Man­ager charged with estafa

The Freeman - - NEWS - — Mylen P. Manto/FPL

A man­ager of man­power agency was in­dicted for estafa af­ter she al­legedly failed to re­turn the money she asked from the fam­ily of a do­mes­tic helper she was sup­posed to repa­tri­ate from Saudi Ara­bia.

The Cebu City Pros­e­cu­tor’s Of­fice has found prob­a­ble cause to charge Flor Pagsiat in court for estafa.

Pagsiat, a res­i­dent of Barangay Vito, Minglanilla, Cebu, was ac­cused by Su­san Cuizon, 51, res­i­dent of Barangay Luz, Cebu City, of al­legedly mis­ap­pro­pri­at­ing P29,000 she gave for the air­fare of her daugh­ter.

Cuizon said that Pagsiat, man­ager of AlKhaleej In­ter­na­tional Ser­vices Inc., asked for P39,000 be­cause her daugh­ter wants to go home from Jed­dah, King­dom of Saudi Ara­bia.

The money was sup­posed to be de­posited in the ac­count of the com­plainant’s daugh­ter so she can pay for her air­fare but the ac­cused failed to do it.

Some­time in Jan­uary this year, the com­plainant con­fronted the sus­pect who promised to re­turn the money on in­stall­ment.

They en­tered into an agree­ment with the barangay wherein Pagsiat paid an ini­tial amount of P10,000 leav­ing a bal­ance of P29,000.

How­ever, the ac­cused did not ful­fill the agree­ment de­spite re­peated de­mands for her to pay. Pagsiat was di­rected to sub­mit counter-af­fi­davit but she also ig­nored the sum­mons from the pros­e­cu­tor’s of­fice.
