An Open Letter to the Snatcher at LRT Gil Puyat Station

I thought Filipinos are now united and truly care for each other after Bagyong Undoy (Undoy Storm), but I was wrong. Where I’m from, everyone’s not really a hero.

I was so confident and felt like I was still in Singapore, and maybe that’s why I ceased to have my beloved wallet now because I didn’t mind about the impending monster that will swallow my wallet into oblivion.

I really blame myself for being so negligent while entering the train inside Gil Puyat LRT station last week.

Still, I am hoping that this cunning snatcher will, by any chance, Google my name and read this blog post.

If you’re the one who took my wallet away from me, I hope that you’ll have a kind heart to return my SSS ID and my Brothers Burger stamp card because I only need 2 more stamps to get my free Brothers Pounder.

I know you don’t need my SSS ID, so please if you’re reading this, return it to me and I’m willing to give you $1,000.00 USD in cold cash! It took me 6 months before to get my SSS ID that’s why I just want to give a ransom and take my SSS ID from you, dear snatcher.

Regarding my Credit Cards and ATM cards, my bank already replaced them and deactivated the cards that you’ve stolen. So what I need now is only my SSS ID because it will take me months or years to get a new one.

You can reach me through my mobile number in my contact page if you want us to meet somewhere and claim your $1,000.00 USD. If you still have it, then great. If you don’t have it, then too bad for me and for you.

  1. Punta ka na lang sa SSS, sabihin mo sa nag-pro-process ng ID, bibigyan mo sha ng $500 kung maayos niya SSS ID mo ng same day.

    At least nakatipid ka.

    Nyok! 😀

  2. Tama si sir Fitz, bigay mo nalang sa mag-aayos ng SSS mo ‘yong half. Huwag mo ng asahan si mandu, nde na magpakita sa’yo at malamang nasa basurahan na ang wallet mo.

    Nakakapanghinayang talaga ung Brothers Burger na stamp card, isipin mo 2 stamps na lang free Brothers Pounders na! 😀

    Kaya sa susunod maghire ka na ng private guard mo kse marami ng nakakakilala sa’yo… at alam na rin nila na marami ka ng pera… :mrgreen:

  3. I think the snatcher will be too damn scared to meet you again…thinking it’s a setup or something…

    Thanks for posting, now I know it takes ages to get an SSS card…

  4. Sir Jez,

    Why you need the SSS id. Pasensya na sa tanong ko kasi ang isang purpose lang ng sss id para sa aking ay ang mag loan.If you have 1,000 USD for a ransom I think to wait for 6 months is still ok.
    (comment ko lang po yan)


    Tama ka po sa singapore kasi walang ganyan. And paglapag na pag lapag ng eroplano pagkagaling ko ng singapore binalik ko na din ang state of mind ko na..

    May mga mandurukot at masasamang loob. Anyway, minsan sir tinatapon nila yung mga wallet with all the cards attached. I once have my wallet pickpocket too in laguna then somebody send me a snailmail that she have my wallet together with the SSS ID and driver’s license. I hope someone will have your wallet return.


    • I feel incomplete without it eh. Dami kasi transactions na kelangan yun at yun lang ang valid ID ko. hehehe 😀

      at ang hirap kumuha ngayon ng SSS ID kaya gusto ko mabalik siya kaagad. hehehe :mrgreen:

      kahit bayaran ko ang taga SSS ok lang. Kaso wala me kakilala. waaaaah!

      • aw.. may passport naman me.. valid ID din yun.. hehe. pero ewan ko ba parang gusto ko parin yung SSS.. napa mahal na sa akin yun eh.. pati yung stamp card ng brothers burger. 😯

      • mali pala ako..nag snail mail sya na nasa kanya yung wallet ko..wala kasing contact details dun sa mga IDs na nandun. I got my wallet pa sa alabang…imagine from laguna ako nag wowork that time tapos sa alabang tinapon yung wallet ko.. I hope you recover your wallet

      • hopeless na ako sa wallet. baka binenta nya na yung wallet ko. May kamahalan din yun kaya sayang din. Pero yung habol ko nalang now is yung SSS ID at yung Brothers Burger na stamp card, kasi malapit ko na ma kumpleto yun. wahehehe. :mrgreen:

