There’s a taxi driver who has been using Raffy Tulfo’s name to collect donations. He is even acting as ‘fixer’ at TV5, much to the veteran broadcaster’s anger.
There are thousands of people who line up outside TV5 every day, in hopes that they could seek help from Raffy Tulfo in Action. Meanwhile, there are millions of people who await the episodes that the program uploads on YouTube and Facebook.
It is not surprising that Raffy Tulfo is one of the most popular figures these days, with many people calling him as ‘Idol’ wherever he goes. Tulfo is known for his iron fist and fast action on issues, particularly those that need quick attention.
But there are some people who are trying to make money from Tulfo’s popularity. Such as the taxi driver who was recently discovered by the team to be collecting donations from overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) using Tulfo’s name.
What angered Tulfo even more is that this taxi driver, identified as Johnel Sese De Guzman, is part of the Radyo Singko Taxi Squad. He is supposed to be part of the people who help others in need and be the “eyes and ears” for Radyo Singko, yet he is the one scamming the OFWs and those seeking help at TV5.
It can be recalled that Tatay Alexander Gutal went viral over the encounter with ‘Alyas Linda’. De Guzman used this to collect money from OFWs, claiming that Tulfo made him seek donations from OFWs. He even shared photos of him wearing his Radyo Singko Taxi Squad uniform and having selfies taken with Tulfo. There were also photos of Tulfo’s family and brothers.
But his scheme was discovered by the Tulfo team – and he was stripped of his Radyo Singko Taxi Squad uniform.
Tatay Alexander’s son revealed that De Guzman also acts as ‘fixer’; though it is unsure whether he actually has real contacts at TV5 who help him fulfill his promises to those he approach at the queue.
