Docketed as Civil Case No. 14-14339, Bacolodnon Joe Marie L. Sy filed the complaint against Bank of the Philippine islands (BPI), specifically BPI’s branch in Pasong Tamo.

In his complaint, Sy claimed his bank deposits "were fraudulently withdrawn and to cover up the fraud, bank records and checks under his name (were) electronically falsified."

The suit includes P21,755, 525.84 in actual damages, P10 million in moral and exemplary damages or a total of P31,755,525.84."

Sy said "audit is still on-going and the amount could increase to a range between P40 million to P60 million."

Sy was a former employee of Roche Philippines which he served for 24 years until his retirement in December, 2008.

During his employment at Roche, his salaries, bonuses and allowances were deposited by his employer through a payroll bank account... initially at BPI-Bacolod, and later at Pasong Tamo branch.

He then had five bank accounts with BPI-Pasong Tamo - three savings accounts, a current account and a dollar account.

Due to substantial amounts of cash he deposited with BPI and the volume of his transactions, he also qualified as a Gold Card member and was issued another special card called "Privileges", entiling him to a lot of perks and benefits.
