MANILA, Philippines – Malaysian intelligence agents have arrested on Wednesday, January 23, Emmanuel Amalilio – the man behind a pyramid scam that victimized thousands – in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia.
The arrest ends a 3-month manhunt.
Amalilio started Aman Futures Group, a securities firm that duped 10,000 Filipinos mostly from Visayas and Mindanao into giving them investments by offering a double-your-money scheme.
Aman Futures started operating in February this year in wet markets and with vendors and tricycle drivers as initial investors. – Rappler.com
