THE Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG)-Caraga has recorded 107 complaints against “Forex” or “FRX Rice Trading” investment scam since the recovery of P23 million from its safe house last June 26.
The complainants came from Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Sur, Butuan City and Kidapawan City, the Police Regional Office-Caraga disclosed.
Brigadier General Gilberto DC Cruz, PRO-Caraga regional director urged other victims to file their complaints at the office of CIDG-Caraga.
Cruz said the filing of large scale estafa is being prepared against the founders of the said investment scam.
Police said the only way to get the victims' money back is to file a case against Forex.
Cruz also appealed to the public to help authorities in tracking the whereabouts of Dimber Celiz, the alleged manager of the investment scam.
It is believed that Celiz has either fled to Cagayan de Oro City or in the neighboring towns.
