1 ESTAFA CASE on Fri Mar 16, 2012 5:03 pm

Arresto Menor
Hi Atty. Hope you could help me better understand what's happenning as I have sleepless nights due to this.

A case was filed against me last year 2010, we were scheduled 2 prel inv. I attended both. After our ist P.I., the complainant told me to go to their house so that we could settle. I did! we had an arrangement and agreed to it. the amount filed was 30K and what they want me to pay out of court was 65K. I agreed also but this was done only in their house. On the second P.I., I'm the only one who attended, the complainant didnt. I presented the document that me and the complainant agreed but was not accepted by the prosecutor. The prosecutor told me to come back and let the complainant come back also. This was only a verbal instruction and I informed the complainant. The complainant didnt come back so do I, all she said was "di na yan lalakad kasi di naman ako mag aappear".So without due knowledge of law, all I assumed then was its OK already. I was surprised to know that when I applied for NBI clearance, I have a criminal case and a warrant of arrest was already issued last year. The complainant dont want to file an affidavit to dismiss the case because I'm not yet fully paid. On the case filed my liability was only 30K, I already paid them a total of 50K as of today.

Atty, please help me on this. I dont know what to do. Will I post a cash bond? I dont have enough money and as per complaint I'm paid na with the 30K. So is it possible to be dismissed even if I agreed on the 65K? Thanks.

your best remedy is to file bail then go through all the hearings until it is provisionally dismissed then finally dismissed after 1-2 years because no complainant appeared.

Thank you Atty.

But I'm religiously paying the complainant and they are aware of the situation. Hopefully I can fully pay them the 65K in three months time.

If I will follow the amount involved in the complaint which is 30K, I am fully paid already. According to them they will only file an affidavit of desistance once I'm already fully paid.

If I am to post a bail, will I still continue to pay them? or I'll wait for the hearing to be set?

Thanks.

Hi Atty, I need your advice. I was fired in my job because of the store that I am managing got robbed. And As the building is under reconstruction I am the only one holding the key so all hands are pointing on me,I have attended several times of P.I and I got fired on my job also. After six months I received a note that is telling they are opening my case and they said that the robbery incident was just a remake and now they said that they will sue me a case of estafa.I am really afraid because P 320 thousand is a big money. And I also wanted to work again.

Please answer the following:

1. How many employees does the store have?

2. Ano ang nangyari sa case for robbery against you? Ano ang sabi ng fiscal?

3. I don't think they can sue you for estafa. But, anong note ang nakuha mo? Subpoena ba?

Good day po Atty. Need your advice po, hindi napo kasi ako mkatulog kc ngwworry po ako sa pwedeng mangyari. Kmi pong magasawa ay isa sa mga investor ng isang kompanya. Kami po yung nakatoka para mgprocess ng mga legal docs ng company namin.. ngbigay po samin yung partner namin ng 1.8M with receiving paper para pamprocess ng mga docs. Yung din po yung ginamit naming pambayad dun sa tao namin na nglalakad ng mga papel.. after ilang months, binigay napo samin ng tao namin yung mga doc at binigay po namin dun sa partner namin.. nung minsan po na pinacheck namin yung docs, we found out that documents were all fake. Since then, hindi napo namin mahanap yung tao na ngprocess ng docs namin. My nakapagsabi po samin na nasa ibang bansa sya pero hindi kami sigurado. Sa kagustuhan po namin na maopen ung business namin, pinaprocess po namin ulit yung mga docs namin. Pero nagagalit napo sa amin yung partner at nawalan ng tiwala sa amin dahil iniisip nya na mgkakontsaba kami nung taong nglakad ng papel naming since kami ang ngpalakad nun. Pinagawa po nya ng isang agreement or parang promissory note yung asawa ko indicating n kapag hindi naopen ang business namin, kailangan naming sha bayaran ng 4M pero kung mgopen naman po eh waived yung agreement na un.. Ang tanong ko lang po atty ay ganito. Ano po ang pwede naming gawin? 1. Paano po ba namin mahahabol yung nglakad ng docs namin na nanloko samin? 2. Pde po ba kami mgfile ng case against sa knya gamit lang po ang name,surname at pic nya po? 3. At ano po ang pwede naming ifile na case sa knya? 4. With regards naman po dun sa partner namin, ano pong case ang pwede nyang ifile against naman po samin? 5. Yung asawa ko po at partner namin ay parehong foreigner so yung mga agreement at receipts nila is written in their language, valid po ba un gamitin sa Philippines or dapat dun po sya mgfile ng case sa bansa nila? Please help me po atty. Thank you very much po..

you have to write a letter to inform him that the check was dishonored and find a way to personally deliver it to him.

