Ben Jordan British expat fraudster. Thief in the Philippines

Ben Jordan. British fraudster 

As some are aware my business partner and I bought a bar/restaurant. Fate has it that the owner, Ben Jordan and his girlfriend, Shaarni Ellen Balde did a runner and did not hand over the keys when he received full payment. The reason for this is that he was 5 months behind in rent and the whole thing was a scam to take our money. We find out he was locked out when he said he had closed to set up a business in Palawan. His phone is now disconnected and his girlfriends says wrong number. 

If he is in Palawan he better be looking over his shoulder as I wont stop until he suffers the consequences. We will be filing charges and management of Persimmon are sueing him for unpaid rent. At this stage Persimmon are willing to give us the keys on proof of payment, just waiting on more details but this shows that when some say be careful dealing with Filipinos as it's not just Filipinos it's some expats as well.

Anyone who happens to find his whereabout I would appreciate if you let me know.

Palawan is a small tight community so I'm sure he won't go hidden long. I've got friends in the local community there that know most of the main players in Puerto Princesa and I'll pass his name on for them to look out for.

That's assuming that Ben Jordan is his real name.

Sorry to hear of your encounter with the guy JGF, especially him being British,it is embarrassing.

Don't let this piece of trash set back your plans. If you can move ahead with opening then you can still come out wiser and successful. His time will come for sure and he will always need to look over his shoulder.

Good luck and Best wishes for the Holiday Season ahead.

Also sorry to learn of your troubles. Put a contract out on him - let's say I know some ppl who know some ppl - and leave it at that. 

Oth, the place looks great! Even though you're off to a rocky start I wish you great success! See ya in February.

Just thought of something else that you may not be aware of and my bad if you've already thought of it or did it - when you file the charges (with help of your attorney?) then request that the PNP / NBI notify the BOI. They'll flag his file and, once done, they are not supposed to renew his visa; plus they are also supposed to detain him and  immediately call the PNP to have him taken into custody.  

But I also know the reality of how well the system works there, lol. At the bare minimum the BOI may eventually provide the PNP / NBI with a valid adress for him. 

In addition, request that the NBI updates his file so can't get an exit visa clearance (that's where your attorney might be helpful). 

Any chance you got a photo of him? Can print up some old school "Wanted Dead or Alive" posters, lol.

Seriously, as all us white guys look the same to the locals a photo will be helpful (your attorney might be able to get one from the BOI).
