US National. Met a girl online. Known for a number of years through correspondence and online web chats with cam through YM!. Eventually asked for financial help with the promise to pay it back. Wired money. Over the next two years, asked for more help. I suggested that maybe it would be better for her to come to the US where I could take care of her, she agreed. Talk of marriage. Come to find out that she is married already with a child. Have many wire receipts along with correspondence agreeing to marry (or to pay me back). I have a phone number and name (no address). Through my own investigation, I was able to find her husband's name and employment, child's name and date of birth, and last known address. I am able to tie the phone number to her. However, I understand the burden will be to prove that she is the person I have been in contact with.
Do I have a case for estafa (looking at Php500K minimum)? And if so, how thin or how solid would my evidence be (or have to be)?
