The e-wallet makes its presence felt overseas as our beloved OFW are now introduced to another mode of fund transferring. Via P2P, OFW’s can now send money to a Philippine bank account with no latency. Remittances made easy by GCash!

Sampaloc Dasmarinas Cavite. The 33-year old De Paz is under investigation for violating RA 8484, or the Access Devices Regulation Act of 1998.

De Paz was caught illegally selling “openline DITO modems” on various Facebook community groups for Cavite-based residents.