        Thanks clutch :mrgreen:

  5. noong mahold-up bus na sinakyan ko dyan sa batasan, nakuha din ang wallet ko kasama ang TESDA certification, SSS ID at iba ko pang mga ID. Hanggang ngayon di pa rin ako nakakuha ng replacement ng dalwang nabanggit’

  6. Naku.. dapat talaga be aware lalo na sa LRT madami talaga nadudukutan jan araw2.. kaya nga laging may paalala ung operator kada station.. sana ma concensya yang mandurukot at ibalik khit yung SSS ID mo nalang.. Report mo sa SSS at magpa Police Report ka na nawala SSS ID mo baka gamitin sa masama ma damay ka pa.. 🙁

  7. I was also a victim before, wallet din at sa cubao nangyari, hindi yung pera ang mahalaga duon eh, meron pang mas importanteng bagay like yung mga valid ID’s na SSS, drivers licence, ATM card.

    we need to have extra care espcly ngayon nalalapit na naman ang kapaskuhan, maraming namamasko sa masamang paraan, sa pandurukot, holdap ang kung ano ano pang modus operandi ng mga kawatan.

  8. Friend, buti ang virginity mo wala sa wallet o baggage mo no? Ahehehe. Perhaps you need a Girl Friday or bodyguard to take care of things for you? For example, you need someone to handle cash for you – kasi nga madumi ang pera, di ba? O sya na rin maghandle ng plastic money mo. Puede mag apply.

    Natawa ako sa reasons mo why you need your wallet back. The SSS ID I can understand. Pero di ko mapigil mapahalpak ng tawa dun sa Brothers Burger stamp card. Ano ba. Ahehehe.

    Konting ingat, bro. Yun lang. 🙂

    • hahahahaha! napatawa ba kita? hahahaha! seryoso yun. waaaaaaaaaah! BB stamp card.. i need two more stamps. nanghihinayang ako kasi matagal ko pinag hirapan yung stamps.. as in.. 3 months yun. hahahaha!

  9. at hindi pa rin talaga nagbabago ang kapalaran ng maraming Pilipino.. marami pa rin sa atin ang nadudukutan.. tsk tsk.. kung isang internet savvy ang nakadukot ng wallet mo, masaya yun ngayon sa reward mo. pero kung hindi, sayang yung SSS ID mo.. hehehe…

  10. sarap mo palang pagnakawan.. aaww! meron pang reward! hahahha :mrgreen:

    seriously, mahirap nga ang mawalan ng SSS ID.. kaya nga ako sobrang pinag-iingatan ko ito… korek ka dun sa sinabi mong ito lng ang tanging valid ID mo.. paano ka na ngaun kukuha ng earnings, tama? tsk, tsk, tsk…

    hayaan mo, kapag naligaw sa aming lugar ung wallet mo, kukunin ko ung brothers burger coupon mo at hihingin ko na ung reward sau agad! hehehhe ayt! 😀

  11. i know its supposed to be a serious stuff but cant help but laugh at the mention of Brothers Burger stamp card being very important ..hehe typical pinoy.. though i wish u would be able to retrieve ur SSS ID, i doubt if that snatcher would be reading your blog ….. but you’ll never know.. weirder things had happened in this world.. thanks 4 a nice article and good luck!

    • hahahaha.. nag iisang valid id ko yun maawa ka. waaah! buti nalang may passport na me woooooot! salamat ulit sa burger king! sayang yung stamp card ko dalawang stamps nalang.. Minimum 500php pa naman each stamp. grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

  12. Dear Jehz,

    I have your SSS ID, please send the US$1,000.00 to my Paypal Account muna. Walang bawian ah! :p


    ps It’s times like these that make buying a car seem more like an investment rather than a money sink. 🙂

    Go buy your car na. 🙂

  13. Marami na talagang mapagsamantala ngayon dahil malapit na pasko. Nangyari din sa’kin yan two years ago, nakuha din SSS ID ko pati pera, ayun hindi na binalik kahit ID, aanuhin kaya niya yun. Actually kahit hindi magpapasko marami talagang snatcher dyan sa LRT.

