Developer charged with economic sabotage

[ ] December 17, 2010
THE National Bureau of Investigation on Thursday filed syndicated estafa and economic sabotage charges against the president of housing developer Globe Asiatique Realty Holdings Corp. and eight others as more reports emerged of irregularities in their housing projects in Pampanga.
The accused were were company president Delfin Lee, liaison officer Jacqueline Magsumbol, documentation department head Christina Sagun, property managear Jacqueline Gamboa, marketing coordinator Helen Dizon, clerk Elmer Nunag, billing and collection department staff Desiree Joy David, accountant Nanette Rose Haguiling, and lawyer Alex Alvarez, manager of the foreclosure department of the government housing agency Home Development Mutual Fund or Pag-IBIG Fund.
The charges stemmed from a complaint filed by Pag-Ibig Fund officer-in-charge Emma Linda Faria and Evelyn Niebres, Ronald Gabriel Perez San Nicolas, and Catherine Bacani, residents of Mabalacat, Pampanga.
The housing fund accused Globe Asiatique of using fake borrowers to take out millions of pesos in fraudulent housing loans. It said the borrowers had no real intention to apply for housing loans, but were paid by Globe Asiatique’s agents to sign blank loan documents that were submitted for processing.
Niebres, a walk-in client of Globe Asiatique, on Sept. 16, 2009, paid P1,537,000 for two units of Xevera Homes in Mabalacat, Pampanga. Globe Asiatique promised to deliver the title a year after it received payment.
The company reneged, so Niebres checked with Pag-IBIG and discovered that the units she had bought were covered by loans under the names of Girlie Santos Espanillo and Lerma Cariaga Villaflores. She then filed estafa charges against Global Asiatique with the NBI.
Pag-IBIG records also showed that supposed Pag-Ibig members Espanillo and Villaflores received their loans on Sept. 30, 2009, but Villaflores told the fund on Feb. 10, 2010, that she had no knowledge how her application reached Pag-ibig.
Bacani, also a walk-in client, on June 4, 2010, paid P1,130,050 for one unit and one extra lot at the Xevera Homes, but she failed to get the title to the properties as promised.
San Nicholas, an in-house client, bought a house and lot in Xevera for P830,000, and in September 2009 he initially paid Globe Asiatique P20,000 as a reservation fee.
He paid all his monthly obligations, but then found out that the unit he had bought was registered to Jennifer Fernando and Marissa Quizon. Macon Ramos-Araneta
