People would do everything when it comes to love. Some may go as far as to sacrificing their happiness while there are others who are willing to pay the price just to see their loved ones happy.
This is a similar case for a security guard named Rodel Lizardo. One day, he just woke up that his former flame just used him for money — after she drained all his savings and left him bankrupt with a lot of debts to pay.
Too Much Love
In an episode of Sumbong at Aksyon by popular public servant and host Raffy Tulfo, Rodel asked for help to contact his former girlfriend and live-in partner, Melody Banyola. According to him, he encountered Melody in a clan (group) on Facebook and after a week, they decided to meet. After meeting several times, they agreed to live together.
Melody started asking him for money after telling him that she wants to undergo training to be a policewoman. At first, she is contented in getting his salary and his savings. But money is never enough for the woman. Rodel started borrowing from his cousins by using his ATM as a collateral.
When his girlfriend asked money again, he had to pound his farm in Pangasinan for PHP50,000. Since Melody guaranteed that she is different from other women, Rodel sold the house he bought in Cavite to give her money.
But hold on to your seats: this is not the end of the woman’s request. Melody requested for a motorcycle, to which Rodel happily obliged. She started asking for another one since according to her, she will use it for drag racing. When the poor security guard gave her a cell phone to use, she asked for another one again.
Her requests did not end there. She also demanded a laptop since she will use it for her exams to become a policeman.
Instinct Turned Real
Because of his instincts, Rodel created a new Facebook account to check the account of Melody’s ex-boyfriend. His instincts became real after seeing several photos of Melody’s wedding with her “ex-boyfriend.”
When he confronted the woman, she said that everything was just edited. However, when he tried calling her again, she cannot be contacted.
Help From Raffy Tulfo
Out of pity and respect for Rodel, Raffy guaranteed that Melody will never be able to enter PNP. He also contacted Peter Andaca Jr., the admin officer of Paceer Security Agency where Melody and her husband Eugene are working. Peter confirmed that they are still active and just asked for a leave to get married.
Raffy and Peter came to an agreement for Rodel, Melody, and Eugene to meet on Monday, February 26 to get all of his properties and money. If the couple will not meet the victim, Raffy will do his best for their licenses to be revoked by the Security and Investigation Agencies. Peter also promised that he will cancel their Duty Detail Order and they need to report to him as soon as possible.
Rodel cannot help but feel frustrated and angry, but his love for Melody can still be felt.
Napaniwala mo along nagttraining ka sa Bacolod pa. Tapos binibigyan kita ng suporta yun pala andiyan ka lang pala sa Cavite, naggagwardiya. Kala ko totoo kang tao, yun pala manloloko ka lang pala. Parehas kayong dalawang mag-asawa.
Parehas kayoing dalawang manloloko. Napaniwala niyo akong wala na kayo, yun pala ay nagsasama pa din kayo.

The side of Melody and her husband is still not confirmed since they don’t want to talk to Raffy and his team.
It is such a pity to know that there are people who are used by others for their benefits. Just like Rodel, who was blinded by love, we are hoping that he will get the justice that he deserves.
