MANILA - Police in Region 3 have arrested the wife of Aman Futures founder Manuel Amalilio, the man behind an alleged P12 billion Ponzi scheme.

Police said Abigail Pendulas was arrested at a certain party place in Dolores, San Fernando, Pampanga.

Pendulas reportedly had a nose lift, which allowed her to avoid detection. She is currently facing charges of syndicated estafa in connection with the Aman Futures scam, which victimized investors in the Visayas and Mindanao.

The scam offered investors a 30-40 percent return on their investment.

Amalilio was previously arrested in Malaysia.
