MANDAUE CITY, Cebu–Jesson Argabio, 28, is a Cebuano events videographer who recently gained popularity due to his role in a recent viral ‘wedding scam’ post.
Though Argabio was not the owner of the video that showed a bride from Minglanilla town crying in frustration after being ‘scammed’ by their wedding coordinator, he was instrumental in spreading the video that led to the couple receiving free wedding services from netizens and even celebrities.
Argabio said he did his part to let the public know what the scammer did to the couple.
“Para pod ma aware sila,” said Argabio,.
The viral video, which was posted on social media by wedding photographer Mielton Elsisura, reached a number of netizens since the day it was posted on September 22, 2021.
As one of the suppliers who was not paid by the wedding coordinator, Argabio was very vocal in sharing to the media everything he knew about what the latter had done to the newlywed, Cherry Pie Purisma and Arniel Santingasin.
Just days after the incident was reported through different media outlets, a lot of individuals, including actress and businesswoman Neri Naig-Miranda, offered services to the couple aside from the wedding reception venue.
Argabio, who resides in Cebu City and started being an events photographer in 2018, is not new to dealing with the media as he cited that he had worked in the same industry years ago.
