Scammers come in many guises. Do you think yourself adroit enough to avoid them? And how do you survive an investment scam?
These are the questions posed by GMA’s latest afternoon prime offering “The Missing Husband.”
It follows the story of a couple, Anton (Rocco Nacino) and Millie (Yasmien Kurdi), who ventured to work abroad to save money for their future.
However, Millie got pregnant, requiring them to fly back home.
The two will then sign up for an investment opportunity as offered by Brendan (Joross Gamboa) a trusted friend.
Anton invests all their life savings and invites several others to join. Alas, it was too late when they found out that it was a scam.
This will cause conflict in their marriage.
But that is not all.
Things become more complicated when Anton suddenly vanishes, leaving blood all over their kitchen.
Did someone silence him? Did he leave Millie to try and escape the mess he started?
Yasmien believes the show is an eye-opener.
Rocco, who actually fell victim to fraudsters in real life prior, deems it timely.
“Marami na talagang scammers ngayon and you will never know until it’s too late,” he said.
