THE wedding coordinator who scammed a couple in Cebu was arrested Thursday afternoon, September 23.
Naser Fuentes, 33, was nabbed at 4:15 p.m. in Sitio Sampaguita, Barangay Casili, Consolacion for an estafa case that was filed in 2013.
His arrest came two days after he scammed couple Cherry Pie Purisima and Arniel Satingasin, residents of Minglanilla, Cebu.
The couple hired Fuentes as wedding coordinator and paid P65,000 but Purisima and Satingasin found out after their church wedding last September 22 that Fuentes had not booked a place for their reception.
A spot report from police stated that the arrest of Fuentes, a resident of Sitio Fatima, Barangay Jagobiao, Mandaue City, was conducted by Mandaue City Police Office personnel.
The police served a warrant for Fuentes’s arrest for the crime of estafa. No bail bond has been recommended. (LMY/With Alan Tangcawan)
