Briefly, an “investment contract” exists when there is an investment or placement
of money in a common enterprise with a reasonable expectation of profits to be derived
from the efforts of others which is prominent in the scheme of MOVIE DADDY.
As such, the Securities Regulation Code (SRC) requires that said offer and sale of
securities must be duly registered with the Commission and that the concerned entity
and/or its agents should have the appropriate registration and/or license to sell such
securities to the public.
Based on the Commission’s database, MOVIE DADDY, is NOT REGISTERED as a
corporation or partnership and OPERATES WITHOUT THE NECESSARY LICENSE
AND/OR AUTHORITY to solicit, accept or take investments/placements from the
public nor to issue investment contracts and other forms of securities defined under
Section 3 of the Securities Regulation Code (SRC).
Further, the scheme employed by MOVIE DADDY, shows indication of a possible
“Ponzi Scheme” where monies from new investors are used in paying “fake profits” to
prior investors and is designed mainly to favor its top recruiters and prior risk takers
and is detrimental to subsequent members in case of scarcity of new investors.
The offering and selling of securities in the form of investment contracts using
the “Ponzi Scheme” which is fraudulent and unsustainable, is NOT a registrable
security. The Commission will not issue a License to Sell Securities to the Public to
persons or entities that are engaged in this business or scheme.
In view thereof, the public is hereby advised NOT TO INVEST or to STOP
INVESTING in the investment scheme being offered by MOVIE DADDY, and its
Those who act as salesmen, brokers, dealers or agents of MOVIE DADDY, in
selling or convincing people to invest in the investment scheme being offered by the
said entity including soliciting investments or recruiting investors through the internet

maximum fine of Five Million Pesos (Php5,000,000.00) or imprisonment of
Twenty One (21) years or both pursuant to Section 73 of the SRC (SEC vs. Oudine