Hi! My father had a joint checking account with a colleague, which they opened for convenience and expediency, since his colleague is tasked to find an investor to finance their participation in the bidding for 2 projects. My father is the authorized officer of the company that is qualified to bid for these projects. Considering that it's a joint checking account and they were pressed for time in complying with the financial requirements in bidding for the projects, my father entrusted to his co-signatory signed blank joint account checks.

Afterwards, he found out that his co-signatory issued their joint account checks to a third person (the "Investor") from whom his co-signatory personally owed money (in millions). This Investor released P500,000 for the purchase of bidding documents and bonds months before my father's co-signatory issued their joint account checks.

Upon finding out about the issuance to the Investor of their joint account checks, my father met with the Investor and his co-signatory to object to the issuance of the checks, the amount, and the maturity date of the checks. After some discussion, co-signatory and the Investor convinced and assured my father that the checks were issued (and received by the Investor) merely as guarantee that should the company my father represented win the contract for the 2 projects and the mobilization fund is released to the company, the Investor will be entitled to the sum represented by the checks which shall be deductible from the co-signatory's share (the service fee for finding a financier), return of her P500,000 INVESTMENT (no agreement that this sum is refundable in case they do not win the bidding), and she will be entitled to sub-contract the projects for a percentage of the contract price for work accomplished.

Unfortunately, out of the 2 contracts, the company my father represented was awarded with only 1. The Investor, however, told them that she is not interested if she will be sub-contracting only for 1 of the 2 projects. So their relationship ended.

Years thereafter, when my father attempted to get his NBI clearance, he found out that he and his co-signatory were sued by the Investor for BP 22 and Estafa by issuing bum checks. Upon finding out, he voluntarily submitted himself to the jurisdiction of the court (home town of the Investor) and pleaded not guilty.

Per Investor's testimony in open court, my father found out that his co-signatory replaced their joint account checks with personal checks (of the co-signatory) the same day the Investor went to co-signatory's house to notify her that the joint account checks bounced.

The Investor sued them as conspirators for the joint account checks and the replacement personal checks of the co-signatory.

With the foregoing, may I seek your opinion on: 1) Whether my father can be convicted for estafa under Art 315, par. 2(d) of the RPC even though the Investor testified in open court, more than once, that she released the money MONTHS BEFORE she received the checks and that she released the P3M+ (the total face value of joint account checks) because my father appeared like a good person and she knew they were awarded a contract for a DIFFERENT project (this is true). 2) Despite of the LACK of written notice of dishonor to my father, can the court rule that there was deceit because of the allegations in the complaint-affidavit and the assumption/analysis that being a businesswoman, Investor would not have parted with her money if not deceived by my father. 3) What possible strong legal defenses can my father invoke for the civil liability? 4) Is replacement of the joint account check by the co-signatory, which complainant accepted, with her personal checks of any relevance to our defense? Investor was asked by the judge in open court if she understood, being a businesswoman, that the replacement of the joint account checks and her acceptance of the solo checks of one of the co-signatories meant that she can only go after my father's co-signatory and she categorically responded "Yes".

Would appreciate to know our chances based on your assessment.

Hi Atty! Ang Estafa po dapat may dalawang elemento na di pwedeng mawala diba? Ito po yung 1.) fraud in any form, at 2.) that it the deception / fraud resulted to damages. Pano po kapag nagooperate pa naman ang kompanya at malaki ang kinikita (walang damages), ang perang nakuha ay bilang bayad sa serbisyong nakuha nila; matatawag pa din po ba iyong estafa? Salamat po.
