Hello po.

These are the details of the case:

1. I was given a new cellphone worth 14,000.00, however, i only made an initial payment of 4,000.00 and we had a verbal agreement with the cellshop owner that i will pay the remaining balance by installment basis.

2. we did not make any written agreement, he has only the receipt of the initial payment I made earlier.

2. I have failed several times to pay installment of the remaining balance and he filed a complaint in the barangay and the complaint was DEMAND OF PAYMENT.

3. I wasnt the 1 who personally received the 2 summons but the last summon i personally received it.

WILL THERE BE LEGAL REPERCUSSIONS IF I WILL STILL IGNORE THE LAST SUMMON OF THE BARANGAY? wHAT WILL BE THE SPECIFIC ACTIONS OF THE BRGY IF I WILL IGNORE THE LAST SUMMON? IS THERE A PLAUSIBLE CIVIL CASE THE COMPLAINANT CAN BRING TO COURT AFTER THE BARANGAY?

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

thank you for the replies!

Just today, I was informed also that the Brgy Chairman will be filing a contempt of court in the MTC. Could you please inform me about contempt of court, punishments and remedies when they filed a contempt of court from the case above.

Thank you very much.
