• November 12, 1992
o Petitioner applied for credit accommodation with respondent bank for pre-shipment financing. The credit accommodation was granted. Petitioner was successful in his first two export transactions both drawn on the letter of credit. The third export shipment, however, yielded a different result.
• February 22, 1993
o Petitioner submitted to respondent the necessary documents for his third shipment. Wanting to be paid the value of the shipment in advance, petitioner negotiated for a documentary sight draft to be drawn on the letter of credit, chargeable to the account of Bank of Seoul. The sight draft represented the value of the shipment in the amount of US$59,640.00.
o By virtue of the letter of undertaking, respondent advanced the value of the shipment which, at the current rate of exchange at that time was P1, 495,115.16, less bank charges, to petitioner. Respondent then sent all the documents pertinent to the export transaction to the Bank of Seoul.
o Respondent failed to collect on the sight draft as it was dishonored by non-acceptance by the Bank of Seoul. The reasons given for the dishonor were late shipment, forged inspection certificate, and absence of countersignature of the negotiating bank on the inspection certificate. Goldwell Trading likewise issued a stop payment order on the sight draft because most of the bags of dried sea cucumber exported by petitioner contained soil.
o Due to the dishonor of the sight draft and the stop payment order, respondent demanded restitution of the sum advanced. Petitioner failed to heed the demand.
• June 3, 1993
o Respondent filed a complaint for recovery of sum of money with the RTC in Cebu City. In his answer, petitioner alleged that his liability under the sight draft was extinguished when respondent failed to protest its non-acceptance, as required under the Negotiable Instruments Law (NIL). He also alleged that the letter of undertaking is not binding because it is a superfluous document, and that he did not violate any of the provisions of the letter of credit.
• September 25, 1996
o the RTC rendered judgment in favor of respondent
