A swindler listed as the No. 9 Most Wanted Person in Calamba was arrested by the CIDG Laguna Field Unit and the local police early evening of April 29, 2022 in Mangubat Ave., Bural Main, Dasmarinas, Cavite.
Police arrested JIM PATRICK VIZCARRA GOYENECHEA who is wanted for violation of Art. 315 of the Revised Penal Code as amended by PD 1689 or Swindling (Estafa) and for violation of six (6) counts of Bouncing Check Law (BP 22) in the Warrants of Arrest both issued by Hon. Leah Angeli Bacolor Vasquez-Abad, Presiding Judge of MTCC, Branch 1, Calamba City, Laguna.
According to the complaint lodged by a certain Leonardo S Roldan of Calamba City, he was lured by the suspect to invest a total of Php800,000.00 in Forex Trading with a 15% monthly return of investment under the Emgoldex company and Impulse and Peppermint companies based in Australia. However, the suspect failed to deliver the promised return on investment while all his issued checks bounced.
