So the police officers immediately went on to find this black fan which according to Trending News Portal carried five men, three of them are said to be foreigners.

Worried relatives of the victim immediately went to Carbon Police Station to report her alleged kidnapping after reportedly receiving a Facebook message from the victim’s profile saying “STOP FINDING THIS WOMAN OR ELSE I’LL KILL HER IF [YOU] KEEP ON CHAT AND CALLING I WILL KILL HER.”

Kristel then admitted she lost the 4,000 pesos cash entrusted to her by a college dean. The money was from the proceeds of books sold to students and because of too much pressure by the dean to produce the money, she made up a story that she was kidnapped.
