Another estafa complaint filed vs Amalilio, cohorts
MANILA, Philippines—Even if there is no certainty when Aman Futures Group head Manuel Amalilio will be back, another complaint for syndicated estafa has been filed against him and other Aman officials in Iligan City.
Aside from Amalilio, named respondents include Malik Camid, Engineer Gamal Datu Azam Camid, Mohamad Mangadang, Land Transportation Office Director Monadato Mangadang, a certain “Mr. Kamal, “Audie,” “Rolly” and several John Does.
Based on the 19-page complaint filed Wednesday, Almerah Mamalampac from Marawi City said she invested P1-million in Aman Futures after she was promised a 60 to 61 percent return of her investment in 17 days.
She said she was invited to invest sometime in September 2012. She met with Camid at the house of the LTO official where the opening of Aman Iligan branch was discussed.
Mamalampac said they were informed that the investments should not be lower than P1-million and 2.5 percent of every investment will serve as “zakatsa” or aid for the poor.
When news about Aman broke out, she said they were given a run around by the officials from Marawi to Cebu to Manila on how they could recover their money.
