depends on what's on those papers. if this is in the philippines, and this is purely a loan (no trust agreement, no checks, no deceit), then failure to pay a debt is not a crime.

casper, they can file a case of bouncing checks against you.

cyber, obviously, we can't answer the question without more details. try to find out the story, but the basic point here is that in the philippines, the mere failure to pay a debt is not a crime.
