Iglot lead star Claudine Barretto attracted some attention when she was seen crying inside a bank in Quezon Avenue earlier today due to "missing" funds in her account.
The actress, though, wouldn't talk on camera. She told the media to just ask her lawyer, Atty. Agnes Maranan, instead.
According to the lawyer, they arrived at the bank about 11 AM this morning to withdraw cash. They were able to confirm the money was still in the account. The processing of the withdrawal was taking so long, though, and after about thirty minutes, they were informed that the money has already been withdrawn through an inter-branch withdrawal.
The money was in a joint account in the name of Claudine and husband Raymart Santiago. It was an and/or account which means that either of them can make transactions even without the presence of the other.
"I was able to confirm from the teller that the funds were still there and then suddenly, about 40 minutes or 30 minutes later, wala na 'yong funds," the lawyer said.
The bank wouldn't comment on the incident. GMA-7 has also been trying to reach Raymart Santiago but the actor hasn't issued a statement yet.