  14. OMG ang laki ng ransom! teka ako huhunting dun sa snatcher na yun para sa’kin mapunta yung SSS ID!! 😛

    sobrang laking halaga ng kapalit, dapat dun isetup na lang para mabawasan din ang mga kriminal sa bansa natin..

    or hanap ka na lang din ng kakilala sa SSS para hindi ka na gagastos ng $1K para sa kriminal, palakad ka na lang ng bago sa kakilala kahit magbayad at least tipid pa! hehehe

    good luck!! ^__^

  15. Kaya dapat talaga dobleng ingat tayo ngayong malapit na ang Pasko mas dadami ang gagawa nyan. Sana nga marunong sa Google yung lekat na yun at hindi Yahoo lols. Sana bumalik aba sayang ang $1k! Oo aamin na ako, ako ang kumuha hahahaha

  16. d b delikado un? try k nlng kumuha ng replacemnt. for the meantime, pwde mo naman gamitin ung passport mo as valid ID. or kuha k ng postal ID.

    • yep yep. process ko na replacement. mga isang taon to bago matapos.. hehehe.. la lang nag baba sakali lang na nabasa ng snatcher at maibalik nya yung id at yung stamp card at malaman nya gaano ka importante sa akin yun. 😥

  17. teka, nangyayari din nmn ito sa ibang bansa, pero if I’m not mistaken, not in Singapore or madalang lng.

    yng TIN ID nga din ngayon, pili nlng yng binibigyan, pag ala ka pang backer di ka makakauha. wooot! di ba dapat libre yun? hahahaha.

    • wooot! pati TIN mahirap na? Buti may TIN ako.. madali lang din gawin yung TIN kasi parang papel lang siya na pwede mo ipa laminate.. wahehe.. may PSD file nga ako ng TIN.. haha.. basta ang importante may TI Number. Yun lang.

      Pero may bago ang TIN card? Plastic na ba di na papel? waaah! 😮

      • madali lang yung tin. nakuha ko yung akin last week in 20 minutes. 🙂

        one year na ako dito sa makati…pero di pa naman ako minalas…hehe. mabilis ang karma. makakarma yung snatcher ng bonggang bongga.

      • aww.. yeah madali lang ata talaga yung TIN. may TIN nga ako ako lang nag print kasi nawalan ako dati. Papel lang kasi yung TIN na naka laminate. wahehehe 😆

  18. Naexperience ko n rin yan.. I lost my phone at Pgil station papasok ng office, nung gabi ko pa nalaman na nanakaw n sakin kasi akala ko naiwan ko lang sa bahay. ingat nalang po tayo sa susunod . 😀

    pwede po paadd ako sa inyong “Cool New Friends”? 😀 salamat

  19. Ingat palagi Jehz! Where did you put your wallet? In my case, I don’t put my wallet in my back pocket. Laging nasa harap and most of the time, nilalagay ko kamay ko sa bulsa ko when I’m riding MRT or LRT lalo na pag siksikan.

    Yeah, I agree with the SSS ID card. It also took me months just to get it. I know how important SSS ID is for you as a jonb slacker. 🙂

  20. ingat na lang palagi..mga snatcher talaga sa pinas walang patawad..sana nga ibalik un ss id man lang o else you need to get a replacement..

  21. Paps! kung ako snatcher, uulit ulitin kong nakawin SSS mo! LOL hahahahaha pero kidding aside prepare for the worse bro, and process a new one na kaagad instead of waiting in vain. Goodluck!

  22. Sad news naman! Ingat lagi Jehz.

    Lets hope and pray na me mag-magandang loob na magbalik yang SSS ID mo sa mga awtoridad. Yung kapatid ko naiwan nya wallet/card holder nya sa taxi, pero good thing me nakapulot at ibinigay sa GMA7, tapos me tumawag na taga-GMA-7 na kumontak sa kanya after 1~2 weeks.

  23. nakakainis nga yung mga ganyan, time consuming kasi kumuha ng SSS ID. Gigising ng maaga, pipila ng mahaba, tapos pabalik balik pa. Tapos kelangan pa mag file ng leave. Sakit sa ulo.

