EDISON A. DELOS ANGELES
