We try to contact her again for many times and trying to search in the internet in any social networking sites that we can find her. She still hiding and and running her Debt to us. As the Baranggay Officials given instruction to us that they will issue a letter so that we can proceed a File a legal Action against her.

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?

Hi Attorney!

Magandang umaga po. Nais ko lang po isangguni if paano ko makakapag file ng case sa kaibigan ko.
She loan in a bank with the amount of 110K principal amount ang i'm the grantor. Instead of her name was in the PN, name ko yun nakalagay. we agreed that she will take the responsible for the monthly payment which is it her responsibility.
But she missed out 3 consecutive payments and it cause more trouble to me, the bank file a legal case upon my name. Bago lumala yun gulo isettle it to the bank and paid all fees. Wala kasi ginagawang paraan yun friend ko para bayaran yun. And i contacted her . Now she owe me 130, 000. 00 because if paid the whole loan in the bank. After that meron akong ginawang loan agreemenet and demand agreement for use and she signed it. In demand agreement if she missed out 2 consecutive payment I have the rights to file a case. On January 2017, she paid only 5000.00 and after that she doesnt pay again until this moment. What case should i file and what are the steps for me to to file it?


Thanks,
Rose

Collection of a sum of money. Serves you right, next time never lend your name as a guarantor ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE FRIENDS. That never really ends well.

Hi Attorney,

I have this college classmate. Way back, nakapag hawak na po kasi kami ng pera together, ung pera ng organization namin. In short mejo nagka tiwala ako sakanya pagdating sa pera. Kaya nung last March 2017, parehas na kaming working, nag chat sya sakin kung gusto ko daw bang maging financer sa business nya. Nag ssupply daw sya ng feeds sa farm. Nagbigay ako saknya ng 17500 and supposedly ang term namin ay 45 days lang. Nung kinukuha ko na pera ko after 45days, pinaikot nya pala ulit, and that was without my knowledge. So dapat after 90 days ibabalik nya na pera ko. Kaso hanggang ngayon, almost 5months na, di nya pa binabalik pera ko. Marami syang reason. Di ko alam kung reason or palusot na lang. Nag suffer na ako, kase ung expenses ko na dapat iccover ng pera ko na nasa kanya, kinailangan ko pang mangutang sa iba para lang matustusan ko kase di nya na binabalik pera ko. Ano po bang dapat kong gawin? Wala kaming written na kasunduan. Pero lahat ng usapan namin nasa chat history ko pa. Ung pera na binigay ko saknya, dineposit ko sa bank at nasakin pa ung deposit slip. Alam ko hindi naman sobrang laking ng pera ko, but still that is mine, pinag hirapan ko, and definitely NOT hers to keep. Kailangan ko din kase dahil nakalaan na sa isang importanteng bagay un. One time "panggap" pa syang ang deposit sya ng cheke sa account ko. Pero nagtataka ako ilang araw na wala paring na ccredit sakin, kahit sa current balance ko man lang. Nung nag follow up ako saknya ng paulit ulit, nag send sya ng picture ng cheke na bigay nya kuno sa bangko, may note ng red pen, na hindi match ung amount in figure and in word kaya di na deposit, dito na ako nag start magduda saknya e. Saka, ang alam ko di allowed ang mga teller na sulatan ang cheke kahit pa may mali dito. I am thinking of filing a complaint against her. Ano po ba ang gagawin ko? Sana po matulungan nyo ako.

15 Possible estafa case on Tue Oct 03, 2017 9:24 am

I'd like to get some advice if our situation may qualify for a estafa case. My sister-in-law collected some money from us (brother, aunt, and my mother ) and promised that it will be used for a project or small business. She promised us a monthly interest of 5%. It was ok for a couple of months but beginning last year, june 2016, we have not receive any from her. We decided to just widaw our money amounting to 350k but up until now, we are not getting anything. She said that something happened to the money and the person to whom she entrust the money promised to give it back but can't promise as to when theywill return..We keep on asking my sister-in-law to tell us who the person is but she didn't want to. We are thinking of filing a estafa against her or against the person on where she entrusted the money. Please advise us..
