I'm more inclined to believe the lotto rigging than the currency manipulation to steal from the OFW's. Exchange rate policies are dictated by the Bangko Sentral. There are no "actual" and "manipulated" exchange rates, if that were the case, it would spell trade/ transaction difficulties in business dealings. The only difference is in the buying and selling rate which is dictated by market forces.
Sa lotto naman, it doesn't sound too far fetched. Heck, pati nga mga magsasaka na halos mamatay na sa gutom sa napakaliit na kita nila ninakawan pa dun sa fertilizer fund scam ni Bolante at FG hindi pinatawad, yung lotto pa kaya?
I dont think this is a legit letter coming from world bank, first no name, who in world bank sent it, if this is true that this is from world bank, WHAT THE HELL DO THEY CARE about our lotto and corrupt administration? globally we are having a crisis, and why would you think they will look at the philippine administration and spend some time to send this to numerous person... flattering mas importante pa pala pilipinas kesa sa crisi na dinadanas ng buond mundo para magsulat ang world bank.
2nd World bank is a very professional institution, they will not make a scam or deal with this kind of situation in this manner. knowing that they are putting a possible WRONG accusation sa gov.
3rd although we know that world bank can get further info that we could imagine, i dont think theyll be spendin some MONEY just to check the philippine goverment, and check the PCSO as well?
mukhang gawa na naman ito ng ISANG masugid na opposition ng administration na wala ng ginawa kungdi mangulo, sorry pero your not helping, your just making it more difficult not to the goverment but to the people...
last... exchange rate are based on the world market... WORLD dealing with WORLD... obvious naman kung iibahin ng pilipinas ang exchange rate. pwede ba yun? ano for example OFW ako nag send ako ng 3K... so mas malaki ang peran makukuha ko dapat kaso kinukurakot ng gov? e sa ibang bansa posted kung magkano ang exchange rate... ano controlado din nila? labo naman nun chong pare dude...
NO OFFENSE MEANT sa lahat ng ka espiya,pero tanong ko lang sa gumawa nyan kung nababasa nya ito, alam ko kurakot ang GOV natin... lahat naman ng GOV. sa buong mundo may kurakot e, bakit yan bang pagpapatalsik mo sa taong nakaupo at pagbibigay daan sa gusto mong umupo ay masisigurado ka bang di mangungurakot?
