The P100,000 he received from the person he was supposed to victimize was obtained from Oleta.

The NBI said that someone approached them as a victim of the suspect’s investment scam, who was promised huge profits if they invested in the piggery business.

“Kailangan niyang mag-invest ng pera para sa kanilang piggery business at ang magiging hatian ay 30-70. Lumalabas na lang pala ang lahat ng ginawa ng suspek sa ating complainant,” said Atty. Gisele Garcia-Dumlao, NBI spokesperson.

“Meron siyang tseke na ii-issue sa iyo as a guarantee na hindi ka niya maloloko. Pero ano ang nangyari? Nawala rin lahat,” said the complainant “Rina,” not her real name.

“Wala talaga sir na baboy. As in pumunta ako roon sa location, walang baboy. Sobrang sakit po kasi ‘yung insurance na nakuha ko nang mamatay ang father ko, napunta sa kaniya,” added Rina.

Oleta is facing a complaint of estafa and a violation of the Securities Regulation Code.
