MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – GCash has always been a household word when it comes to financial transactions, bill payments and fund transfers. It is the Philippines’ answer to Visa, Mastercard or American Express, sans the credit check or proof of employment and source of income.
But GCash has been plagued by computer and technical glitches that have upset many account holders who have mysteriously lost money in their fund balances or were unable to access the online app.
So the beleaguered company is doing some serious damage control so as not to lose its millions of customers.
It is re-branding and changing its name to GCrash.
