THE National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has filed complaints against one of the individuals who earlier claimed that billions of pesos were transferred to his account due to the Bank of the Philippine Islands' (BPI) system glitch.

Complaints of falsification by private individuals and use of falsified documents under the Revised Penal Code and violation of Section 4(c) (4) of Cybercrime Prevention Act were filed against Daniel Angelo Salasalan for his claim that more than P12 billion were deposited to his account last June 7.

NBI-Cybercrime Division Chief Head Agent Manuel Eduarte confirmed that the agency has filed complaints against Salasalan before the Manila Prosecutor's Office on Wednesday.

The NBI gave weight to the admission of the suspect that he had falsified his post.

BPI Enterprise Services Group head Ramon Jocson earlier said those claiming that billions were transferred to their accounts are making up stories.

Jocson told the lawmakers during the investigation by the Senate committee on banks, financial institutions and currencies that billions of cash transfers were impossible as having only a P1 billion deposit during the glitch would mean that the account holder had deposited P1,000 bills into at least five BPI machines 24 hours for five straight days.
