More than P70,000 found inside the bag of a homeless woman wandering in Taguig

Do not raise your hand if you also have that much money in your wallet

"Homeless not penniless" was how GMA News described a mysterious woman in Taguig, who was taken in by workers at Barangay Bagumbayan. The workers tried to give the woman a bath and checked her bag for a change of clothes. Inside, they found more than P70,000 in bills and coins.


The woman claims to be from Barangay Malibay in Pasay City and said that the money is savings from "vending" since 1978.


According to her barangay ID, the woman is 54 years old and she is indeed from Malibay. She said that a person named Gina brought her to Taguig but stated that she has no relatives.


For now, the barangay has taken her money for safekeeping and they are waiting for the Department of Social Welfare and Development for instructions.
