My Mom got scammed for Php 500, 000.00 plus interest. This guy, who is a grand child of a family friend approached her to invest for a 4 percent return every month for six months until the contract matures. The first six months were fine; however, when my Mom was convinced to renew after constant follow-ups from this guy, things went south by the second month. His checks started to bounce, and now his account is closed.
His grandmother admitted that they sent him to the US for his security and to avoid implications; apparently, he had other victims. The family does not intend though to cover for the mess that this guy left.
We plan to file estafa and bouncing checks; however, since he's in abroad already; is it still advisable to us to file a case? Could we also implicate his Mother who was there during the time that this guy was transacting with my Mom? How about his grandmother who admitted to send his grandson away to avoid implications?
I really need your help guys.
