You can now file a complaint with the public prosecutor after the barangay chairman issued its brgy resolution.

In the place where the transaction occurred. It should be in the exact location where you lend the money to her. That place should acquire jurisdiction.

Although this question was posted in 2012, nonetheless I would still render my legal opinion on the matter.

First, based on your narrative, the correct case that could be filed against your kumare is for collection of sum of money and/or damages.

Please take note that Estafa is committed by the following means:

1. By UNFAITHFULNESS or ABUSE OF CONFIDENCE;

2. By DECEIT;

3. By FRAUDULENT MEANS


1. “Estafa through unfaithfulness or abuse of confidence” is done by:

(a)  Altering quality, quantity and substance of subject matter of contract;
(b)  Misappropriating or converting goods/property of another;
(c)  Taking advantage of a signature in blank

2. “Estafa through deceit or fraudulent acts.”

Estafa through deceit or fraudulent acts executed prior to or simultaneously with the commission of the fraud is done by:

(a)  Using fictitious name as means of deceit;
(b)  Altering quality, fineness or weight of anything pertaining to art or business;
(c)  By issuing unfunded checks or postdated checks;
(d)  Availing of services of hotel, inn, restaurants etc. without paying therefor.

3.  “Estafa through fraudulent means” is done by:

(a)  Inducing another, by means of deceit, to sign any document;
(b)  Resorting to some fraudulent practice to ensure success in a gambling game;
(c)  Removing, concealing, or destroying, in whole or in part, any record, office files, document and other papers.

If your kumare committed any of the foregoing means, then you can file an Estafa case. However, if her acts were not among those enumerated above, then you can only file a civil case for collection of sum of money and/or damages against her.

Hi po magandang araw po. Magtatanung lang po ako kung mabisa na po bang ibedensya para sa kasong estafa kapag pumirma po siya sa aming kasunduan na inaamin niyang nagamit yung perang ininvest ko sa kaniya sa halagang 50,000 at may tubong 70,000?Ganito po kasi yan inengganyo niya po ako na mag invest sa kanya ng pera dahil meron po siyang negosyong pabango. Tutubo daw po ako once na nag invest ako. Parang ako po naging financer niya sa kaniyang negosyo dahil ang dahilan niya po sa akin wla siyang puhunan.Nag start po ako magbigay ng pera noong May 2015.Buong buwan ng May okei pa po transaksyon namen hanggang sa sumapit na ang June 2015. Nagdahilan na siya na yung pera namen ay doon na nia pinapahulog sa atm account ng pinagkukunan niya ng perfume dahil natatakot na daw po siya magdala ng malalaking pera may umaaligid daw po kasi lage sa bahay niya.Hanggang sa nagduda na po ako at pinipilit ko na kunin yung pera ko tapos ang sabi niya sakin ginastos daw nung taong may hawak ng atm.Pero natuklasan ko po na walang alam yung tinutukoy niyang tao at napatunayan namen na siya lang ang gumastos nung pera namen.Kaso nung nagbigay po ako sa kaniya ng pera wala po kameng anumang kasulatan o resibo na kinuha niya ang pera ko.Hanggang naka isip po ako ng paraan para qng sakaling ilaban ko ang kaso may panghahawakan ako.Pinapirmahan ko sa kaniya na inaamin niya na nagastos niya ang pera sa halagang nabanggit sa taas simula sa buwan ng September.Hulog hulugan daw niya bayaran sa loob ng walong buwan ganyan po ang nakasaad sa kasunduan namen saka po pinapirmahan ko din po yung computation ko sa perang inaasahan ko.Madami po kameng naloko aabot po kame ng sampong katao at ang lalaki din po ng perang nainvest nila.Tanung ko lang po kung kakasuhan po namen siya may posibilidad po ba na makulong siya base sa ibedensiyang meron kame?Nagpa brgy na po kame kaso wala din po siya naibayad samen.Anu po ba ang dapat namin gawin?
