transportation business since 2013 up to present;

b. Sometime on 2016, he came to me and asked me if I could lend him

money in the amount of P300,000.00 which he will use to infuse more
capital in operating his other businesses;

c. He assured me that he will pay the amount with interest and that he
will issue a check as collateral of said loan. Since the loan will be
secured by a check, I decided to lend him the same amount. On
__________________ at __________________________ we went to
(name of bank) and there I handed him the P300,000.00 cash, in turn he
issued an undated check in the amount of P350,000.00 and told me to
just write the date thereon upon encashment and assured me that his
account is funded and I can encash the amount any time;

same was refused for the reason DRAWN AGAINST INSUFFICIENT

e. Since we are business partners, I verbally informed Mr. Nicolas that

his check was refused because of insufficient funds, he just made
another promise to deposit cash in his account. I gave him several
chances to make good his check but still he did not comply. Aggrieved,
I sent him a formal demand letter on April 18, 2017. A copy of the
demand letter is hereto attached as ANNEX C;
