Luis Manzano was slapped with a complaint before the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) after 100 investors of Flex Fuel allegedly failed to recover their investment on the petroleum company, according to Bilyonaryo.com. Manzano used to be the chairman of Flex Fuel.
The complaint against Manzano and businessman Ildefonso “Bong” Medel Jr. was filed by five of the 100 investors — each investor allegedly provided P990,000 or a total of almost P100 million to Flex Fuel.
The complainants’ spokesperson — Jinky Sta. Isabel — also told Bilyonaryo.com that Manzano was the one who proposed and convinced them of the Flex Fuel investment plan during a Zoom conference.
“We invested because of Luis Manzano. His message during a Zoom conference in 2020 resonated with us. We trusted in Flex Fuel because his name was attached to it.

“Manzano told us he’s no longer connected with the company. However, it was him who represented Flex Fuel to us in 2020 and that’s why we invested,” Sta. Isabel claimed.
In a letter to NBI Director Atty. Medardo de Lemos, Manzano’s attorney Regidor Caringal defended the actor, saying that his client resigned as chairman of Flex Fuel in February 2022, as reported by PUSH.
Medel’s company also allegedly owes Manzano P66 million.
In an affidavit, Manzano said that he was not involved in managing Flex Fuel and that Medel was the one handling the operations of the company.
“I never took part in the management of the business.
"Bong conducted the business in such a way that operational matters were kept away from me," Manzano stated.
