A Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) credit card holder was charged a total of P95,000 from allegedly fraudulent transactions at Starbucks.

In a post on Monday, September 19, Facebook user Marga Sicat claimed:


"This is alarming! Be careful guys, my BPI credit card was charged Php 95,000 from Starbucks coffee Makati (i don't know where exactly in Makati) It's now under investigation. I did not receive any notification. I'm not a starbucks lover, i pay cash as payment but as far as i remember i registered my CC for uber and Spotify subscription. #Fraud #BPICreditcard"
