GCash Secures your Money with then New Customer Protect Program

Mobile wallet and electronic payments make life easier. With that, there's no need to bring cash or better save your cash for other sudden or urgent expenses. GCash is one of my favorite mobile apps. I can send money, cash in, buy load, pay the bills or make purchases using the app. With GCash, I can even save/invest or participate in building Philippine forests with GSave.

GCash, powered by fintech startup Mynt, provides users with increased peace of mind when using the app with the launch of its Customer Protect Program. With that, GCash users are assured of compensation for unauthorized financial transactions on their GCash app, GCash on Messenger or GCash Mastercard platforms arising from instances such as stolen mobile phones or identity theft.

How GCash Customer Protect Program works?

GCASH can analyze and monitor transactions to detect and prevent fraudulent activities using their advanced risk capabilities. GCASH investigates and compensate any unauthorized transactions.

Customer just need to file a report regarding any irregular transaction on GCash’s official customer care channels within 15 days from the date of the said transaction. Eligible and valid disputes can be reversed for amounts of up to P100,000.

“The GCash Customer Protect program is a recourse that our valued users can take should they unfortunately fall prey to physical or virtual theft,” said Anthony Thomas, GCash president and chief executive officer.

The Customer Protect program is a campaign for increased cybersecurity awareness and education, especially regarding full verification of one’s GCash account. As a customer, we need to comply with the verification process of GCash based on the Know-Your-Customer (KYC) mandates of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas as explained by Thomas.

Full verification on GCash requires a user to establish legitimate identity through submission of valid government identification cards and a selfie, as well as a series of mobile phone and contact information verification.

Fully verified GCash users can receive compensation of the actual amount of unauthorized transactions not exceeding P100,000. Semi-verified users can receive compensation up to P10,000 while basic users can receive up to P2,000. GCASH Customer Protect program is an added benefit extended to GCash users.

Philippines to host Asia Pacific 

Predator League 2020

Gamers across the Philippines will have to fight it out to claim the rightful title of champions and collect the local prize pool of a whopping P780,000 in Defense of the Ancients 2 (Dota 2) by Valve and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) by PUBG, Corporation.

The tournament is held annually to give veteran and newbie gamers the fighting chance to the coveted prize. It is also Predator's way of showing its commitment to making the gaming industry thrive and flourish allowing new talents to rise, to aim high, and who always have their eyes on the prize.

Predator League 2020 opens the online registration on Sept. 1, 2019. The fierce and lucky gamers will face each other on a series of 16 regional qualifiers starting Sept. 14, 2019 at TNC Cafes nationwide. The Philippine Grand Finals will then be held on November 30 – December 1, 2019 to determine the best team that will represent the country at the regional APAC Predator League 2020 finals happening here.

The Philippine team showed the world what it's made of when TNC Predator seized the championship title for DOTA 2 at Predator League 2019 held in Thailand.

This year, Predator is the official title sponsor of TNC Dota 2 Pro Team and ArkAngel PUBG Pro Team. Each team was provided with the exceptional tools and devices that they used to step up their game and perform to the best of their ability without having to question their equipment.

Team Arkangel Predator has now become a household name for PUBG and perhaps the youngest team to gain recognition in the Philippine gaming community. Meanwhile, TNC Predator put the Philippines in the esports map by bagging the championship title for Dota 2 at the World Electronic Sports Games (WESG) in Chongqing, China.

Both teams proved their worth by winning game after game pocketing not only the pool money but also the respect of other gamers in the field. Predator League is the most anticipated professional gaming tournament as it is the largest brand-initiated tournament in the Asia-Pacific region.

Gamers in the Philippines are jockeying for position to be able to participate in this tournament not only for the prize money but also because of the prestige it adds to the professional gaming teams.

Holding the tournament in the Philippines is a nod that the country is teeming with skilled gamers who are always ready to compete in the world stage. This also allows the aspiring ones to master the game and polish their skills until they reach a world-class level.

Esports' influence and significance are finally recognized with its inclusion as a medal sport in the coming Southeast Asian Games to be held in Manila this year. Predator's support and constant nudge allowed gamers to assert their place in the whole sporting community.
