Bistado! Fake lawyer arrested in Caloocan
A fake lawyer was arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in Caloocan City.
According to news reports, the suspect named Edgardo Rodriguez was offering notary and legal marriage services and getting paid for them even if he isn’t a true lawyer.
What’s worse—he was even using the name of another abogado in his illegal practice.
“Ang usapan namin… mag-notarize ako, mga affidavit of loss, kung ano-ano pa. And then bibigyan niya ako ng document number,” Rodriguez said.
Turns out, there was no agreement, and the lawyer reported Rodriguez to the police.
