If Amalilio is a Filipino Citizen why Malaysian Authority kept him? He should be deported to Philippines. if he lacks papers or documents how did he got out from Malaysia to scam Filipino people? And hoe did he got out from Philippines if he lacks of Documents? There's something fishy going on?

I think they are playing games business / I think these group of scammers, fraud, are kind of insider connections. Maybe these Amalilio groups got the Filipino Data from the banks because how did they got into this Huge scam. Interesting and they did victimized these people.

crystal's theory of Amalilio scam:

Motive number 1.

They hired all professionals as their good connection in business. They hired these professionals people to run Amalilio's group so that people would entice them to invest their money into Amalilio's Group.

Then these group of people used their mouth to mouth advertisement to convinced people to invest money.

Motive number 2.

They approached people like Fishermen, vendors, sweepers, bakers and gave them money even if they didn't invest any amount of money.

And then these people spread the news to everyone .

Motive Number 3.

Their next target, people who have huge savings accounts like teachers, businessmen, doctors, nurse, lawyers, etc. that they will get a huge return of their money. Nice lies. And stupid people who bite the baits. They are greed and clueless.

Motive Number 4.

They deposited all the scammed Money in Malaysia and NOT in the Philippines. A 12 Billions of money were being siphoned out in the Philippines? OMG!

Motive Number 5. The Amalilio group were being protected by PNP or Police? Why are we Filipinos are being so stupid, I thought you only listen to your God? Why they didn't get a clue by phoning to check the Security Banks if these group are legal or not?

Yes, this guy or these groups knows a lot about Filipinos weaknesses, the Flow of their money, whom they could victimize.

Amalilio married a Filipino and used her status to scam people in the Philippines.
Amalilio should be brought back to Philippines and he should return all the people's money.

They gave away cars to these people. I bet those cars were from car napping from Davao City because a lot of cars in the Philippines were missing. Hmmmmmmmm? Very suspicious activity.

people scammed money from Filipino people and invested the money into Philippines business. Filipinos are being cooked by their own hard-earned money. Filipinos should invest their money by doing business on their own NOT to these scammers.

ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 02/03/2013 12:28 AM | Updated as of 02/03/2013 12:28 AM

Aman Futures founder Manuel Amalilio is related to a high-ranking Malaysian official, who blocked his deportation two weeks ago.

Amalilio, who is accused of duping investors in Visayas and Mindanao of billions of pesos, is said to be a nephew of Sabah's chief minister, Musa Aman.

The Palace vows to pursue Amalilio's return to Manila so he can face charges of large-scale estafa.-- ANC World Tonight, Feb. 2, 2013

See! it's not only the politicians stole billions of money from corruption vut other countries as well.

This guy used him to scammed Filipino people by snooping all their whereabouts and scammed them big time? Yes, Filipino workers working abroad and send billions of remiitance money and then these group of scam people stole billions of Filipino people? Why are these country like Malaysia is protecting this crook who stole and scammed our Filipino people? If he did something wrong to people it doesn't matter where he's from he should be liable and NOT being protected by the Malaysian officials . Who cares if he's the SON OF GOD OR NEPHEW OF GOD!!! this guy should be liable to his own action. He stole billions of Money from Filipino people by scam! And used this Filipina wife to scammed our Filipino people! When are we going to learn, Filipinos? Why are we so dumb and stupid and let these things happen to our own country? Why are we letting these group stole our hard-earned money? Huh? Shame of them!

They are telling to the whole world that they are economicallyy stable and one of the Tigers in Asia and yet they go to Philippines and scammed Filipino people? What kind of economic society do they have? Stealing! Fooling! Scamming other countries for their bread and butter? Amd why do the Malaysian Officials tolerating this kind of behavior? This is worst than a corrupt officials in the Philippines?And then investing back the money that they stole from Filipino people? Wake up Filipinos! I think we are being duped by them because we are too kind people?

President Aquino III should have discussed the case of fugitive Amalilio in Davos, Switzerland when he met with the Federation of Malaya( 11 states)Prime Minister Razak during the World Economic Forum.

Who knows, maybe the two leaders might have discussed the status of Sabah in the sidelines when they were there in Davos.

As the world knows, Sabah belongs to the Sultanate State of Sulu and Bangsamoro which up to now the Federation of Malaya is still paying annual rent to the Sulu Sultanate in the amount of $ 1500.00 dollars.

