Manila: Days after video footage of a high school student bullying a schoolmate was circulated online, an address erroneously identified as being that of the minor involved has been flooded with online orders and deliveries.
The owner of the home under siege has pleaded with residents not to send any more items at her cost.
“Please stop buying or ordering things online to be delivered to our address,” Jewel Taculod wrote on her Facebook account as she uploaded screengrabs showing online orders scheduled to be delivered to her residence.
Her address is being mistaken to be the residence of a high school student from the Ateneo de Manila in Quezon City who recently appeared in videos challenging schoolmates to fights and physically assaulting them.
The boy, identified as a Joaquin Montes, is a Taekwondo champion and has been lambasted online for his physical aggressiveness, unsporting conduct and was labelled a “bully” by netizens.
But Taculod said those who are infuriated by the boy’s actions have been venting their ire through malicious online orders to the wrong household.
71fake accounts for Joaquin Montes had sprung up on Facebook.
In her post, Taculod said that deliveries amounting to thousands of pesos from two fast-food chains as well as gadgets from online merchants were being sent to their address.
He said people with ill intentions had apparently created a “fake account,” at their expense.
According to the Philippine National Police, it had been discovered by their Anti-Cybercrime Group that at least 71 accounts for Joaquin Montes had sprung up on Facebook.
Montes’ actions have cost him his place at the prestigious school.
On Sunday, Ateneo de Manila president Father Jose Ramon Villarin said Montes had been expelled from the school.
“After a thorough investigation that included listening to all parties involved, the decision of the administration is to impose the penalty of DISMISSAL on the student caught bullying another student in the comfort room of the school,” Villarin said at the university’s Facebook page.
