CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – Thirty businesses and construction firms in various areas in the Philippines are now slapping large scale estafa against suspected “Estafa Queen” Erma Towle.

After her arrest in Marikina, Philippine National Police (PNP) transferred the suspect in Lanao del Norte Regional Trial Court for arraignment on Thursday morning. The warrant of arrest was issued by Presiding Judge Leonor Quiñones after the complainant, Casangoan Marohom, filed a case of estafa against Towle.
However, on the same day, the authorities did not specify why there was no arraignment against the suspect.

According to the complainant, Towle conspired with her Malaysian husband, Bradley Miles Towle, who is a fugitive in his home country, on bearing crimes of large scale human trafficking and illegal recruitment.

Based on reports, a total of P100-million was deposited in Towle’s account after numerous construction firms inked contracts in their companies namely; Ramp-I General Constructions and Global Green Energy Ventures.

The remaining 30 clients of Towle found out that the company is selling fraudulent items, runned by swindlers.

The police are now on pursuit operation against Melanin Balosong Pajarong, Joseph Morales, Marieta Marquez, Alan Vilamor, Hydie Viaco, Engr. Joel Lacera,  Fatima Manaloto, together with Bradley Miles Towle, who were the corporate staff and officers of the two firms. / Edited by Bombo Sol Marquez
