When I met my current girlfriend, she told me that her mom was a real estate broker and was currently trying to sell land owned by a fil-chinese near UP Diliman. On June 27, 2005 my father passed away and my brother and I found out that we both will receive inheritance. My girlfriends mom found out eventually about this and started talking with me about investing P1.1M and that I would be paid P5M when the sale is complete. She said that they would need the money to pay for taxes and others. It was her idea to invite me to invest and since the day she found out about my inheritance she continued to bug me everyday. Several months later when I finally received the inheritance I finally gave in and gave the money without any written contract. She told me that in a few days the sale will be finalized. However the sale did not finalize since the manner in which the property was bought by the current owner was questionable. I did not know about this and was never told so.
I few years later a was in need of money to give to my grandmother. I no longer had anything to give and was asking for t\my gf's mom since my grandmother was already asking me. She filled out a blank check given to her by her chinese friend for the amount of P1M and even told me that the check will surely bounce and to show that to my grandmother to make her stop asking. That a few days later she will be able to finally pay me. Sadly this did not happen and the check did bounce.
Now 6 years later and she progressed from being a real estate broker to having deals and transactions abroad. And up to now she has not been earning and accumulating debts left and right because of getting financiers for her so called business trips abroad.
I am very desperate on what action I can take to finally resolve this issue. It has severely affected me in mind and spirit and I hope someone can sound advise on this matter.
Thank you in advance.
