Keep your friends close and your enemies closer; that is how the saying goes. But how would you react if you discovered that your friend and your enemy are one and the same? Such was the case in this story of a woman who discovered that her friend had stolen her iPhone.
Christine Dapiton considers Maria Angela Licayan her friend. Being no stranger to each other, Dapiton left her bag with Licayan, trusting her to keep watch over it. When she discovered that she lost her iPhone, Dapiton asked for a copy of the CCTV footage from the establishment that they were both at, without having the slightest hint that the cellphone thief was none other than Licayan.
Imagine Dapiton’s shock when she saw the footage that depicted Licayan rummaging through her bag and stealing her iPhone. Betrayal is truly a tough pill to swallow.
Dapiton expressed her disbelief in a Facebook post which has now gained a total of 1.4 million views, 2,500 reacts and 1,000 shares. In her post, she asked for help from netizens to locate Licayan. Dapiton also emphasized that she was posting about her experience not just to find Licayan but also to warn others about her.
A lot of netizens expressed their mixed reactions towards the theft and many were pointing out their stand about having “trust issues.”
