GMA News: PSYMAC organizer arrested for estafa


GMA News last night reported that the event that was promoted by a certain Anthony Go in Caramoan turned out to be a “scam”, and the organizer was arrested for charges of estafa. I’m not sure about the accuracy of this news report but we also heard feedback from event participants that the event was a “big mess”.

This event was posted in PinoyMountaineer.com as a third-party event. We have always supported outdoor activities in general. But when doubts began to be cast about the authenticity of the event, we also posted the comments, despite protests from the organizer.

Greater vigilance and scrutiny will doubtless be lessons learned for us. As for the estafa charges, I’m sure Mr. Anthony Go will have a chance to air his side and defend himself in court. We respect this process and will not preempt the judicial process by trying him on a “court of public opinion”. I can understand however that many are angry at him for failing to deliver on his promises.

Kilala ko yung iba sa mga staff nya, alam kong wala silang kinalaman sa scam, pati mga kaibigan ni Anthony Go isinubo nya sa kahihiyan…

HI gid. i apologize for texting you regarding anthony go. My company (Gypsy Accessories & TOAB) is supposed to sponsor his event but i backed out because of some conflicts. he said hes closely working woth pinoy mountaineer regarding PSYMAC. I was asking some questions regarding concept and mileage for my brand pero sabi nya confidential daw. sponsor daw ang habagat pero when I called the owners…hindi daw nila alam yon. some members of FIMO were asking me to complain and yet I thought you are associated with mr. anthony go…Im sorry for that. anyway, its a good thing that everything was clarified and we look forward that mountaineers especially the sirs & maams who participated in PSYMAC will get justice they deserve.

mabuhay po ang pinoy mountaineer. GOD bless!!!
