One Lightning Corporation Scam, NBI on manhunt for OLC officials

I was playing with my daughter when I heard the news on TV about One Lightning Corporation.

According to the news reporter, the NBI or National Bureau of Investigation arrested one of the owners or incorporators of One Lightning Corporation in the name of Marcos Jordan De Mesa, and NBI is currently on manhunt for the other 7 people who are behind this company, namely:

  1. Terrence Kenji Ito (President)
  2. Theodore Yuji Ito (Chairman)
  3. Jake Ryu Oprecio (Incorporator)
  4. Aldus Renier Tubiera (Incorporator)
  5. Joanary Roxas (Incorporator)
  6. Kent Ortiz (Incorporator)
  7. Edmer Maligaya (Incorporator)

De Mesa was at their Aero International office in Quezon City when the NBI agents served a warrant issued by the Pasig Court for syndicated estafa, which is a non-bailable crime.

Aero International is one of this group’s several companies, and which the SEC or Securities Exchange Commission has issued warnings to also. The other companies are Forward Direct Selling Corporation and Oasis Wellness and Beauty Corporation, which are all engaged in direct selling and networking.

These eight individuals are young professionals, with ages ranging from 22 to 28 and they were all issued hold departure orders by the Pasig Regional Trial Court Branch 155.

Who is One Lightning Corporation and why was it shut down by SEC?

One Lightning Corporation is a direct selling and investment firm that was shut down by SEC for allegedly failing to return as much as P500 million from 100 investors.

I did further research about One Lightning Corporation. Though I didn’t find a lot of websites and I couldn’t even get in to their website at, I was able to find some of their videos on YouTube.

This is a video of the President of One Lightning Corporation, trying to explain the solutions for their ongoing issues with SEC, on rebates, and with their company in general.

By watching their videos above, their President, Terrence Kenji Ito, seemed to be sincere and concerned about his company and members and he continued to give updates even if it’s almost hopeless to be solved.

But it’s too late for them because NBI is already hunting them. They have to face the charges against them and pay the price for what they’ve done.

I have a few friends who have asked me to join this company before and good thing I didn’t join. But I feel sorry for those who have invested their hard-earned money and ended up losing it because this business turned out to be a scam or illegal.

With all the different investment opportunities available nowadays, it’s sometimes difficult to spot which of them are legit and which are illegal or scams. That’s why it’s very important to be cautious when making financial decisions.

Research and investigate the company before you invest. If it sounds too good to be true, the more you need to investigate and be cautious.
