How to HUNT DOWN and file a legal case to a Wedding Photographer who SCAMMED Us

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


Arresto Menor
We hired a wedding photographer, Mxxxx to cover our wedding last August 21, 2010. Until now, he has not given us any of his deliverables. We paid him Php37,500 for the package, with the remaining amount of Php2,500 to be paid upon submission of his deliverables.

He gave various excuses for the delay of his deliverables, and finally stopped communicating with us around March of 2011.

We, together with his two other victims, went to the address stated on the contract, and another new address which we found in the internet. We failed to find him at his new address but were directed to the old address, where his relatives live. All of the refused to give xxxxanaxxs' whereabouts and instead gave us his mobile number. We called him thru that mobile number IN FRONT OF HIS RELATIVES, and he didn't answer.

His uncle, who claimed to be a Kagawad, said that even if we submit a complaint in their Baranggay, they won't accept it cause xxx no longer lives there.

We are desperate to get help. We paid him a huge amount of money! His other victims paid him in full! We filed a complaint in DTI but they can't do anything since the address we have is not updated, all the numbers are fake too. Mic did not give us any receipt, but I do have one bank deposit/transaction under his name, xxxxxnares.

Please advice.

one possible solution is to file a complaint for estafa at the place where your wedding was held, and just use his last known address. send a demand letter first via registered mail. the failure to account for the payment and the disappearance might be considered as signs of deceit. he might appear to avoid the possibility of having a criminal record.

do not post real names, you can make yourself liable for libel and it is not important to answer your question
