NAGA CITY 6/14/17 (Bicol Standard)--A certain Dr. Briones, who introduced herself as a former business associate of Belo Group of Companies, is now the subject of an investigation after she allegedly sold fake beauty products to PAG-IBIG Naga employees.

Haneda Bermudo-Orante, 41 years old, requested to put on record at the police station that Briones went to their office and presented herself as a doctor from a skin clinic called Bioderma at SM City Naga.

Briones offered assorted beauty product samples, including Alaska Premium Salmon Fish Oil vitamins, sunblock, facial soap, and Orange Green Tea Slimming Juice.

After the purchase, however, they found out through the Internet that said products were fake.

Meantime, they could no longer trace the whereabouts of Briones.

The police said the public must be cautious should the person who introduced herself as Dr. Briones offer beauty products to them.
