I.S. No. _______ For: Violation of B.P. Blg. 22.



I, WARREN CRUZ, of legal age, Filipino, single with business and postal address at No. 36 Alma Jose Street, Zabarte Road, Caloocan City, after having been duly sworn to in accordance with law, hereby accuses: MS. SUSANA SANTOS, Owner and Manager of ABCDE Pawnshop, Fairview Quezon City Branch with postal address at No. 10 IpilIpil Street, Fairview, Quezon City where summons and notices may be served for Estafa and for violation of BP 22 committed as follows: 1.0 That, On November 19, 2011, at my residence in the City of Caloocan City, Ms. Santos went to my house to borrow money in the amount of P 1,000,000.00 (One million pesos) for the rehabilitation and maintenance of her pawnshop as evidenced by our contract of loan marked as Annex A.. 2.0 That, on the same day, I lent her P 1,000,000.00 payable until November 20, 2012. 3.0 That, on November 19, 2012, one day before the end of the contract, Ms. Susana Santos issued a check payable to me which is the subject of this case in the amount of P 1,000,000.00 dated November 20, 2012 and numbered as No. 123456 herein marked as Annex B.

4.0 That, on the date of the check I went to BPI-Quezon City to encash the same and to my dismay,I was apprehended by the drawee bank that they are dishonoring the check due to insufficency of funds. 5.0 That, she defrauded me to part with my money when he issued a check with insufficient funds. She issues checks knowing very well that the same is worthless. 6.0 That, As such, I immediately notified the respondent, of the dishonor and return of the said check and demanded from her that she make good the said check within five days (5) days from receipt thereof. A true and faithful machine reproduction of my demand letter to her is hereto attached as Annex "C". 7.0 That, when the respondent failed to heed my demands, I endorsed the said check to my legal counsel who immediately sent a formal demand letter through registered mail with return card on November 30,2012, which was received by the respondent on November 28, 2012. As of date however, Ms. Susana Santos has unjustifiably ignored all these demands to pay the said account and/or to redeem the said returned check. A true and faithful machine reproduction of the formal demand letter and the return receipt of the registered mail we sent to her are hereto attached as Annex D and Annex E. 8.0 That, I am therefore executing this Complaint-Affidavit in support of the charges for violation of BatasPambansa Bilang 22 against the said Ms. Susana Ssantos, who may be served with subpoena and other processes of this Honorable Office at her last known address at No. 10Ipil- Ipil Street, Fairview, Quezon City, Philippines.