  24. Sad to know your story. Na-experience ko rin yan. Dalawang beses pa. Yung una, pentax camera na isyu ng company for our magazine. I will not forget it happened at the Kilometer Zero at the Luneta Park. At ang pangalawa sa Pier 15. I lost my leather wallet together with my company ID, Medicard ID and the most important, my family’s photograph and the pics of my wife when I was still courting her.

  25. The last time I went to SSS, they said it’s going to take a while for me to get my ID because the machine broke down and they are still printing the 2006 ID’s 🙄 Well, it’s Christmas soon, probably working hard in time for the Noche Buena.

  26. That’s a sad one jehz. I know the feeling kasi na-snatch na rin wallet ko before. Luckily, di ko nilalagay sa wallet ko ung mga importanteng ID ko like SSS ID, voter’s ID, etc. Mas safe kasi kung iiwan na lang sa haus for safe keeping. Saka ko lang sila dinadala pag kailangan.

    Just an advise, bro. A $1000.00 is a lot to offer online. Baka maging favorite target ka ng mga “not so good guys” pag lumalabas ka.

    File ka na lang ng replacement sa SSS. Medyo matagal ang process pero sure naman diba.

    • Thanks sa advise Paulo. Yep yep nag babakasakali lang ako baka mabasa at mabalik agad ng snatcher. yun lang. hehehe. pero malabo na ata. woooooot! mag papa tulong nalang ako sa mga kakilala ko para mas mabilis. I think aabutin ng 1 to 2 years ang bagong SSS ID ko kasi sira pa machine ng SSS now. *sigh*

  27. thanks for the info, tagal n pala mgissue ng sss ngaun hehe, ito pa naman lagi ko pinpresent sa mga inst. pra no hassle. anyway, kung kelangan mo pansamantala ng valid id hbang wala kang sss, kuha k ng voters un sigurado release agad ni mayor! dagdag botante!

  28. nakakalungkot naman yan pre.. may mga salbahe talaga.. ako naman noong college naholdup ng dalawang beses.. extra ingat na lang sa susunod.. hirap talaga ng pila sa gov’t ids.. sana pera na lang nakuha.. tc na lang lagi.

  29. ouch! yan ang ayaw na ayaw kong mararanasan sa buhay ko! ansama sa pakiramdam pero kelangang tanggapin. wala eh! haaay..

    btw, kuya, may alam ka bang webhost na mura lang pero reliable? thanks!

  30. jehz out of topic, pahingi advice. di n naiindex mga new posts ko (khit search ko mismo url wala sila) pero yung dati ng totop p rin. khapon lang ngyari. pati yung ads ko nawala sa niche ng site ko. yun lng naman text links. is it because (ginawa ko to lhat khapon)
    1. ngpalit ako template? (binalik ko n ngaun)
    2. may di sinasadya natagong text link? (kenelangan ko ung script para sa random post link, pero tinago ko sa div width=0)
    3. inaccess ko ung webmaster tools and verified my site for the first time
    4. duplicate meta tags daw sabi sa webmaster tools (inayos ko n rin ngaun, iba ba yung meta keywords sa meta description?)
    or 5. wla lang, at bukas gigising din ako na parang walang ngyari (i experienced this once, di naiindex new posts ko napraning ako nun gabi then kinabukasan ayun sila!)
    thanks thanks jehz!!!
    any advice from other seo experts are appreciated!

    • aw… sana nga mapansin nya post ko.. tsk tsk tsk… kahit less than 0.0001% chance na mabasa nya to may chance parin. Or baka may nakapulot na iba. swerte nya pag nabasa nya post ko. wahehehe :mrgreen:

  31. awww… handang magbigay para lang sa isang ID… para sure dapat kumukuha ka na rin ngayon ng panibago.. para kung wala na talaga ung ID… don’t worry kuya jehz babalik din yan… God bless… 🙂

    • hahaha.. kaw na process ako mag bibigay. basta exact replica nung nawala kong ID ha.. wahehehe. + brothers burger stamp card na may 8 stamps = $1,000.00 😀


  32. so sorry to hear that! yan ang pinaka-HASSLE sa lahat…government ID’s. You need Affidavit of Loss to make a new one, but hindi naman super tagal lumabas yung ID ko before when I lost the first one, pero I can’t remember how long. Good luck sa ID and mukhang hopeless na to get it back 😉

    • hahaha.. pareho tayo, tinatamad na din ako.. talagang there’s nothing constant in this world but change.

