Hello! I need your advice. I want to file a case against a person who promised me work. I am an English tutor to Koreans and Japanese students. A couple of months a ago, a friend informed me about her employer looking for a tutor. I immediately got interested so I  said I was available and asked for her help to have me and this Korean guy meet up. She  said no problem. I told her that I have a job that I need to attend to. She advised me to make some sacrifices first and wait a few days  since this student's need is urgent. I told her that at present, I am earning by the hour and I will be willing to wait if I can get a rate of PhP 300 /hour teaching business English. She promised to relay my concerns to her employer.   A few days later, I met this friend again and this time she said the Korean student is asking for a business card. I gave her my calling card. Again after a few days she came to our house and told me that the Korean guy's brother is  coming and would be needing an assistant. This friend then asked my girlfriend if she would be willing to take the job. Who wouldn't? She said the pay was good. So by this time this " friend" has me and my girlfriend hooked! After a few more days, on a Wednesday, this friend came back to our house to inform us about the good news that both me and my girlfriend can start the following week but we need to meet the guy first this coming  Friday. I had to cancel some of my bookings and make a few more sacrifices. The problem iss, the meeting never took place. A month after, I chanced upon this supposed friend one more time. I felt a bit angry about the matter but she explained to me that  she lost her cellphone but was desperately looking for us the whole time. She said the Korean guy actually asked for us. So I said, arrange the meeting, I'll give her one last chance. The next day, the friend happily informed me that there will be a lunch meeting that day so I better prepare for it. She even told me to skip lunch since the meeting will be held in a restaurant near my place. All I need to do is wait for her call. I waited for her to call me. It was already 3PM when I finally  decided to look for this Korean guy myself. To make the story short, I found him but according to him, I was never even mentioned by  my friend. I was taken for a ride!

Now my question is, what legal case can I file against this supposed friend of mine? She very well knows that I am diabetic and that I need to eat periodically yet she willingly put me in danger by making me wait . Luckily I was not dumb when it comes to eating my food. In total I sacrificed more than PhP15,000 in lost earnings from existing Japanese students while waiting for this promised job. As far as I know, I have not done anything to deserve this. She even sleeps at our place during these times she was lying to us. Can I file  for a claim? damages have been clearly done on my finances and my trust violated and my health put at risk. She even admitted thru text message her willing participation in this matter saying " ano ang pakiramdam ng pina-asa?" Please help!!