I just hope that he's deported back here, as to the Sabah issue I wouldn't like the pres to push it. I can imagine Malaysia offering the Sultan a few million dollar and I have no doubt that he and his people gladly accept that. I know the feeling

Amalilio deportation deliberately blocked: Malaysian solon

Where's the P12 billion?' asks Malaysian opposition leader
MANILA (UPDATED)- Sabah officials deliberately blocked the deportation of scam artist Manuel Amalilio, a Malaysian parliament member claimed Friday.
Sivarasa Rasiah, however, did not name the officials who prevented Amalilio, the alleged brains behind the P12-billion Aman Futures scam, from being brought to the Philippines to face multiple criminal cases.
"It's quite clear to us, having spoken to people here, that Sabah authorities deliberately blocked Amalilio's deportation," he told ANC.
Sivarasa confirmed that the alleged con artist is a relative of Sabah chief minister. "Amalilio's mother is a cousin of Musa Aman, the chief minister of Sabah," he said.
"There are a lot of questions about this entire episode. It's clear people in Malaysia don't want Amalilio to be returned to Philippines," he said.
Musa, in a statement, admitted that Amalilio is a relative but denied interfering in the case.
"I was alerted of online allegations that I had intervened to prevent the deportation of this individual to the Philippines," he said. "Let me make it very clear that the Sabah State Government did not and will not intervene in this matter."
"I have a large family and I have just recently been informed that this individual is a distant relative," he added. "Whether or not Amalilio is a relative, the authorities should investigate the matter and take the necessary action. No one is above the law."
After his failed deportation, Amalilio was sentenced to 2-year imprisonment in Malaysia for possession of a fake Philippine passport.
"It sounds to me that's a self-serving plea of guilt intended so he won't be repatriated back to the Philippines," Sivarasa said.
The passport case also drew questions from Darrell Leiking, deputy secretary general of the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).
"I wonder who made that complaint about (Amalilio's) fake Philippine passport. I don't know who came up with the (case)," he told ANC.
Sivarasa, a lawyer, said Amalilio has both Malaysian and Philippine citizenship papers.
"[Amalilio] appears to have Malaysian documentation, but he also has legal Filipino documentation," he said.
Sivarasa said investigators should try to find out where Amalilio and Aman Futures officials hid the money they allegedly earned from the scam that duped thousands of people in the Visayas and Mindanao.
"We need to find out something very important -- where is this P12 billion? Nobody seems to know where the money is," he said.
Sivarasa said he will bring the case to the attention of Malaysian Prime Minister Mohd Najib Abdul Razak.
"We are going to make an appeal to the Malaysian prime minister that he has to intervene, make sure there's cooperation with Philippine authorities," he said.
Although the Philippines and Malaysia have no bilateral extradition treaty, the 2 countries are members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and have signed a treaty on mutual legal assistance on criminal matters.
"We're morally and legally obliged to assist, not impede," Sivarasa said.
The PKR sent the 2 representatives to Manila to meet with Philippines authorities and the victims who were allegedly duped Amalilio, according to Malaysian media.

continuation-

"This is a serious case that reflects on corruption in Malaysia. The Sabah chief minister has, more than once, been implicated in allegedly defending graft perpetrators," PKR vice-president Tian Chua told malaysiakini.com .
Tian Chua, who is a member of the Malaysian parliament, expressed concern over the Amalilio case and Sabah officials' failure to allow Philippine authorities to bring him to Manila to face trial.
"As a member of parliament and on behalf of the Malaysian people, we are concerned about what is happening. This involves the nation’s image. We feel obliged to find the truth," he said.
"We also express regret that the Malaysian government did not cooperate, but obstructed the Filipino government in this issue,” he added.

Malaysian lawmakers? they sound like a typical representative of the ultra-kiasu opposition party. They'll do all they can to win a seat in Sabah because they want a cut from all the businesses there too.

Fact is this Amalilio guy went to Malaysia with fake passport. And they have legal Malaysian and Filipino documents. In Malaysia, from what I remember we don't allow dual citizenship, this alone is a felony. The blame should be placed on the people who let this man get away abroad with fake passport. With Philippines track record I won't be surprised that he has multiple genuine passports.

this guy is with his family in Malaysia. very good plan and no way he is suffering any hard times there.

every flip politician connected to him will say they were all scammed and none will go to prison for it.

billions are being divided among the thieves while the country whirls in horror.

in a few months they will begin again and be successful again.
