A FORMEE call center agent who allegedly posed as a project holder at the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) was arrested for extortion in an entrapment in Angeles City.

Region 3 CIDG chief Col. Norberto Delmas identified the arrested suspect as Carli Pe, 51, of Bgy. Mabiga, Mabalacat City, Pampanga.

Agents of the Angeles City CIDG nabbed the suspect based on a complaint by Gennievive Austria, 35, executive secretary of Baguio-based JJJ-A Construction and Supply and resident of Blk. 51, Fresno Residences in Angeles City.

Austria told police that Pe introduced himself as a project holder affiliated with the CDC.

The suspect allegedly said the company will win the bidding in exchange for a certain amount of money.

However, after the victim allegedly paid Pe she found out the suspect was not connected with the CDC.

When the suspect asked for another payment, the victim sought assistance from the CIDG, which launched an entrapment that led to the arrest of Pe inside a fast food chain in Angeles City.

Delmas said the suspect will be charged with violation of Article 293 of Art. 294 or robbery-extortion.
