CABANATUAN CITY, Nueva Ecija -- Investors who poured huge amount to New G, a crypto currency stocks led by now detained Arnel Ordonio, continued to flock to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) here to file complaint on Tuesday.

Already, over 200 alleged victims have filed complaints against Ordonio's group since last week.

One of the complainants was Phoebe Alban, 23, a resident of Sta. Rosa town of this province, who represented her husband who supposedly poured in PHP7 million into the controversial bitcoin stocks.

The NBI would not issue statement as of press time.

Alban said her husband, a government employee, loaned a huge amount to make an initial investment of more than PHP300,000 in September 2017.

She said each investment slot equivalent to PHP160,000 shall have a corresponding pay-out of PHP40,000 for every 16 days until the capital amount is returned after three months.

Alban said her husband's initial investment grew from PHP300,000 to P4 million.

An additional investment of PHP3 million came from her husband's friends for a total investment of PHP7 million.

Alban said everything was well with all the amounts due them, delivered on that first round although they knew some less fortunate investors whose payment were unclaimed after New G, Ordonio's group, was reportedly banned from using the web sometime in December.

In January, however, New G again asked them to invest as it allegedly has created a new payment scheme to ensure the return of investments, Alban said.

"He received payment in the old slot. Then, in January, there was a new slot where my husband was paid three times. In February, my husband poured it all which he was supposed to get payment on the 15th of the said month. However, it was declared that payment was halted and was promised to receive payment on March 25, 26 and 27. That was the time all went to nothing,” she added. (PNA)
