Modtech Global is not related to OPM Corp.
MARILOU PENGOSRO, La Trinidad, Benguet

This has reference to an article published in the Aug. 26, 2018 issue of the Courier titled: “City Hall closes investment company for lack of permit.”

In the said article, it was mentioned that “The three employees failed to provide any information about the company’s business permit and SEC registration since their manager, an owner of one Mod-tech Global, was not present during the implementation of the closure order.”

With all due respect, the statement in the article is not accurate.

In truth, I am the one who leased the said office from the owner of Hellujah Building at Magsaysay Ave. I use the same as my office as I am the exclusive distributor of Modtech Global in the Cordillera.

Sometime in the second week of August, I was approached by one George Tan Madrigal who represented himself as an agent of Orro Platta Manna Corporation (OPM Corp.) and he has signified that they intend to sublease a portion of the office I was leasing. Madrigal represented to me that OPM Corp. is engaged in the business of selling PMS green coffee and perfume. OPM Corp. started to lease a portion of the office I was leasing on Aug. 13, and we agreed that they would lease the same until Feb. 15, 2019. However, the closure order was implemented before we could execute a lease agreement.

When OPM Corp. started to occupy a portion of my office, I noticed that they were receiving huge amounts of money from their clients. I became suspicious so I inquired with the Baguio City Police Station and I was informed that OPM Corp. was already reported to them to be allegedly engaged in a possible investment scam.

I was present during the implementation of the closure order and was the one who gave the keys to the office to operatives of the Intelligence Unit of the Baguio City Police Office.

Modtech Global is not related to OPM Corp. Unfortunately, the statement in your article indicating that Modtech Global is related to OPM Corp. tends to undeservingly damage the reputation of Modtech Global. Hence, it is respectfully requested that this letter will correct the inaccurate information (which was provided in the report of BCPO and forwarded to the Courier).
