x--------------------------------x

ANSWER

DEFENDANT MICHELLE MAE P. ANDOY, by undersigned


counsel, unto this Honorable Court most respectfully states that:

1. Paragraphs one (1) and two (2) of the Complaint are admitted;

2. Paragraphs three (3) and four (4) of the Complaint are denied
for lack of knowledge or information sufficient to form a belief as to
the veracity or falsity thereof, the allegations therein being matters
known only to and are within the control only of the plaintiff;

3. Paragraph five (5) of the Complaint is denied insofar as it


alleges that the defendant owes the plaintiff a sum of money and
fails to pay the same, the truth being those alleged in the special
and affirmative defenses part hereinbelow;

SPECIAL AND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSES

1. On May 25, 2015, the Defendant and the Plaintiff did not see
each other because the former was having a vacation in Baguio
City as evidenced by the photocopy of entry/exit of vehicles
monitoring sheet, attached herein, marked as Annex A, and made
an integral part hereto. Such monitoring sheet is issued by the
Gate Security Department of the Subdivision where the Defendant
resides.

2. The Plaintiff never gave the defendant the alleged amount of


Three Hundred Fifty Thousand Pesos (350,000.00); that
Defendant did not sign the alleged promissory note; and that
Defendants signature is forged.

3. On November 5 and November 6, 2015, the Defendant and
the Plaintiff did not see each other because the former visited her
late grandmother in San Pedro, Laguna as evidenced by the
photocopy of entry/exit of vehicles monitoring sheet, attached
herein, marked as Annex B, and made an integral part hereto.
Such monitoring sheet is issued by the Gate Security Department
of the Subdivision where the Defendant resides.

COMPULSARY COUNTERCLAIM

1. By reason of the abuse of right committed by the plaintiff


and by reason of the instant precipitate and unfounded suit, the
defendant was constrained to hire the services of a lawyer to defend
his rights and interests for a professional fee of Twenty-Thousand
Pesos (20,000.00) and Three Thousand Pesos (3,000.00) per
court appearance;

2. Similarly, the plaintiffs unfounded suit has caused the


defendant mental anguish, wounded feelings, sleepless nights,
serious anxieties, and other similar sufferings for which the
defendant claims moral damages of One Hundred Thousand Pesos
(100,000.00).

PRAYER

WHEREFORE, PREMISES CONSIDERED, it is respectfully


prayed to this Honorable Court the dismissal of the complaint for
lack of merit with costs against the plaintiff; and that the
defendants compulsory counterclaim be granted, i.e., moral
damages of One Hundred Thousand Pesos (100,000.00),
attorneys fees of Twenty-Thousand Pesos (20,000.00), and Three
Thousand Pesos (3,000.00) per court appearance and costs of
suit.

Other reliefs just and equitable under the premises are


likewise prayed for.