      Sabi ko dati sa sarili ko hinding hindi ako mag sasawa sa ragnarok eh.. Ngayon tinatamad na ako mag laro. hehehe. 😮

  33. Malamang di marunong magbasa or mag internet yung snatcher pero binigyan mo ako ng magandang idea…

    Lost and Found na website para sa mga snatchers ng Metro Manila… pwede! Isipin mo na lang sa gov’t ID section pa lang malaki na kikitain nung site na yun.

  34. baka may taga SSS na nagbabasa din ng blog, baka mapabilis niya yung SSS ID processing mo… hehehehe. yun nalang bigyan mo ng $1000.. tsk.tsk.

    • Hehehe… Send ka muna ng picture ng SSS ko pati nung brothers burger stamp card 😯

      Sali mo na din yung Singtel Sim card ko na nasa wallet, para di na me bili ulit. hehe :mrgreen:

  35. ang swerte namang snatcher yan, may $1k pa reward! hehehe, dukutan kita jehz pag nagkasalubong tayo. :)…

    ako man sa MRT cubao, nasnatchan.. immediately, pina lock ko ung credit card ko.. good thing after few days, may nagreport sa office na nakita sa guadalupe station wallet ko, complete with all IDs and ATMs… good thing di na ko nag apply ulit ng SSS, driver’s license etc… Hoy snatcher! Php46,450 din un! soli mo na! 🙂

    • hehehehe. swerte mo naman at nakita pa wallet mo. Parang singapore lang ah. hehehehe.. woooooooot!

      Sna mabasa ng snatcher to. Or isang nag tatrabaho sa SSS sa ID department. hehe

  36. I suggest get a new SSS card, state your case & they might consider it. Siguro o baka pede mag-add ng fees for rush processing, magpa-pasko na at baka pumayag, heheh. Ewan ko ba bakit ganyan satin eh nagbabayad naman tayo. Parang ung driver’s license ko, ni-renew ko at di ko nakuha bago ako umalis ng pinas at nakuha ko nung nagbakasyon uli ako. 😕

  37. what? oh noes~ >.< that’s bad and hope the snatcher still have good heart to return your SSS ID. we all know *sorry for me saying this :3, I hope no one gets angry with me when I say this* that majority here in PH pagnakakita ng pera nanakaw at di na sosoli, or kung ndi naman nakita ung pera is malikot ang kamay at mahilig lang magsnatch :3 and some good people here get affected ~.~

    But Jehz, I agre with Erick, get a new one, instead waiting for nothing 🙂 kahit medyo matagal basta you will have your SSS ID lang 🙂 and also try ask if they can rush, tell them your situation and you need it asap, baka pwede 🙂

  38. Merry christmass kay idol jehz…. nagpadala na ako kay santa ng wish list kasama na dun ang sss card mo… nagbabasakali baka pag bigyan ang over age na katulad ko 🙂

  39. Would you mind making a blog of protest about the friendliest countries listed by Forbes?Well its weird Philippines is not in the top 10 list.You make a critical think about that!Happy Holidays!

  40. sana dumatng dito sa maasin city, southern leyte wallet mo at ako makakita waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa 😛 kuya jehz pano pa encash adbrite check? 😀 sayang naman nito d ko ma encash 😳 🙁

    • Hello, sorry hindi ko na na asikaso yung Samsung post ko, busy kasi. 🙁 If you want to buy, you can send an SMS to me +639105555515 para ma process ko order u. :mrgreen:

  42. Hi Jehz.. although it’s too late for me to reply. I still want to say something. Snatchers is always around in our country. Sakit na ata ito sa ating Bansa. There is an old story nga eh. Na malalaman mo na nasa Quiapo kana pag wala ka ng relo sa kamay :mrgreen: Regarding your SSS, sa tingin ko tinapon nya na un. Kinukuha lang nila kung ano pinakikinabangan nila. Pero kung ako nakakuha noon. I will look for you and will not ask for a reward. I will just be happy if you can help me improve my blog. I send you sms hope you reply soon. Thanks

  43. Too bad! Thats why when I went to Manila last January, I am really vigilant to my surroundings, specially sa mga strangers na nakikita!
