PLAINTIFF, thru the undersigned Counsel, unto this Honorable Court, respectfully alleges: 1. That Plaintiff is of legal age, Filipino, married to Nancy A.

Gatmaitan, and with residence at # 11 Bohol St., Barangay Horseshoe, Quezon City; 2. That Defendant is likewise of legal age, Filipino, married

and with residence at # 15 Bohol St., Barangay Horseshoe, Quezon City, where he could be served with summons and other processes of the Court; 3. That the above-named spouse of Plaintiff is the erstwhile

business partner of the defendant from year 2007 to 2009; 4. That in the course of their business, the plaintiffs spouse

made financial contributions through the request and assurances of the defendant that such amount will be repaid. That however, after several months and upon inquiry, plaintiffs spouse found out that defendant misappropiated the financial investments made for his own personal use. That despite demands, defendant failed to remit to and/or settle with the plaintiffs spouse the aggregate amount of Ninety Eight Thousand Seven Hundred Pesos (P98,700.00);

5.

That in recognition of defendants obligation in favor of

plaintiffs spouse, the former executed an Acknowledgement of Debt in favor of the plaintiff on January 26, 2008, a photocopy of which is attached hereto as Annex A; 6. That by reason of the kindness and generosity of plaintiffs

spouse, defendants obligation through the Acknowledgement was reduced to the sum of Sixty Thousand Pesos (P60,000.00), and transferred in favor of the plaintiff as formalized n a duly-notarized Loan Agreement entered by and between the plaintiff and the defendant on January 29 2008, a photocopy of which is hereto attached as Annex B; 7. That part of said Loan Agreement is the obligation of the

defendant-debtor to pay the plaintiff-creditor the amount of Two Thousand Five Hundred Pesos (P2,500.00) in monthly installments for thirty six (36) months, in the form of cash from February 2008 to March 2011, and in the form of post-dated checks from February 2008 onwards up to the full satisfaction of said loan, including interest, set at two percent (2%) per month; 8. That after paying Two Thousand Five Hundred Pesos

(P2,500.00) in February 2008 and One Thousand Five Hundred Pesos (P1,500.00) only in March 2008 the defendant-debtor has started defaulting in the payment of his due accounts; 9. That plaintiff-creditor sent separate letters (dated April 7,

2008 and May 21, 2008) to the defendant-debtor containing a demand for the payment of his outstanding payable, photocopies of which are hereto attached as Annexes C and C-1; 10. That the continued refusal of defendant to settle his

account prompted the plaintiff-creditor to lodge a complaint with the barangay officials of Barangay Horseshoe, Quezon City. A Certificate to File Action, copy of which is hereto attached as Annex D, was subsequently issued for failure of the parties to come to an Agreement.

11.

That on June 1, 2008 a final demand letter was sent to the

defendant-debtor for the payment of his outstanding payable up to July 2008, which however, was left unheeded, a photocopy of which is hereto attached as Annex E; 12. That the demand letter was duly received by defendant

thru his wife Mrs. Veronica A. Santos on June 3, 2008, as shown by a Certification dated June 25, 2008 issued by the Quezon City Central Post Office, copy of which is hereto attached as Annex F; 13. That defendant-creditor has, as of this date, defaulted in

the payment of an aggregate amount of Twenty-six Thousand Pesos (P26,000.00); 14. That notwithstanding plaintiff-creditors repeated oral and

written demands, defendant-debtor failed and refused and still fails and refuses to heed to the formers just and valid demands, leaving the plaintiff no other recourse but to litigate and file this acton. 15. That by reason of defendants unjustified acts as well as

bad faith and intentional refusal to pay his overdue obligation, Plaintiff is entitled to the award of moral damages in the amount of P5,000.00; 16. That by reason of defendants violation and disregard of

Plaintiffs rights, the award of exemplary damages in the amount of P5,000.00 is likewise warrant to serve as a deterrent to the commission by the defendant and to others similarly-minded of similar acts in the future. PRAYER WHEREFORE, PREMISES CONSIDERED, it is most respectfully prayed of this Honorable Court that, after due hearing, judgment be rendered against the defendant ordering the latter to pay the plaintiff as follows:
